Sewer & Foul Odor Detection
Pipe Surgeons is not only versed in fixing plumbing systems, but also eliminating foul odors that may permeate from within these systems. Not only is the smell unpleasant, but they can contain dangerous gases and chemicals that can create a hazardous environment to live in. Using advanced smoke testing techniques, Pipe Surgeons will be able to pinpoint where the odor is coming from and eliminate it.
Our Foul Order Detection Process:
A camera inspection is conducted to ensure that there are no other complications within the pipes.
Large downdraft fans are placed over open manholes at either end of the sewer line in question, while the rest of the lines are blocked to assist in finding the source of the leak.
Non-hazardous smoke is generated, either by detonating a harmless smoke bomb or by pouring liquid smoke down the sewer line, and the fans will blow it into the line.
If the pipes are leaking, plumes of smoke will escape the sewer lines through the leak sites.
The leak sites are denoted with small flags or markers, which will determine which sections of the pipe will require replacement or repair.
At Pipe Surgeons, we place the safety of our customers above all else. If your pipes are leaking, seek us out for all of your repair needs. We will work quickly to find the problem and come up with the best solution.
What is Sewer Gas and Why Does it Smell So Bad
Sewer gas is a mixture of different gases composed of compounds made of hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen, and hydrogen. Prolonged exposure to these gases can be harmful to your respiratory system, but generally, these sewer gas odors are not harmful to occupants but can greatly disrupt your lifestyle and cause great discomfort. Most of the ingredients of sewer gas are odorless except for hydrogen sulfide and ammonia. These are the key causes for the bad smell you may be experiencing.
