Are you wondering where the foul smell in your compound in Knoxville, TN, could be coming from? Well, then you should be worried about your sewer system in Knoxville, TN. It’s probably the highest time to call Knoxville Sewer Smoke Testing experts to help you identify your sewer systems problem. Luckily, Hero Services in Knoxville, TN, is ready to help you figure out what’s wrong with your sewer system in Knoxville and have it corrected before it becomes a disaster. All installations in our homes in Knoxville, TN, play a vital role. That’s why if any installation malfunctions in Knoxville, TN, the effects could be devastating. Starting from your roof, plumbing infrastructures, sewer system, all the way to chimneys, and electrical wirings. If any of these malfunctions, then you should act swiftly to identify the underlying issue and have it rectified before the problem escalates. Many are the times that homeowners in Knoxville give too much attention to their roof by conducting regular inspections to identify problems, conduct protective maintenance, and to evade expensive repairs. The same case should apply to sewer lines to ensure that they are in perfect condition and are working to the fullest. The most efficient way to identify some of these problems facing sewer lines is getting sewer smoke testing.

What is Sewer Smoke Testing?

Smoke testing is a reasonable and effective way of identifying the cause of an inflow or infiltration issue with your sewerage system in Knoxville, TN. It involves pushing smoke-filled air into a sewer system. The smoke under high pressure starts filling your sewer line and any other line connected to it. The smoke then follows the channel where there is a leakage and eventually finds its way out to the ground surface. We ensure that we exert enough pressure, which helps to overpower the atmospheric pressure, thus helping us locate all the possible leaks along your sewer line. For as long as all the gateways are opened, then the smoke test is always 100% success.

The Importance of Sewer Smoke Testing in Knoxville, Tennessee

As we all know, the sewer system is an integral part of any home, city, or town in Knoxville, TN. The sewer line is designed to move the waste from our homes in Knoxville to the disposal point. It, therefore, plays a vital role in waste management as well as ensuring that the integrity of public health is not compromised. The sewer system is not designed to transfer rainwater or complement the drainage system. Its core business is to take care of solid waste from our homes in Knoxville, TN. Therefore, the concerned entity is supposed to ensure that drains made explicitly for rainwater are put in place. Our homes sewer systems in Knoxville are interconnected then linked with the main sewer system, which directs all the waste to a sewerage plant where treatment takes place.

Should the sewer system have any leak, then that would greatly hinder the flow of sewerage waste. Also, this allows for water runoff from all sources to choke the sewer lines. This again impairs the uninterrupted flow of sewerage. The leakages also make the sewer gas to find its way out into the ground surface. That’s what brings about the foul smell in your compound in Knoxville, TN. The gas is a health hazard and exposes everyone to a severe public health threat. Therefore, if you have experienced this, then you should not overlook it. It’s probably the highest time to look for the best Knoxville Sewer smoke testing firms, such as Hero Services in Knoxville, TN.

Preparing for a Sewer Smoke Testing in Knoxville, Tennessee

Sewer smoke testing exercise requires you to make enough preparations. The area where the test is being done needs to be appropriately marked, the fire department, residents, as well as businesses informed about the exercise. Precautionary measures should be put in place to ensure that the smoke does not bring any distress to anyone. All this is necessary, although the smoke poses no health hazard. The smoke contains no toxic elements. The smoke is designed in a way that not even the slightest discomfort will be experienced. But since a lot of it will be used, informing all the concerned entities helps to avert any chaotic reaction. As the smoke is forced into the sewer lines, our technicians would be on the lookout for places where the smoke comes out first and any other location in Knoxville, TN, where smoke seeps out.

Plumbing FAQs

Pipe corrosion can be caused by a number of things, almost all of which are related to water quality, including:

  • Chemicals in the water
  • The pH of the water
  • The amount of oxygen in the water
  • The temperature of the water
  • The water pressure and the speed at which the water moves through the pipes.

If you think you have a leak in your home, there’s an easy way you can check. Go out to your water meter and record the level. Make sure no one uses any water for a few hours, then go back and check the meter again (it’s easiest to do this when everyone goes to bed, then check it again first thing in the morning). If the level has changed, you probably have a leak – call Hero Services to have it taken care of right away!

Yes! Not only do leaks get larger with age (see above) but they can also potentially cause damage to your home. Leak detection and repair offers a number of other benefits, including:

  • Reduced or eliminated water loss
  • Reduced risk of damage associated with leaks
  • Reduced need for emergency repairs
  • Reduced need for water treatment and pressurization

Yes. Water leaking out of your pipes or fixtures will eventually cause enough corrosion that even a pinhole-sized leak can eventually grow and potentially cause damage to your home.

Most faucets can be cleaned with a damp, soft cloth. If you just installed new faucets, you may want to find out if the manufacturer has any recommended cleaning solutions for more stubborn stains. Make sure to avoid any abrasive cleaners or pads – these may scratch the surface and finish of your faucet.
