Preparing Your Test Kit for Shipping

Prepare your test kit for shipping by removing all tools and test fittings that may be stored with your test kit, we will not need them to perform our tests. We will need your test gauge and hoses. Open all needle and bleed valves to drain water from your test kit prior to packing it; leave the valves open for shipping. If you have an electronic model, make sure the unit is turned off and include the charging adapters with your kit. If your test kit has a carrying case please place the test gauge inside for shipping, it will help protect it during the shipping process. Print and complete the online Test Kit Accuracy Check Request form (hyperlink here) and place it with your test kit.

Packaging for Shipment

If you will be shipping your test kit, we recommend a box that has a minimum of 6 inches around the kit for impact resistant packing material. It is important to use a quality packing box and packing materials to keep your kit safe during transit.

Services We Perform

Once we receive your test kit we will review the Test Kit Accuracy Check Request form. We will clean the case and test kit. We will pressure test all hoses, needle valves, and connections. If your hoses contain particle filters we will clean or replace the filter elements. We will accuracy check the gauge to ensure it conforms to the manufacturers specifications. If any of the parts in the test kit need repair, we will notify you with a description of the issue, recommendations for service or repair, and estimated costs. Your decision and authorization to perform work is needed before any repairs will be completed. You will receive a report of our findings from tests we performed when we received your test kit and after our work is completed.
