Sewer Dye Powder, Liquids & Tablets – Which to Use in Sewer Dye Test

Plumbers and sewer professionals perform sewer dye tests daily. Every dye test and leak detection test is unique, and Bright Dyes has a solution for all. It all comes down to having the correct sewer dyes for every application. 

Not all sewer dye options are created equally. When choosing sewer dyes for small-scale or large-scale applications, professionals must understand how powders, liquids, and tablets perform under pressure. Since choosing the right sewer dye can mean the difference between success and failure, it’s essential to get it right the first time. 

Powder, Liquid, and Tablet Sewer Dye Applications

No two jobs are alike when it comes to leaks. That means professionals must pivot their approach to cater to every unique scenario. And when it comes to leaks, time is money. Luckily, there are sewer dye solutions that work for every type of leak, no matter how big or small. The key is making the right choice the first time to improve efficiencies and minimize errors. 

Sewer Dye: Powder Applications

Powder sewer dyes are unique in that they can disperse a large amount of color dye into large volumes of water. They are most often used in applications involving cooling towers, lakes, and rivers. Since they have a moderate dispersion rate, they allow professionals to get the job done efficiently and effectively. Since powder dyes are mostly non-toxic, biodegradable, and most are certified to ANSI/NSF International Standards, they are safe to use in various applications without the risk of harming the water or any wildlife. 

Sewer Dye: Liquid Applications

One of the best things about liquid sewer dyes is their very rapid rate of dispersion. The bright colors available in liquid dyes make them highly visible even in large volumes of water. Liquid dyes are ideal for moderate to large volumes of water (more than 20,000 gallons) and can help detect leaks efficiently. Most professional liquid dyes are safe, non-toxic, biodegradable, and certified to NSF International Standard 60.

Sewer Dye: Tablet Applications 

Tablet tracer sewer dyes are best for applications when simplicity is needed. They require no measuring and typically are safe, non-toxic, biodegradable, and certified to ASNI/NSF International Standard 60. With a moderate rate of dispersion, tablet sewer dyes give flexibility for plumbing professionals to identify leaks in small volumes of water (less than 20,000 gallons). 

When choosing sewer dyes for any application, the goal is to choose dyes that are non-toxic and biodegradable. Preserving wildlife and focusing on water conservation is critical when it comes to any leak tracing project. Make the right choice every time with the Kingscote Chemicals Bright Dyes® collection.
