Fire Hydrant and Water Main Valve Inspections and Maintenance

Safety Coupling Print E-mail

As you can see by the picture, the safety coupling connects the upper stem and the lower stem together.  This is an important component of the fire hydrant mechanism.  Without the safety coupling, the hydrant is not operable. 

In combination with a proper safety flange, the safety coupling is meant to prevent extensive damage to the expensive components of the fire hydrant if it is struck by a vehicle.

In Ottawa, snow banks can build up quite high and if a fire hydrant marker is not present, snow plows may not be aware of the hydrant location and could knock it off the barrel pipe quite easily.  To help prevent this from happening we supply and install fire hydrant markers.

If any of your hydrants do not have any markers, please contact us and we'll send you a quick quote to install one.
