Below ground pipework testing is recognised as an essential part of site maintenance, to ensure certification and site records are maintained. Testing is recommended annually or bi-annually subject to the age of installation or site maintenance requirements. Certification protects you against potential fuel leaking and shows compliance to the latest DEFRA and PPG guidelines.
Our service team keep comprehensive records on all sites we attend and identify any below ground lines for testing. This can be included as part of a preventative maintenance schedule, as a separate annual inspection or as emergency investigation works if problems are suspected. We maintain test records for our customers and ensure reminders for retesting are given to keep the site up to full compliance.
Testing is carried out by our own experienced engineers, isolating each line and pressure testing with air to 10 psi. The test period is carried out for a minimum period of one hour with the line and pressures monitored throughout the duration of the test. Separate petrol line testing can also be included, with testing to the latest HS (G)41 standards.
