Hydrostatic 5-Year Testing as according to nyc.gov is performed to expose possible leaks in the system and thereby uncover any defective materials that have missed prior detection. Hydrostatic testing validates the integrity of the constructed system to ensure its operation at the design code mandated pressures.
The Hydrostatic 5- Year test checks that the existing piping has been assembled properly and that there aren’t any leaks. It also checks that the fire department connection can uphold the highest pressure that the system will likely experience. In order to avoid fine from the fire department, commercial buildings should make sure the Hydrostatic 5-Year Test is up to date. Visit our plumbing page for more information on our services.
