Smoke Testing

Smoke testing helps identify leaks in a sewer system. Smoke is forced through the sewer line under pressure and fills the main line and connections. Smoke will follow leaks to the ground surface, revealing the location of the leak. Hydro-Klean is proud to be a leader in this increasingly required service.


Smoke testing is win-win-win. It’s accurate, incredibly cost-effective and perfectly harmless. The “smoke” isn’t really smoke, just visible mist that helps our service technicians identify where leaks and problems are in a sewer system. There’s no better way to make sure everything’s flowing the way it should.


Smoke testing is one of the fastest ways to identify leaks but in conjunction with Hydro-Klean’s sewer inspection services —which include digital video from inside the sewer—we offer comprehensive audits of your vital sewer systems.
