  • Looking to purchase a hydrostatic test pump

    From what I've seen online, 300 psi is about the right size. Any suggestions?

    The Wheeler is what we use. It's durable but not great for larger systems.

      This is the 1 that I have.

      Hydrostatic Test Pump Compatible with Rothenberger RP50 | eBay

      Used it last week to test a ss washing machine hose. 850# and it held

      Big systems ive used my jetter and a set of gauges with a shut off and quick acting spray gun.

      Important to bleed all the air from the system first to get a steady reading.

        You can use a regular pressure washer.
        Buy cheap, buy twice.

          Thanks, but I'm looking for a stand alone purpose build unit for testing whole systems, that an idiot can use without screwing the pooch. My plumbers can sometimes be all thumbs. I'm assuming I'll need something with at least a 1/3 hp motor.

            Wheeler rex has a good assortment. Check ebay for a deal.

              I have a wheeler Rex for years. Able to pressurize big systems. You can use a bucket of clean water to draw from if no additional source of water is available.
