Thousands of municipalities in the US and around the world use the Superior® method of Smoke Testing sanitary sewer lines with great success. Hundreds of millions of feet of sanitary sewer mains have been effectively tested using Superior® Smoke products, eliminating surface water inflows and the Sewer System overflows (SSO’s) that result from them. Used widely since 1961, the Superior® Smoke Testing Technique simultaneously leak-tests sanitary sewer mains, house laterals and plumbing. Studies show that over 60% of surface water inflow occurs through house laterals and plumbing. The Superior® Smoke Testing Technique has enabled many sewerage operating authorities to qualify for federal grants under the provisions of Water Pollution Control Public Law 92-500. Smoke Testing not only saves money - it is essential to protecting our environment. Every year over 75,000 SSO’s dump billions of gallons of raw sewage into our sensitive environment. Reducing surface water inflow is the cheapest and fastest way to reduce SSO’s and the pollution caused. High-quality Superior® Smoke Products are made in the USA and are designed to meet the recommendations of NASSCO, EPA & WEF.
