There’s nothing quite like the smell of rotten eggs. And when you smell it in your home, it usually signifies a problem with your drainage system allowing sewer gas to escape. Not only does it smell bad, but it’s embarrassing, and needs to be fixed quickly. That’s when you need the experts here at Wyman Plumbing to perform a Sewer Smoke Test.
The best plan is to locate the source of the problem. Breathing these fumes for an extended period of time is unhealthy. The best way to do this is through a smoke test. A smoke test is odorless and non-toxic making it safe for both humans and pets. Sometimes the cause of the problem can be as simple as a seal on a toilet, other times it is more complicated such as a crack in the sewer vent stack or the sewer itself. We use a smoke test to detect the source of the leak.
When we put the smoke into the plumbing system, the pipes will fill with smoke, and almost instantly you’ll see it coming out of the ventilation stacks, drains and manholes. If there are no leaks or breaks within the plumbing system, you shouldn’t see smoke anywhere else. If we do see smoke elsewhere, we’ve located the problem. This is such an effective tool, it allows us to quickly and efficiently locate the source of the problem without tearing apart walls, or landscaping while searching for the source of the problem.
