Busted Pipe – On the House

Busted Pipe

clothes washer


The waste water from the clothes washer and kitchen sink drain onto the floor of the garage or into the backyard through a pipe on the exterior of the home/kitchen wall. This pipe was broken prior to moving in and remains open. Should I call a plumber?

Waste water from your clothes washer and kitchen sink SHOULD NOT drain onto the garage floor or into the backyard. This waste should discharge into an on-site septic tank or a municipal sewage system. Anything less is unsanitary.We suggest that contact a reliable plumber (or sewer & drain service) in your area to make sure that the drainpipes are configured properly and draining freely. Thus, the best tool that we suggest you use is your telephone.
