Air test old plumbing
I am buying a foreclosure and the property condition report states that the plumbing does not hold pressure. I want to air test the plumbing myself to determine if there is actually a problem. The pipe is copper. I have extensive experience in the construction/remodeling industry and now work in the natural gas industry, so ability is not an issue. Finding gas leaks is part of my job. I am looking for suggestions on what pressure to test at? Where to test (I am thinking the laundry connections)? I am also thinking that the problem is likely a bad valve... Thoughts?
