Sound and sustainable fire cisterns

In terms of maintenance, fire cisterns are rather trouble-free. Fire cisterns installed by HooVos consist of sustainable parts that have little wear and tear. However, every fire cistern must undergo an annual inspection to ensure that it isn’t damaged and is able to deliver the correct flow rate. HooVos is able to regenerate older fire cisterns as well.

Fire cisterns

Always ready when needed

Extensive check-ups by HooVos

We use an equipped unit that consists of a water pump with measuring equipment, solely for fire cistern check-ups. We perform check-ups on open and closed fire cisterns. All measurements are registered and processed so that we can deliver them digitally. We assess the location and accessibility (level of vegetation, for example) and make sure serial numbers, the description of the type of cistern and the construction year are visible. We measure X and Y coordinates and the total capacity of the fire cistern. The flow rate gets determined with an approved and calibrated digital water meter. We check for other damages after which we deliver a report and certificate.

Fire cisterns from HooVos

When drilling a fire cistern, no mistakes can be made. In the event of an emergency, a fire cistern must work faultlessly, be accessible and undamaged. Sustainability is becoming increasingly important. The installation takes place according to a specific procedure; including a drilling description in accordance with (Dutch norm) NEN 5104, and a capacity test. After testing the fire cistern(s), the client will be provided with a full report.

Fire cisterns periodically inspected

After the construction of a fire cistern, it’s important to ensure proper maintenance. More and more municipalities, fire brigades, institutions and companies must therefore comply with periodic inspections. It obviously is of great importance that fire cisterns, just like any other extinguishing agent, function properly when needed. HooVos is happy to relieve you of all maintenance related worries.
