Hello,  … Once full, I’d cap off hot and cold lines and then put pressure on it and let it sit for a day to see if there is ANY evidence of leaks.  It would be good if the line pressure is high, around 80 psi, as that would test the strength of the tank, but if there is a leak, 40-60 psi will find it.

Hmmm, I hope this isn’t a dumb question but how to put pressure on it?
