Bathroom Sink Drain (Broken from wall to Ground)
There was a clog in the drain so I took off the connections under the sink to unclog. When I went to attach back to the water drain the pipe broke, the pipe from the wall to the ground)... I cut the sheet rock to get to the pipe to see what I was dealing with I cannot find where the drain pipe went into the ground. I looked and looked. The obvious answer is straight down... I thought I was going crazy but I cannot find where the spot where the pipe broke..

I had purchased flexible couplings to reconnect the drain pipe but without seeing where the pipe broke I cannot fix. THe foundation is cement but the water supply lines that all come from the ground so the drain pipe would too, right? I am hoping someone can give me some insight here.. Thanks.

Can you get a couple of pictures so we can see what you're talking about?

Sure.. I live in Dallas this happened at my Grandpa's house... I am going back tonight. I am not sure if the pictures would help. But I am sure you would know a lot more than me when you saw the pics.. I will try to get them on tonight or tomorrow..
