Fire Hydrant System ("FHS")

Fire Hydrant System ("FHS")

fire hydrant system comprises a series of components including a water supply and fire hydrant (landing) valves with sufficient pressure and flow delivered through pipes throughout a building to strategically located network of valves for fire-fighting purposes.

When designing a fire hydrant system specific water supply performance objectives must be satisfied. These performance objectives require a hydraulic analysis to demonstrate there is sufficient water pressure and flow at the most hydraulically disadvantaged hydrant.

To achieve the water supply performance requirements for a fire hydrant system, the water supply may be augmented with an additional water supply such as tanks and one or more pumps to increase (boost) water pressure.
