Leaky Drain Smoke Test in Toronto
Our LiquiSmoke was put through a series of tests performed by respected laboratories. These tests resulted in showing that not only is our LiquiSmoke safe, but it will not stain or leave a residue when used to find a leaking drain pipe under house. This gives you peace of mind knowing you’re working with a non-toxic smoke, and you don’t need to be concerned with it leaving a mess in your home.
Our drain smoke test forces non-toxic artificially created smoke through waste and drain pipes under a slight pressure to find leaks. Plumes of the nontoxic drain smoke form around the defects that cause drain pipe leaks. This test can be performed when the plumbing is brand new, but more often it is used to find sewer gas leaks that may plague a building or an area. Any sign of smoke escaping can be considered a possible site for sewer gas to escape. Sewer gas typically has a rotten egg smell and can contain methane gas, which is explosive, or hydrogen sulphide gas, which is deadly.
A drain smoke test is particularly useful in places, such as ventilated sanitary sewer systems, where completely sealing the system is not practical. The test can also be performed in a home to safely and quickly find and repair leaking drain pipes.
