When rancid odors occur in a plumbing system, and the source is difficult to locate, a smoke test is typically used to detect the source of the leak causing the odor. This smoke test method of locating leaks is used in both residential plumbing situations. It is when a non-toxic, unscented smoke is forced into the sewer system in a controlled method through a predetermined entrance point. When the smoke arrives at the break in the pipe, it escapes, allowing us to pin point where the sewer gasses are entering the building. After this is determined, it’s just about fixing the leak.
