Dry risers should be inspected visually every 6 months and fully tested annually to BS9990/2006. This is the responsibility of the managing agents or owners of the building. When the system is fully checked it is important that it is tested to 10 Bar pressure for 15 minutes (this is something that other smaller testing appliances aren't able to achieve).

A few photos below depict some of our dry riser testing work.

Wessex Fire and Rescue Service offer dry riser inspection/testing services and provide this service for a number of companies within the local area as well as much of the UK. All our crews are fully trained firefighters and WFRS of course have public liability insurance. On completion we will provide you with a report and a certificate of certification (if the dry riser passes).

Contact us for further information or to book your dry riser test.
