Fire pumps installed in Australia are required to meet AS 2941:2013 – Fire pump sets, which outlines the requirements for the design, construction, installation, commissioning and maintenance of all fire pumps. Similarly, the Australian Standards outline specific performance requirements that any fire fighting pump must meet. This covers flow rate, pressure, suction and discharge capacity, and work to ensure fire pumps will provide sufficient water supply in the event of an emergency. It’s not hard to see why these standards are important and compliance is a legal requirement, but it may be more difficult to know if a fire pump meets these regulations.
Checking a Fire Pump
To ensure a fire pump meets Australian Standards:
- Check the manufacturer’s specifications: Fire hydrant pump manufacturers should provide detailed information about the products.
- Check the pump’s certification: A certified fire hydrant pump will have a label indicating compliance. This should confirm the pump meets AS 2941:2013.
- Look for the Australian Standards mark: Products that meet the Australian Standard will display a mark or logo indicating this.
