Ten Minute Pressure Test

Type Ten Pressure Test

The Ten Minute Test is devised for situations where a very short test time is required. It is suitable for testing polyethylene pipes often laid with the pipe-busting technique where water supply needs to be reconnected as quickly as possible.

Rather than measuring the pressure loss within the pipeline over a minimum of one  hour, the Ten Minute Test maintains the pressure for a ten minute duration.  

A specialist pump with a pre-set regulating valve adds the necessary amount of water to the pipeline to keep it at system test pressure. The amount of water added is recorded to indicate the pressure changes within the pipeline. The joints must also be visually inspected for leakage during the ten minute test period.
