Plumbing Installation – Episode 3

Trench Drain Dreams

Holes dug in the floor and pipe found, the brewery crew went to bed happy and dreamed of glorious trench drains that would be installed in the coming days. Low and behold, a few days later, their dreams came true.

The final step before filling in the dirt and cementing everything back up is pressure testing the drains. This is done to ensure the strength of the piping so they don’t burst or start to leak underground. Ideally an underground leak would create some sort of cavern below the brewery, accessed only by a hidden trap door in the floor, to store and age beer in like the days of old – but in reality it’d just create a large sinkhole and swallow our brewery whole. So we went ahead with the pressure test.
