install a 10' head, at the upper most terminal get a ladder and a bucket of water. they dont want to hear excuses, they want to see water i have had to fill rough ins up via a 5 gallon bucket, toted water a mile to do it. [in a truck] I test under upc. 5 psi air, on a 10 pound gage with a set dial.
