Plumbing issues can be tricky to diagnose, especially when they are hidden behind walls or underground. Traditional diagnostic methods can be invasive, time-consuming, and expensive. However, with the advent of smoke testing, plumbing diagnosis has never been easier. Wade's Plumbing & Septic is proud to offer this revolutionary diagnostic method to our clients, allowing us to quickly identify and fix any plumbing issues.
2. What are Smoke Tests?
A smoke test is a diagnostic method used by plumbers to identify plumbing issues in pipes, sewer lines, and drainage systems. During a smoke test, a non-toxic, harmless smoke is pumped into the plumbing system. The smoke will then escape through any leaks, breaks, or other openings in the plumbing system, revealing the location and nature of the problem.
3. How do Smoke Tests Work?
Smoke testing works by pressurizing the plumbing system with a special machine that pushes smoke through the pipes. The non-toxic smoke will then escape through any leaks, breaks, or other openings in the plumbing system. This smoke will allow our technicians to identify any plumbing problems quickly and easily, without having to cut into walls, dig up the ground, or perform invasive procedures.
4. Benefits of Smoke Tests
Smoke testing has several advantages over traditional diagnostic methods, including:
- Quick and non-invasive method
- Can detect even the smallest leaks and breaks
- No need to cut into walls or dig up the ground
- Non-toxic, harmless smoke used

5. Types of Plumbing Problems Detected by Smoke Tests

- Leaking pipes and joints
- Faulty connections and fittings
