What is a hydrostatic pressure test?
In the simplest of terms, the hydrostatic pressure test confirms that your fire sprinkler and standpipe components are working properly and are acceptable for fire department use. More specifically, the test is performed every 5 years to verify that:
• The piping has been put together properly
• There are no leaks
• The fire department connection can withstand the highest pressure that the system is likely to experience.
The test is completed by applying hydrostatic pressure to the fire department connection and maintaining the pressure for up to 2 hours. The hydrostatic pressure test can only be performed by a Master Fire Suppression Contractor who has a Class A or B license issued by the NYC Department of Buildings, such as Allstate Sprinkler Corporation.

How do I prepare for the Five year hydrostatic pressure test?
To help you prepare for your upcoming Fire Department test, our team at Allstate Sprinkler Corporation recommends for you to schedule a pre-test prior to your test date in order for you to verify that your system is ready to pass inspection. A pre-test for your sprinkler system in New York City is a simulation of the Fire Department test, without the Fire Department being present. This allows us to make any necessary repairs toward your system so you can be sure it passes the test in the presence of the Fire
Department inspector. Allstate Sprinkler Corporation will go to your location to perform the pre-test, and notify you as soon as possible with our recommendations. Pending your approval, we will make the necessary repairs to your sprinkler system and re-test until the test is successful; this will ultimately limit the risk of failing your hydrostatic pressure test – saving you time, money and frustration from repeat tests and additional paperwork.
