Default Pressure test boiler intake/exhaust?

I'm scabbing on an office to our house and replaced/moved the boiler in the process. During rough mechanical, inspector said that we would need to pressure test combustion air and flue piping for boiler per IRC. Can anyone give me a reference for this?

I've tested DWV stack at 5 psi before, but wasn't expecting a pressure test on intake/exhaust for boiler. I can hook it up, but trying to avoid any unnecessary work.

You only need a few water column of gas, this is the easiest route.

you must make sure the sphincter valve is strong enough for the test or you can permanently damage the boiler...

You will need to fill in an introduction, if not your posts will be locked or deleted and quite possibly your account too. :


Are you an employee, apprentice, journeyman, business owner?

Tell us if you had to go to trade school. How long?

How many hours or steps(1/2/3/4) before you become a journeyman?

What trade certificate do you have, plumbing, gas, oil, pipe fitter etc? How did you get them, exams, courses, or free in a cracker jack box?

What about your recent jobs, describe what you actually do and what type of building : houses, high rises, commercial building, institutional, oil refineries, paper mills etc.

Tell us about you, some funny plumbing jobs and or horror stories.
