We get the right test done the first time. We average a turnaround time of less than 4 days for mains testing and 5 days for commissioning data (Form 71). Our technicians are RPEQ qualified and have a comprehensive understanding of the hydrant design standards and fluid dynamics.

Partnering with HTC gives you the information to design, and commission world class hydrant solutions.

Testimonials

We recently used Dan and his team at HTC to assess the flow rates to our hydrants and found both his service and professionalism to be of the highest standard. The report generated was thorough for our requirements and was explained to us in terms that you don’t need to be an engineer to understand. Excellent work!

GIVING BACK

Working with the Shantipara Association for Education, HTC donates a small percentage of our profits to children in the remote town of Satkhira, Chittagong District in Bangladesh. Donations have contributed to books, bags and stationary to help increase the level of education in this regional location. The intent is to support people that value resources that we in Australia, take for granted.

The Shantipara Association for Education was established in 2009 and their first target was for "no child to miss Primary School (grade 1 to 5)”. That goal has now been achieved and 100% of the children in the area are completing Primary School. More exciting is that four students have graduated from college and two have returned to help teach the students.
