THANK YOU  for your trust and making us the # 1 choice for quality hose testing on Long Island and Southern Westchester!

Waterway has quickly become the premier fire hose testing service on Long Island and southern Westchester.  We invite you to browse our  website and learn more by clicking on the "About Us" page.  The difference between us and others is the personal service you receive.  We are all local firefighters you see and work with every day, we do not employ commissioned salespeople or laborers who have no interest in the fire service. We are extremely proud of the quality work that we perform and realize how important it is to have your hose tested properly and do not cut any corners. We welcome any comments or questions on our contact page.  

All you need to do is supply the hose, location, water supply and we do everything else.

Waterway is the only ISO-9001 accredited hose testing company in the USA. Our equipment, test procedures, and record documentation has been reviewed and certified by a 3rd party, so you know you are getting a proper, professional job.  Over the last 20 years we have tested over 70,000,000' of hose. Conscientious, trained employees complete your annual hose test requirement to NFPA standards without any potential damage to your apparatus or injury to firefighters. Your hose test records are always available online 24/7 through secure password-protected access. Click on "The Process" for detailed information about what we do .

Not all hose test companies are the same. We pride ourselves on our conscientious customer service.  We sweep out the hosebeds, tighten the dividers and will move them if requested. We will provide customized reports at no additional charge and delivered to your desk in a week. We invite you to view our site and of course if you have any questions please give us a call.

We have become the trusted source for quality hose testing on Long Island. We test not only for local fire departments, but also equipment distributors use our testing services after routine repairs, and  manufacturers of hose have hired us for warranty testing. They trust Waterway to perform the testing to the highest standard for their product and service reputation. Our best advertising is our 100% satisfied customers.  Upon request, we will provide our entire customer list, not just hand-picked references. We encourage you to contact any of them before choosing a company to trust to perform your hose testing.

Thank you for taking the time to view our website.  We welcome any and all comments and questions.





We can now provide field repairs of LDH hose. No need to send hose out and wait for it to be repaired and re-tested. Upon authorization, if a length fails testing, in most cases the length can be repaired by removing the defective section and re-attaching coupling according to manufacturers specs. The hose is then retested and placed back in service immediately! We also carry new replacement couplings if needed. Contact us for more info.


Will your hard suction work when you really need it? We now provide the NFPA required dry-vacuum testing of hard suction hose. Contact us for more infomation and a free estimate.


Powerpoint presentation now available for Commissioners / Chiefs / Officers / Village Officials to show why it is beneficial to have Waterway test your hose

Call us to schedule before the testing season begins.
