NYC MC 810.3 Smoke test
To determine the tightness of chimney construction, a smoke test shall be made in accordance with the following conditions and requirements:
- The equipment, materials, power and labor necessary for such test shall be furnished by, and at the expense of, the owner or holder of the work permit.
- If the test shows any evidence of leakage or other defects, such defects shall be corrected in accordance with the requirements of this chapter, and the test shall be repeated until the results are satisfactory.
- The chimney shall be filled with a thick penetrating smoke produced by one or more smoke machines, or smoke bombs, or other equivalent method. As the smoke appears at the stack opening on the roof, such opening shall be tightly closed and a pressure equivalent to 1/2-inch (13 mm) column of water measured at the base of the stack, shall be applied. The test shall be applied for a length of time sufficient to permit the inspection of the chimney.
What Our Customers are Saying…
On Saturday, two of your employees, Eric & Ricky, came to my house to sweep the chimney and do a repair to the same. Both of these men were courteous and knowledgeable and very neat. They performed the job to my satisfaction and answered any question that I had and I felt very comfortable with them. I did not feel as though I had to be “on guard” as with some other people that have come into my house. I want you to know that because of my recent dealing with Guaranteed Chimney (putting the customer first making things right) and then sending me two their finest workers.
I would not have a problem telling a friend to use your company. I am glad that I used your company for this service. I have no regrets!! Eric & Ricky were “the icing on the cake” that helps to make a great company! Thank you again for all you did. It was a good experience for me!! I have told my co-workers what had happened and how you stepped forward to make things right and they all were extremely impressed by your actions. So am I.
