Hello. This is an Ontario Building Code matter because standpipe and fire hoses are required to be installed by OBC. Ontario Fire Code requires testing and maintenance of both, therefore here in Woodstock we refer building owners to the city’s chief building official to submit an alternative solution for approval. So far two newly constructed buildings have been successful in receiving such alternative solution approval with WFD input. Obviously the alternative solution was stamped by a professional engineer and has been accepted in other municipalities like London Ontario. I can email a copy of the alternative solution which spells out rationale behind permitting removal of hose to you as reference.
