Before you sell a home in the Pittsburgh area 

you'll likely need a dye test done
before the sale can be closed.

Why Do I need a Dye Test?


There's been a growing problem with sanitary sewers overflowing. The rain water that's supposed to be sent safely into the storm drains and onto the rivers, is instead going into the sanitary sewer. That's because many of the buildings were built with their downspouts and outside drains tied into the sanitary sewer system that's not meant to handle rain water.


So now the local municipalities require that before a deed cannot be transferred, until there is a certificate of compliance or a dye test proving the storm runoff from the downspouts and outside drains is not going into the sanitary sewer.

What's in a Dye Test?


Detailed Inspection

All points of runoff are tested including: downspouts yard drains, driveway drains and sub-surface drains

You'll be able to sell your home without your local municipality stepping in and delaying you.

Tony Garrubba , Landlord

He has bailed me out of many jams

Vince is fantastic with all sorts of plumbing and steam heating. He has bailed me out of many jams. Vince is the complete package.

When he digs through a wall to replace a pipe, he is able to plaster and paint the wall when he is done to get the room back to normal again. When he digs through the floor to replace a pipe, he is able to tile the floor to normal appearance again.

With the steam heating, he is innovative and educational. He is willing to explain the problem and the solution clearly to the owner. Vince is not afraid to tackle the tough projects that require significant work and perseverance. He gives you a fair price for all work he does. He is willing to come out immediately when there is an emergency.

Our sump pump failed at the worst possible time (2 am during flooding rains). We used the emergency contact number and he was able to get me scheduled the next morning. Vince got here quick and saved me from possible disaster. He stopped the water from ruining my entire basement.

I'd recommend Vince to anyone in the Pittsburgh area with any plumbing issues.

Christian M , Home owner

The best thing about Vince, is that when finished, the area is left neat, clean and done.

My father in law, first started using Vince for backflow valve inspections at our funeral home. From that initial call, we have used Vince for our plumbing needs … commercial and residential. He is responsive to emergency situations, and, makes sure the job is complete and well done to meet and exceed expectations.

If he detects another area of concern, he is certain to make appropriate recommendations and follow-up with a plan of action… he is capable to handle the smallest job or tackle the largest project (such as sewer lines) which involve a lot of hard labor.

Safety is his key concern, and,Vince makes sure the job meets all standards. The best thing about Vince, is that when finished, the area is left neat, clean and done. No Worries
