Rainwater Outlet Testing

RAM’s Rainwater Outlet Testing is predominantly used during a Dynamic Leak Investigation (DLI®) process .


A rainwater outlet may become defective at a combination of three stages. That’s why we utilise a three stage Rainwater Outlet Test where possible – isolating and testing the three potential weak points; the rainwater pipework; the connection to the spigot; and the interface between the rainwater outlet and the waterproofing membrane. A test with RAM will include:


3 Stage Test Method:

  • STEP 1: Analyses the neck of the rainwater outlet
  • STEP 2: Adjusting the hose to a wide-angle spray
  • STEP 3: Outlet is bunded above the spigot to submerge
