In the last piece, we learned how terrible it is to use bad quality fire hose. Bad quality fire hose can not only cause the fire can’t be put out, but also cause property loss. This time let’s learn how to avoid buying the bad fire hose.
Before buying a fire hose
When you decide to buy a fire hose, consult from the firefighting department first. Because they can give you helpful suggestions. Part of the merchants sell fire hose door-to-door. They sell the hose in the community and countryside. While the price will be much lower than it on the market. However, the hoses are all inferior and you should never consider them.
When buying a fire hose
When buying fire equipment, especially fire hose, first you should go to the regular store. Because they are state compulsory certification products. Therefore, when buy fire hoses, check the package to see if there was compulsory certification first. Besides, check the test report to see the specs, type and producer. Then check the connectors if there was crack and scratch on the surface.
Test after the purchase
After buying the fire hose, measure the length with a tape. Regular fire hose is at least 1 meter longer than the standard spec. Therefore, if you find the length is not longer enough, it will be bad quality.
Another one is the pressure test. Press water into the fire hose with a pump and keep the pressure for 5 minutes. Regular fire hose can past the test easily, but bad one may burst. Besides, pressure will make the lining layer and cover separate. What’s more, there will be leakage on the connectors.
