Pressure Test for Underfloor Heating

UFH involves the installation of water pipes and fittings. It is important to carry out pressure test before running the system. This is to ensure there is no leakage throughout the system and thus it could operate effectively after installation.

By carrying our pressure test, we could...

  • Avoid leakages during operation
  • Save costs
  • Save the time spent on maintenance
  • Procedures to Pressure Test

    Normally pressure test are carried out during the installation process.

  • First, pipes, manifolds and overlay systems are installed.
  • Then, the pipes and the manifolds are pressurised (using the Pressure Testing pump) and let it stay for overnight.
  • On the next day, check pressure reading on the pressure gauge to see if the readings have changed.
  • If reading hasn't changed, that means that there is no leakages throughout the water pipe system. You can then proceed with the rest of installation. (screed and finishing floor)
  • If reading on the pressure gauge have dropped significantly, it implies that there are leakages throughout the water pipe systems. Leakages could be on any location on pipes, fittings, manifolds. It could be caused by loose fittings or defective pipes, etc. If it is caused by Loose fitting, it has to be fixed before proceed with the next step. If it is caused by defective pipe, it has to be replaced.
  • After pipe or fittings replacement, carry out the pressure test again until you get a stable pressure reading.

    To carry out Pressure Test for UFH system, you would require a Pressure Test Pump. This could be purchased through our website. Please click the link above.

  • UFH System Operation Pressure is 3 bar. Testing Pressure is recommend to be 4 bar.
  • Never exceed the max testing pressure 10 bar otherwise you will break the UFH system!
  • For detailed Pressure Testing instructions please refer to the User Manual.
