A hydrotest is also known as a hydrostatic test and is a way of checking the condition of pressure vessels like gas cylinders and storage tanks. We perform hydrotests to check details like strength, pressure tightness, and possible leakages. The process is excellent ay, ensuring you have a sustainable setup for a safe human operation that deters risks of explosions.
Process of performing a hydrotest
We pass water through pipelines and other vessels to inspect leaks. The water offers an accurate option to understand the pressure metrics of the pipeline. The standard way is to shut down the valve to induce water at the proper pressure. The method allows adequate installation and management of gas compressors across long distances. Some critical factors include the following:
- Present flaws in the material
- Problems with the mechanical aspects of the pipe
- Corrosion elements in the system
- Presence of hardness on the inner surface due to contact with hydrogen

Signs you need Edmonton construction hydrotests
Hydrotests determine how the leak and crack affect the foundation. It is best to perform the tests before starting a construction project with pipelines and other affected features. Older homes in the process of renovation construction are a particular candidate for hydrostatic tests. Here are other signs you need a hydrotest in a commercial or residential construction project:
- Damp of discolored floors or carpets
- High water bills
- Sudden loss of pressure in the water
- Cracks in walls, floors, and foundations
- Changes in the water meter
- A drastic drop in water levels in the swimming pool
