Electric Hydrostatic Test Pumps

These electric hydrostatic test pumps are designed for pressure testing water systems such as water meters, plumbing lines, pressure vessels, solar systems and sprinkler systems, in both residential and commercial buildings. A standard 110/120V outlet is required and the electric motor is UL certified. The unit can be primed with a standard garden hose. Our choice would be "the very best" lightweight garden hose. The output pressure is easily adjusted simply by turning a knob and watching the attached gauge. A built-in bypass allows for automatic water recirculation once the set pressure is reached. When the test pump is turned off, it can be easily disconnected from the test system and taken elsewhere or stored away. The hose-to-pump connection features a quick disconnect with built-in check valve, which allows for convenient setup and portability.

Common Terms and Definitions
  • C, SWT, or Socket: A regular hub or socket. The pipe fits (sweats/solders) inside this
  • Mips: Male pipe threads on the outside of fitting
  • Fips: Female pipe threads on the inside of fitting
  • FTG: The same size as the pipe. Will fit inside a socket (hub) fitting
  • Hyset: Has a nailing flange on the front of the fitting
  • Dropear: Has a nailing flange on the back of the fitting
  • Nominal: Used to describe copper pipe and fittings in plumbing. Refers to the inside diameter of the pipe which varies by thickness of the pipe. The outside is a constant size and is always 1/8" larger than the nominal size. Example: 1/2" nominal is always 5/8" O.D.


Manual Hydrostatic Test Pumps

These manually operated hydrostatic test pumps are designed to test water meters, plumbing lines, pressure vessels, solar systems and sprinkler systems, in both residential and commercial buildings. The test pumps are portable and can be used to test modest irrigation lines. Pump operation requires the user to first fill the system that needs to be tested. Next, the user raises the system pressure by actuating the test pump handle. Finally, the user closes the pump's ball valve at the desired pressure. The user determines leakage based on dropping pressure as indicated by the hydrostatic test pump's pressure gauge. The pump has a relief valve that reduces the likelihood of over-pressuring the system. Hoses are sold separately.

Manual Hydrostatic Test Pump EHTP500
Features:
  • Portable and easy to use, great for those small jobs or add-ons
  • Relief valve located under the pressure gauge reduces the chance of over-pressurizing the system
  • Outlet hose quick-connection allows for fast setup
  • The inlet is standard 3/4" male hose thread for convenience
  • Hand powered, for testing at remote locations
  • 300 and 1000 PSI models available
  • Pressure hoses are sold separately

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "What are these hydrostatic pumps used for?"
A. These hydrostatic test pumps are used for pressure testing water systems such as water meters, plumbing lines, pressure vessels, solar systems and sprinkler systems, in both residential and commercial buildings.

Q. "Is hydrostatic pressure testing better than air testing?"
A. Hydrostatic pressure testing is much safer than air tests. You should never over pressurize your plumbing lines and should always follow the guidelines for pressure testing as conducted and approved by your local Code or administrative authority. Note: Never use pressurized air on PVC/CPVC as it can shatter.

Q. "What does PSI stand for?"
A. PSI = pounds per square inch.
