• Sewer odors – Smoke tests locate where sewer odors are emanating from by identifying holes/cracks, disconnected lines, uncapped pipes, evaporated traps, and more…with smoke escaping any compromised areas.

• Pests – Locate difficult to find drain system rodent/insect “highways” in order to properly repair to prevent/stop pests from entering the home from the drain system.

• Unidentifiable compromises – when unable to identify any specific, visible compromises within the drain system above slab during the drain camera inspection.

How do you prepare for a smoke test?

If you happen to know where your main cleanout is located, then great! Otherwise, we will have to locate it or find an area within the system for a plumber to install one for you. It’s important that we have proper access to the main cleanout to isolate the system.

How does our inspection help you move forward? 

We diagnose, locate, and mark the areas for you with flags, tape, and/or spray paint. We find the compromises within the system and the plumbing contractor of your choice will complete the repair work.
