The process involves using artificial non-toxic smoke, which is pushed through the pipes. If there are defects present, smoke will come out from the ground, indicating areas of weakness within the sewer line. Smoke testing is an efficient and cost-effective way to detect faults in the overall sewer system.
Smoke testing can help determine if:
  • Pipes, connections and seals are damaged, improperly installed, or have missing components.
  • Traps are defective, improperly installed, or missing.
  • Vents are inadequate or defective.

If there are defects, improper installations, or missing parts, this can lead to serious problems down the road, including:

  • Structural damage to the foundation of your home, which can damage your floors.
  • Higher water bills because unrepaired leaks lead to water waste, which is also devastating for the environment.
  • Extensive wall damage caused by cracked pipes.
  • Mildew growing in the home’s foundation and wall because moisture from cracked pipes create a perfect environment for mildew to thrive.
