    Smoke Testing


    Has anyone built this and did it work out for you?

    Reverse the hose on a shop vac and you got the same thing. Best to use a small weak shop vac. Too much air and the smoke get too diluted to be visible.

      An electric leaf blower on low speed with a fernco coupling at the end and hold the smoke bomb with a made to fit coat hanger. Call the fire departments first.

        I've done asimilar thing with a tee and dryer duct and leafblower. It is too strong and will blow toilets. It has to be held back from the tee a few inches to not be too strong. I think the fart fan is a better concept. The smokies work well and don't stink too much.
        This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

          Yes, a few inches away and you are ok. I also put the bomb in between the vent and the blower.
