Drain Dye Testing

 

Our engineers here at Metro Rod Brighton & Gatwick often carry out dye testing on any drainage job. When carrying a drain test, they first must mix the powder with some water.

Once they engineer has done that, they then pour the mixture into the drain, toilet or sink they wish to trace. By conducting dye testing, inappropriate connections can be identified such as:

  • Detecting and tracing the flow of water in drains, pipes or sewers
  • Identifying individual drains runs
  • Tracing leaks into pipes, drains and sewers

The drain dye comes in several colours including red, blue, green and purple and is available in powder or tablet form, the dye is environmentally friendly for use on water systems that outfall to water courses or rivers and it will not stain your bath, toilet or hand basin when used within the property.
