Air Pressure Testing Drainage/Sewage Pipework

Air Pressure testing is recommended to ensure environmental legislation and standards are complied with. This test ensures that all pipework is fully functioning

CES Environmental provides Air  testing which helps to:

  • To check the integrity of joints and connections
  • No cross contamination between foul sewage and storm water drainage systems
  • Ensuring no effluent fluid from within the system are escaping into surrounding area

Air Pressure Testing Process

  • All connection within the pipework will have a bung placed within by our engineer
  • A manometer is placed in the last bung to measure the pressure within the pipe
  • The line is then pressurised using our compressor until the test pressure is achieved
  • This pressure is allowed to stabilize
  • The test results are then noted on our software which will then produce a PDF report
  • Once the test is completed all equipment is removed from the pipework

Our Engineer will review of the Air Pressure testing report on completion with recommendations. CES can provide a CCTV survey of the Pipe works where they have not passed the test. The CCTV Survey will highlight exactly where the faults are in the lines. These can be anything from displaced joints, cracks, growths, etc.

On completion of the CCTV survey we will provide our client with a DVD of the footage. And a comprehensive report showing issues with the pipework and giving recommendations to rectify issues.

CES Environmental is continually investing in our training and equipment. This ensures our Clients are getting the most accurate information possible using the latest technology.
