|In response to Re: Test a mixing valve|
During testing, we seldom drain the air out of the system. Air will leak faster than water so it is a better indicator of a leak.
: Ok thanks. So the potential air pressure in the line is ok?
: : : We are remodeling our second floor bathroom and I just installed the shower mixing valve. I wanted to test all my joints before I put the walls up. I do not have the trim/handle for the valve yet(on order) so I would need to open the valve (gently) with a pair of pliers to let the air escape - then close the valve after the air leaves the line? Is that the correct way to test? Am I correct to assume that I cannot just turn the water on (the line is currently shutoff in the basement)? Thanks for the advice.
