Pressure Testing

There are several ways to pressure test plumbing lines. Call the reliable plumbers at Douglas E. Wilson Plumbing when you need a professional to conduct your plumbing pressure test. We’ll use the best method to pressure test the health of your indoor plumbing lines and thoroughly explain the results of our findings. Below, please find one of our most common ways to pressure test lines.

Using pressurized air to fill plumbing pipes is a fast and effective way to check for leaks in your plumbing system. First, we’ll turn off the main water line, drain any existing water lingering in the plumbing system, and make sure all the faucets are turned off. Second, we’ll attach a pressure gauge to one of the faucets, usually one with a threaded spout like an outdoor faucet or bib. We’ll check your plumbing lines for leaks by pressurizing the lines with air to about 60 psi to simulate the water pressure found in most homes and wait about 15 minutes. By monitoring the pressure with a pressure gauge, we can determine if the pressure has dropped which indicates a leak.
