Odor Control with Smoke Testing
Smoke testing is a process that is periodically performed as a part of an ongoing sanitary sewer inspection program. It is often utilized as an alternate means of leak detection and as a method of ongoing sewer maintenance. During a smoke test, slightly pressurized smoke is pushed through plumbing sewer runs to detect clogged sewer pipes or other plumbing issues. The smoke used for the plumbing smoke test is an odorless, colorless, non-toxic smoke that quickly dissipates once the test has been performed.
Smoke testing forces air that is filled with smoke in a sanitary sewer line. Locating the areas of concern can be quiet simple with smoke testing as the smoke quickly penetrates through any opening or leak in the plumbing system where it can be seen by a Brewer Commercial Services plumbing technician. Smoke tests are effective, no matter the soil type, surface type or the depth of the lines tested.
Efficient and cost effective, smoke testing has become a world-wide standard for finding leaks in sewer and plumbing systems. It is also the most cost effective and efficient way to find out areas of concern within a plumbing system.
