Reply To: Here's what happens during a "hydro" test
Very interesting. I wonder if taking the tank up to 7500 psi has any negative impact on the integrity of the tank? I mean, does that lessen the life-span of the tank. Maybe that’s why they only have a 15-yr life span – enough to do two hydro tests – one at 5 years of age and the second at 10 years of age – no third one, because the tank is “dead”.
I’d think a tank was more likely to fail the 2nd hydro. Just wondering.
