Dry Fire Hydrant Repair & Maintenance #11 - Bridge Mount Replacement
By President Mark Davis
November 19, 2020

Back in September 2020, we posted a video clip about a leaking suction head on one of our bridge mount dry fire hydrants. A couple of weeks ago we finally got to make the repair and upgrade a couple of the components at the same time. A flow test was done using a 1500 gpm single-stage pumper and the rig was able to produce a 1,000+ gpm flow using two, TFT Blitzfire devices. The new stream strainer did a good job of not producing a vortex even in the relatively shallow water.
