Hydrostatic Testing

The Premier Choice For Hydrostatic Pressure Testing in Sydney

Boost and Flow Testing is a leading Sydney-based company that provides comprehensive hydrostatic testing and pressure testing services for various industries & property types. 

Hydrostatic pressure testing involves filling your existing piping system with water and pressurising it to ensure that it can withstand the designated pressure that would be applied during firefighting operations, without any leaks, cracks or ruptures.

You can rely on our technicians to perform pressure tests on your fire system, hydrant booster pumps, and street water mains to ensure that the water flow rate and pressure meet the standards. We have a current Hydrant Metered Standpipe Permit from Sydney Water to conduct these tests. As a result of corrosion or changes to the surrounding infrastructure, the boost pressure requirements may have changed since the system was initially commissioned. Take the first step towards peace of mind by scheduling your pressure test with us today!

Street Water Main Testing Service

Determining the flow rates and pressure of the street water main is essential in accurately sizing fire hydrants and pumps during the design phase. It also helps identify potential blockages or restrictions for fire protection companies, building developers, and fire design teams, ensuring they are aware of the available flow and pressure at the time of the test.

We have a current Metered Standpipe Permit and are fully equipped to provide you with accurate street water main pressure & flow rate measurements and can even graph the results to highlight any inconsistencies or restrictions. Ensure your fire protection system is up to standard – contact us today to schedule your street mains water pressure test.
