Most public buildings have a dry riser system for the use of fire departments in the event a fire breaks out. For these buildings in Manchester, dry riser maintenance on a regular schedule is essential to safety. Fortunately, most fire protection equipment remains unused forever. However, unused equipment may become faulty over time. The dry riser which is an empty pipe that runs up inside the building is used by firefighters as a pressurised water system. It helps maintain the water pressure to water connecting valves on upper floors. The dry riser system is installed during building construction and needs to be maintained so firefighters can effectively do their job on the buildings upper floors. Imagine the loss and personal risk to firefighters when they open the hoses find there’s not enough pressure to extinguish the fires.
