FAQs
How do you perform an air pressure test on pipes?

Air pressure tests use pressurized air to quickly test for leaks in connected pipe systems. After capping or closing off all open ends, casing hoses or lines, connect an air compressor and your testing device to the pipe and monitor the gauge for changes. If the gauge changes after 15 minutes, you may have a leak.

Can you air test PVC?

For safety reasons, it is recommended that you never test PVC or plastic pipes with air, as it is dangerous and inaccurate. Instead, PVC pipe pressure should be tested with water. Need more help? Contact our trench safety experts for further guidance.
