SFE Global offers smoke testing, an extremely tangible process in which storm water cross connections are visual immediately upon testing. Although the concept is simple, it takes careful planning and an experienced firm in order to implement a successful smoke testing program.
Safe, non-toxic smoke is generated and blown into sanitary sewer systems under very low pressure. The smoke will enter the sanitary system as well as cross connected storm water sources such as roof leaders and perimeter drains.
The result is a visual confirmation of smoke in a storm water system, evidence that rain water has been entering the sanitary sewer system.
Please contact SFE Global for more information on smoke testing and how we can help you achieve a reduction of inflow and infiltration.
