Smoke Testing a Sewer Line at a Decatur, Georgia Rat Control Job

Smoke-testing pipes at a Decatur rat control job

Rats often get into homes and other buildings through breaks in the sewer pipes, but it's not always easy to find the holes. Smoke testing is one of the ways we do it.

Basically, we pump smoke into the pipe and see where it comes out. Ideally, no smoke should get into the building itself. It should all blow out the vent. If it does get into the building, then there's a break in the pipe somewhere.
