Leak Testing

Unread postAuthor: shud_b_rite » Sun Apr 15, 2007 9:36 pm

Often when I want to test for leaks quickly I blow on the end of the pipe (or whatever) to test for leaks. Sometimes if I blow too hard it feels like you have some air bubbles in your cheeks close to where your jaw hinge part is. It takes about 5 minutes for the funny feeling in your cheeks to go away.

I know this is a bit random but does anyone else get this too? Anyone know what is actually happening and is it bad for you to always do this?

In all probability you are backing air up into your salivary glands. They are little pinholes in essence.

Sounds like a dodgy way to check for leaks anyway.

Pump it up to a lowish pressure, drown it in something.

Pump up to full pressure and drown it again.

Sprays of soapy water are more worthwhile on larger cannons though :P

I know how to test for leaks properly. I just use this method as a quick way of testing.

Fill it with propane and hold a lighter over the whole thing!
