Left Tank Pressure Testing

Pressure testing left tank

So I decided to use the manometer method to test the tanks for leaks. Word of warning, this method is dang sensitive. Slight temperature and pressure changes throughout the day can have you chasing your tail and creating false alarms. I see the wisdom in balloon method…as it gives a good indication of success without giving the builder a scare if he’s an over thinker. The other way is to make sure you have an accurate means of measuring all the other factors at the same time as looking at the column of water. It’s repetitive math, but it can give you a dang accurate look at your success.

Column of water is showing stable pressure

As it stands, my column of water shows a leak free tank after 4 days since starting the experiment. 1 down, 1 to go.
