Similarly, it is asked, what is the minimum flow rate for a fire hydrant?
Additionally, what happens if you open a fire hydrant? Hydrants opened without spray caps pose a problem for the fire department because — since they release 1,000 gallons of water per minute — they can reduce water pressure at other hydrants in the event of a fire. You can get a fine up to $1,000, or go to jail for up to 30 days if you illegally open a fire hydrant.
In this regard, how do you open and close a fire hydrant?
Close the fire hydrant slowly and completely. To close the fire hydrant, use the pentagon shaped socket and turn clockwise. Close the fire hydrant's valve slowly and make sure that you close it completely.
