Water Testing, London

Aug 24, 2021

Location: Nile Street, London

Client: Permasteelisa

Project: UKAS Accredited CWCT Hose Test.

Our trained team of LFT technicians had an interesting job rigging from the 26th floor and completing a CWCT hose test to levels 17,18,19,20 and 21 via rope access.

Hose testing is intended for the testing of permanently sealed joints. The high-pressure water spray should not dislodge gaskets or wet-applied sealants unless they have been poorly installed or not been allowed to cure. Water will be forced through small gaps in these types of seal and will find its way through unsealed joints between framing components.
