What’s that smell?

SPT Odor Detection

Unpleasant odors emanating from your plumbing is more than just irritating, it can be a sign of a potential larger problem in your pipes. Sewer odors are one of the number one complaints that plumbers hear. A tell-tale sign that there is a problem with your sewer line is when the smell is present throughout the house rather than being isolated to one drain.

At SPT, our pipe repair specialists will help you get rid of recurring or persistent sewer gas intrusions or odors. Cast iron pipes that make up most sewer drain lines can crack or corrode over time, suffer from a joint failure, or leak, often resulting in backups and a sewer or wastewater small within your home or property. This can happen within your home under your flooring or outside of the home as the drainpipe moves waste toward the city sewer line and away from your property.

Since drain pipes are not pressurized, it can be difficult to locate the source of the odor or leak. Unlike leaks in water pipes, leaks in sewer lines are harder to see. If our camera cannot detect the source of the odor, SPT pumps a harmless non-toxic visible vapor into the drain to find it. Once we pinpoint the location of the leak, SPT will discuss the possible repair solutions with you. Cracked or corroded pipes can often be repaired with pipe lining, which creates a seamless “pipe within a pipe” without having to dig up and replace the existing pipe.
