Hydrostatic Plumbing Test

Here are a few common questions we get from customers:

When do I need a Hydrostatic Plumbing Test? Before any foundation work is performed.

Why is that?

This test will let you know if the plumbing is leaking before the work is done.

Right after foundation repair has been done.

Why after foundation repair?

Because the plumbing may have been damaged durring the process it's a good idea to have it done at that time as the tunnels have allready been dug and this will save you time and money.

This test is also a requirement by the City of Houston for new construction. A hydrostatic test is a way in which leaks can be found under pressure in pipelines and plumbing. The test involves placing water, which is often dyed for visibility, in the pipe or vessel at the required pressure to ensure that it will not leak or be damaged. It is the most common method employed for testing pipes.
