The City of Blue Springs is working with TREKK Design Group, LLC to conduct smoke testing of our sanitary sewer systems. The smoke is non-toxic, non-staining, has no odor, white to gray in color, creates no fire hazard and is not harmful to pets. The smoke should not enter your building unless you have defective plumbing or dried up drain traps.
The testing blows a non-toxic vapor through the sewer pipes to locate breaks in the sewer revealed by escaping smoke. Locations for defects may include roof downspouts, uncapped cleanouts, driveway drains, stairwell drains, yard or area drains, window well drains, foundation-perimeter drains and defective service pipes.
