Fire hydrants provide a high-pressure stream of water to firefighters, municipal workers, contractors, and some homeowners. The water, drawn from the municipal supply, can be used to combat fires, flush sewerage lines, fill swimming pools, and provide relief from extreme heat. Fire hydrants need to be in good working order to satisfy the demands placed on them, especially in the case of fires. For this reason, hydrants require regular maintenance and servicing to determine the state of the hydrant. Annual inspections look for corrosion, degraded O-rings, lubricant levels, gasket integrity, and overall quality of all moving parts. Failure to perform annual inspections could result in corroded parts, which could lead to injury and damage.
