Smoke & Dye Testing Services in Tasmania

Smoke testing is a method used to find stormwater infiltration into the sewerage system.

The test consists of blowing non-hazardous smoke into sewer manholes and observing the points where the smoke emits. The smoke may exit from manholes, sewer vents on houses, down pipes or through the ground.

The smoke should not enter your house if it is plumbed to code as your toilet, sink and basin etc should have a water trap to prevent this.

Smoke testing is a simple and fast method of testing the sewer system. The vapour is harmless and will disappear after only a few minutes. In conjunction with dye testing this is a cost-effective way to identify areas of the sewer system that need repairs or improvement.
