Blue fire hydrant
The fire hydrant can’t frost. Fire services can connect directly their equipments on it to pump the water from the flexible tank. The blue fire hydrant has double fonction : – suck up the water from the flexible tank – fill the flexible tank (mini pressure : 0.5 bar) Fire services know how to proceed thanks to its color : – red color : there is already pressure in the fire hydrant so they just have to connect their equipment and start using it, – blue color : you need to suck up water from the tank first cause there is no pressure. Easy to install : the fire hydrant swivels on 360°. Maintenance : it is advised to use it once a year,
