Careful Tank Testing Testing Process

Using too much pressure might also excalte any damage that’s already present in the fuel tank, leading to more expensive repairs. That’s something you want to avoid.

We usually test the boats with 3psi of pressure and that’s enough to let us know where the damage is.
