AIR TESTING ServiceSPECIALIST AIR TESTING SERVICES IN SCOTLAND
We can help you ensure that your pipework is compliant, saving you time, headaches and money.
A drain pipe test ensures the pipe is sufficiently watertight. This prevents the pipe from leakin gits contents into the surrounding soil, and potentially overloading or contaminating the local water table.
When laying new pipes, it is essential to test them before the trenches in which they are laid are backfilled with soil as this saves you a lot of time and effort in digging them back up again should they fail.
If a pipe passes the air test, it will be watertight as well as airtight. Water, being a large molecule, requires larger gaps to pass through than air, so anything airtight will automatically be able to hold water. It is therefore quicker and easier to run the air test to check each sectiono f pipe rather than using the water test each time.
Utilising specialist equipment, UMS have the capacity to air test main line sewers, individual houses and large commercial buildings.
