Plumbing Problem

During a recent San Ramon home inspection, the inspector was surprised to see a fallen drain/waste pipe under the house.

In a large household, it’s conceivable to be flushing a toilet, taking a shower, running the dishwasher and using the washing machine all discharging water at the same time.

A gallon of water weighs approximately 8.4 lbs… 10 gallons of water weighs 84 pounds.

The main drain/waste line fell to the ground most likely due to these older pipe support straps or possibly due an earthquake at the time water was flowing through the main drain/waste line.

Remarkably, there was no water leakage.
