And there is no better place to avail the best water bag proof load testing than Holloway.

Why Choose for Water Bag Proof Load Testing Over the Traditional Testing?

Easy to Transport

You can simply roll up and pack the empty water weight bags. They are made from lightweight, pliable fabric, making it easier to roll up and transport them to the rigging and lifting site. You can use pick-up trucks and small commercial trailers to transport water weight bags. It’s easy and cost-effective.

Prevent Shock Loading

Shock loading can be a huge concern when using solid weights for proof load testing. It can result in a significant loss of strength or durability of a wire rope. With water weight bags, test loads get added gradually. This helps you identify the hoisting/ braking capability of equipment.

Infinite Number of Test Loads

With water weight bags, you can add a virtually unlimited number of test loads. All you have to do is alter the weight using water meters or force dynamometers. This allows you to add accurate test loads and inspect your equipment thoroughly.

No Need to Lower the Test Load

Another advantage is that you don’t need to lower the test load. You can drain the water from the test bags. This can be useful when proof testing in hazardous areas.


The water bag load test is a trusted and reliable way of measuring the strength and durability of your lifting and rigging hardware. Many leading companies, including organizations like OSHA, trust this proof load testing method.
