When time is of the essence, our 10-Minute pressure test is the ideal solution. This method is specifically designed for rehabilitated PE pipelines installed using trenchless techniques such as sliplining or pipe bursting.
It provides rapid and effective testing while maintaining high accuracy and safety standards. It is commonly used in situations where disruption to the water supply must be kept to a minimum, such as for water mains supplying residential areas. A specialist pump is used which can accurately maintain system test pressure (STP) whilst measuring the volumes of water added to the pipeline. This is used in conjunction with a visual inspection of the exposed joints. This method is only appropriate for pipelines up to 180mm in diameter and 200m in length.
