Hydrostatic Pressure Testing | H2O Comply

A Guide to Hydrostatic Pressure Testing

Your water system is a crucial part of your daily life and maintaining its health is of utmost importance.

Whether you’re installing a new system or making modifications to an existing one, hydrostatic pressure testing is a must. It not only ensures that your system is functioning optimally but also saves you from potential damage and costly repairs in the future.

What is Hydrostatic Pressure Testing?

Before your new water system is connected to the provider’s main pipe, you’re required to provide hydrostatic pressure testing certificates with a full data log and analysis. Once the new system is installed, we can check the integrity of this system, and check that there aren’t any structural issues like leaks or loose fittings that could cause any further problems.

What Tests Are Conducted?

Leak testing

eak testing is a critical step in ensuring the safety and reliability of a water system. It is a process used to detect any leaks, loose fittings, or other structural issues that could cause harm to the system or the environment. During leak testing, dyed water is used to guide the water through the system, so any problematic areas can be easily identified.

The use of dyed water allows our team of experts to quickly and effectively detect any leaks or other issues that need to be addressed. Leak testing is a non-invasive and effective method of ensuring the integrity of your water system, helping to minimize the risk of leaks or other issues that could cause damage or pose health risks.

Pressure testing

To test the pressure in a water system, we conduct a simple pressure test by turning off the supply valve. This allows us to monitor any pressure loss and determine if the system is pressurized tightly enough. The purpose of this test is to ensure that the system can withstand normal operating pressure without any leaks or other issues.

Overall strength

We check for deformities in the container to ensure its overall strength and stability. Deformities can come in many forms, such as cracks, warps, or other structural anomalies. These deformities can weaken the container and make it more susceptible to damage or failure over time. By conducting a thorough inspection of the container, we can identify any deformities and take action to repair or replace the affected parts, ensuring that your water system remains strong and safe for use.

Why is Hydrostatic Pressure Testing Important?

Water systems are costly to build and can pose serious health risks. This means that they can cause a large amount of damage if they fail to be set up correctly, or are not maintained well enough. In light of these issues, an important part of our plumbing services is to ensure that your water system is efficient and healthy.

It’s also important that follow-up tests are scheduled at regular intervals. Usually, this should be every 5 years. However, there’s no harm in doing these tests a bit more regularly because of the potential costs involved if something does go wrong.
