Sewer Smoke Testing in Northford, Connecticut

Sewer and drain smoke testing for leak detection or sources of odor is a plumbing method where smoke is sent through your drain pipes and sewage systems. This smoke then travels throughout those pipes and wherever there are cracks or issues in these pipes, smoke will spew out. This non-invasive, inexpensive method reveals issues in your plumbing where there can be leaks, cracks, loose fittings, and other plumbing issues.

How Does Smoke Testing Work?

A harmless, non-toxic smoke is pushed through the plumbing system with just enough force to overcome atmospheric pressure. This allows the smoke to then escape from any crack, break, or other openings in your system. The test doesn’t take long to conduct and is less labor-intensive than other available methods. Plumbers look for smoke exiting in unexpected locations to identify the source of your problem.

  • Manny and his team showed up within 45 mins after placing a call. They tried to locate my septic tank but needed to return the next morning with larger equipment, they found my tank after digging and determine it had failed(over 60 years old). We agreed on a price to hook up to Sewers once CBYD and permits were done work
