ANNUAL PRESSURE TESTING

Dry Riser Testing entails connecting the inlet to a pump and water supply. The system is then completely charged with water to a pressure of 12 bar measured at the inlet for a period of at least 15 minutes. During this period an inspection is made to ensure that there is no leakage of water at any of the joints or landing valves. Once the pressure test is completed the system must be drained so that it is left ready for immediate use. In the event of system failure due to inability to hold pressure for the recommended 15 minutes at 12 bar (at the inlet), Investigation will then be carried out to establish why the system lost pressure, once this has been completed a full report will be issued to the client. If Remedial works are then required we will set about this task in a timely and professional manner & once complete we will then carry out a further pressure test and issue a Certificate of compliance.
