Do I really need to have the Risers serviced and how often?
Dry risers should be serviced by a qualified mechanical engineer on a visual basis every six months and be subject to a pressure test annually. This inspection is recommended by BS 5306 (1976) Part 1 and BS9990:2005
All components require to be checked as risers are prone to neglect and sometimes vandalism.
Remember that failure to have your fire equipment fully serviced and maintained could result in prosecution and could void your insurance.
