    Default Scott SCBA Flow Test

    We are going to have our SCott SCBA worked on per their bulletin on the HUDS wiring. Our rep said the work will be done a not charge, but will have to flow test the packs and that will not be covered. How often are they suppose to be flow tested, and if they are only being flow tested due to being worked on I think they should pay for it?

    Stay Safe,

    I'm pretty sure the flow test is required every two years and to maintain warranty compliance this may be why they require it and won't pay?

    The US Navy flow tests the regulators and the primary reducer every 36 months.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.
