When Is Sewer Smoke Testing Needed?
Sewer smoke testing is effective at locating areas of your sewer system that may have been infiltrated or compromised. During smoke testing, our experts will be able to pinpoint points of entry that could lead to the influx of sewer water during extreme weather conditions.
Smoke testing can also locate leaks in properties that may be more prone to sewer leakages such as those with basement drains or sump pumps. Smoke testing can also locate points of groundwater infiltration into your home’s water supply and locate any cross-connections between sanitary sewers and storm drains.
How Sewer Smoke Testing Works?
Smoke testing has been an effective method in the U.S. for over four decades. The process is a fairly simple one and involves blowing smoke mixed with air into the sewer line induced through the utility hole. This smoke then travels to the site that allows surface water to flow. The smoke will be able to locate broken utility holes, improper connections, uncapped lines, and cracked mains and laterals.
As long as smoke is able to permeate through, that means sewer gas is able to get through as well which would explain the unpleasant smells you are experiencing.
Benefits of Smoke Testing
Smoke testing has been the most effective way to locate potential sewer line breaches for over 40 years, and for good reason. Some of the benefits you can expect to reap wit this service include:
- Simple Process: Sewer smoke testing is extremely simple and to-the-point. There are virtually no other methods that are as effective as simply using smoke to detect gaps and openings in your home’s sewer system.
- Fast: What’s faster than inserting smoke and waiting for it to reappear? Once breaches are located, our specialists will be able to move forward with the best course of action for treatment and repair, sometimes requiring an entire sewer line replacement.
- Safe: Thankfully, the smoke that is used during sewer smoke testing services is safe and non-toxic. This smoke is also inflammable and won’t cause any negative impacts on your home, pets, or health.
