Re: Load Testing

Barrels filled with water is the best way to go.  However, this may not be
feasible if the water could cause damage to the floors below, is not readily
available or cannot be drained away easily.  Sandbags or lead shot provide
another (less messy) way to load the structure......

Either way, be sure to provide shoring for safety!!!!!!
