Poor Dry Riser Maintenance In Housing Associations

Estimates show that around 50% of all dry risers in England and Wales are not being maintained in accordance with current BS 9990-2015 standards. This is really worrying news. Dry riser maintenance is essential in housing associations. A visual inspection should be completed every 6 months. In addition to this a 12 monthly hydraulic test on your system should be completed too.

It is worth noting that the buildings insurance on your housing associations properties is likely to be invalid if dry riser maintenance is not completed. This is because the dry riser is such an important part of fire protection for a building, the occupants and the emergency services.
