Sewer Dye Testing
What is a Dye Test?
A dye test determines if your home is properly connected to the sewer system by identifying points in the system where rain or groundwater may incorrectly enter the sanitary sewer system.
In performing a dye test, nontoxic dye is placed into each exterior storm connection, such as drains, downspouts, and driveways, and then flushed with water.
It is then verified if the colored water exits into the street via storm water drains or – by monitoring the downstream sanitary sewer manhole – if there is a presence of dyed water in the sanitary sewer.
