Smoke Testing


Smoke provides a simple but effective tool to detect leaks. At SureSearch, we provide an efficient and cost effective smoke testing service that uses a high-flow, non-toxic smoke for finding leaks in plumbing drainage networks, sewers and storm water.

By forcing the non-toxic smoke into the networks or system where leaks are suspected, the leaks can be easily identified as visible smoke starts escaping through the problem area/s, all without causing further damage.

Clients Testimonials

  • Mt. Ousley Shutdown

    Just a follow up email regarding the work carried out by Steve on the shutdown. I’d like to thank Steve for the work he did for me. My partner suffered an anaphylactic attack from a peanut allergy prior to work starting and I had to take him to hospital, leaving me to do the drainage investigation on my own. I couldn’t have got as much work done without Steve’s help and it was greatly appreciated.

  • Job well done

    Hi Glen,

    Job well done, no issues and everything went smooth.

    Professional crew supported by good resources and well maintained equipment.

  • Thank you for providing me with a great service!

    Hi Glen,
    I would just like to write a quick email to acknowledge one of Sure Search’s workers that was on one of our projects the other week.
    We had a job in Forrestville to pump out some Telstra Man Holes at short notice. Scott (one of your sucker truck operators) was really helpful in determining which Telstra Man Hole to pump out first, where to position the truck and communicated very well with me as to how the job was progressing throughout the day.
    This was really helpful as I was not able to be on site for the entire shift on that particular day.
    As a result of this pleasant experience with Sure Search, I would have no issues in recommending your company to any of my contacts.
    Thank you for providing me with a great service.

  • Delighted in dealing with Suresearch!

    I found it to be a delight in dealing with “Suresearch”. All associated personnel have been quite professional throughout the process of conducting their work.
    Efficiency is evident from the moment of booking up until allocated personnel complete the proposed scope of works on site.
    From personal experience I would recommend “Suresearch” for substructure CCTV and imaging related works as the team have proven to be punctual, cooperative, efficient and ultimately can get the job done at a quite reasonable price.
