As of October 2018 it will become mandatory that all Sumps undergo an Integrity test to ensure they are water tight. Containment sumps are liquid tight structures designed to temporarily contain leaks or spills. In addition, containment sumps often serve as the leak detection monitoring location for double-walled piping systems. Leakage from the primary piping typically flows by gravity inside the secondary piping to the sump, where it can be easily observed or detected by a sensor.


Sump Testing – Hydrostatic Testing
  • Ensure all pipe penetrations are free from bedding or backfill material or any other obstruction
  • Fill the sump with fresh water to the highest point
  • Mark the water level inside the sump with a marker pen or chinagraph (wax) pencil
  • Examine the pipe entry seals for signs of leaking water
  • Leave water in sump for 1 hour
  • Check water level has not dropped — to properly finish testing
