EZSMOKE ® allows a technician to use low pressure, non-toxic smoke, with a pleasant lemon scent and UV dye, to quickly locate annoying sewer gas leaks that are often difficult and time-consuming to find in cuts, cracks, fractures, punctures, porosity or unsealed fittings inside or outside residential or commercial buildings.
The core of EZSmoke ®’s convenience is that it uses patented technology to send non-toxic smoke containing a trace dye (UltraTrace UV) through the air (not a liquid) that is contained within pipes, wall cavities, or other forms of enclosed spaces. Any visible smoke immediately provides an indication of a large leak.
However, if smoke alone cannot provide the source of sewer gas odor, technicians can rely on UltraTrace UV as a sewer gas detector, which is carried within the smoke vapor, to pinpoint very small leaks of annoying sewer gas.
Three Ways to Reliably Find Leaks of All Kinds.
- EZsmoke creates a dense pleasant smelling, non-toxic visible vapor, or smoke – thick white in color. This smoke allows the quick visual location of leaks, even in the hardest to reach places.
- UltraTraceUV® technology, a specially designed UV dye carried with the vapor, collets around the exit of most leaks – marking very small leaks that smoke alone can’t find.
- EZsmoke’s pleasant citrus-scented smoke allows it to be used during regular business with people around and provides proof of leaks when smoke can’t be seen, but can be found with UltraTraceUV®.
Find Leaks Faster with Smoke, Dye & Citrus Scent
With just five pounds of pressure in the system being tested EZsmoke allows one technician to locate all cuts, cracks, fractures, punctures, porosity, or unsealed fitting leaks in the system. Simply hook the EZsmoke unit to the system being tested and a source of compressed air or inert gas (i.e., nitrogen, CO2) and run the automated pressure leak down test. If the test indicates leakage in the system, fill the system with vapor, plug all outflow exits in the system, set the unit to low-pressure leak testing, and look for smoke or check for the smoke’s citrus scent.
Once the system being tested is charged with smoke simply inspect all areas of the system and look for smoke collecting near existing leaks. Or smell for the citrus scent you should detect if leaks are too small to see. With the special UV light included with every unit finding most leaks is simple as going back to areas smoke was seen, or where the citrus scent was present, and looking for the glowing dye surrounding the actual leak.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I need to evacuate the building when I leak-test with EZsmoke?
A: No. EZsmoke’s vapor is non-toxic and even has a pleasant citrus smell.
Q: If I’m leak-testing a water system with EZsmoke, will I need to clean any vapor residue that may be left behind?
A: No. EZsmoke’s specially formulated and approved vapor-producing solution is highly refined mineral oil, which is not only food-grade but is also Kosher certified. Any residue will easily wash away.
Q: How long a run of pipe can I test with EZsmoke?
A: Many factors have to be taken into consideration, such as pipe diameter size and if pipe size reductions are in the system. But generally speaking, the Diagnostic Smoke® vapor will continue to travel as long as the backpressure in the system being tested does not exceed the 5 PSI delivery pressure of the EZsmoke. So, in many cases, the smoke vapor will travel hundreds of feet.
Q: How many tests can I get out of one bottle of oil?
A: Approximately 50, 18-minute test cycles, from one 16 oz. bottle. EZsmoke holds 32 oz. of solution.
Q: What kinds of oil can I use with EZsmoke?
A: You should only use the approved UltraTraceUV® solution. Pleasantly scented, it is a patented non-toxic, non-contaminating solution containing a trace dye that marks the leak spots. It also easily wipes clean. Using the wrong solutions can contaminate systems under test and damage the EZsmoke unit.
Q: What pressure limits does the EZsmoke unit have?
A: Delivery pressure is non-adjustable and preset to 5 PSI.
Q: What kind of pressure sources does the EZsmoke unit work with?
A: Compressed air or any inert gas.
Q: Can I use EZsmoke without compressed air or gas?
Q: How far can I test from the EZsmoke unit?
A: It is not uncommon for units to be used with four 25ft extensions (100 ft.).
Q: How long does an average test take?
A: That completely depends on the application. But there is no method faster for finding leaks.
Q: How many people does it take to run the EZsmoke unit?
Q: How long will the EZsmoke unit run a test before shutting off?
A: It is on an 18-minute test cycle timer.
Q: What can I test with EZsmoke?
A: Any system not containing a liquid.
Depending on what you are looking for, the absence or presence of Diagnostic Smoke® vapor handily identifies restrictions, leaks, and flow characteristics. With this in mind, think of the variety of test applications in your particular field of expertise. You may be surprised at how often you will be able to rely on this helpful technology to improve your productivity.
