If you are selling a house in the City of Pittsburgh you are required to have a dye test by PWSA. All city of Pittsburgh property owners whom wish to sell their property must be in compliance with the Dye Testing Ordinance (No. 3 of 2006). It is required that a registered master plumber perform the dye test. Primarily we are looking to make sure storm water and area drains don’t flow into your sanitary sewer lines.

If it is determined that the property is located in a combined sewer area
No dye test is required and the property owner will receive an Evidence of Compliance Certificate and will be able to move forward with the sale of property.
