How is smoke used for leak detection?

Smoke testing is a non-invasive technique used to identify leaks in your plumbing system. A certified plumber introduces a harmless, scented smoke into your pipes. This smoke escapes through any cracks, holes, or defects in the system, visually indicating the location of the leak.


Here are some key benefits of using smoke testing for leak detection:

  • Accuracy: Smoke testing provides a highly accurate way to locate leaks, even those hidden behind walls or underground.
  • Non-invasive: Unlike some leak detection methods, smoke testing doesn't require any digging or destruction of your property.
  • Cost-effective: Early detection of leaks through smoke testing can save you money on extensive repairs caused by undetected leaks.
  • Safe: The smoke used in testing is non-toxic and harmless to people, pets, and plants.
  • Fast Results: Smoke testing allows for a quick and efficient leak detection process, minimizing disruption to your home.

Signs You Might Need Smoke Testing

If you're experiencing any of the following in your Columbus home, it might be a sign of a hidden leak:

  • Unexplained Increase in Water Bills: A sudden rise in your water bill could indicate a leak somewhere in your plumbing system.
  • The Sound of Running Water When No Faucets Are On: If you hear the constant trickle or whoosh of water even when no taps are running, it suggests a leak.
  • Cracks in Walls or Ceilings: Leaks can cause cracks to develop in walls and ceilings due to water damage.
  • Mold Growth: Mold thrives in damp environments. Leaks can create moisture pockets that promote mold growth.
  • Soft Spots on Floors: Water damage from leaks can weaken floorboards, creating soft spots underfoot.
