There are many ways to inspect a sewer line, but the most efficient and cost-effective way is often smoke testing.
Smoke testing involves pumping smoke through your pipes under light pressure. In this case, “where there’s smoke, there’s a leak”, or an opening for water to enter the system. This method requires relatively little setup and can test the whole system’s efficiency under normal working conditions.
The smoke is non-toxic and non-hazardous, leaves no stains, and has no negative effect on plants or animals.
The smoke should not enter your premises, but if it does it will have a distinct odor that should only last a few minutes with proper ventilation. To get your sewer line smoke tested, start and schedule a same-day appointment anywhere in the Kansas City regional area.
