Leak coming from pipe in garage
 
3 Attachment(s)
Owner of a brand new house only lived here 3 weeks, had numerous problems with leaks already in this house (see previous threads). I'm getting so tired of this, should not be going through this in a new home.

Looks like every time I flush upstairs toilet, a small amount is leaking out from pipe in garage. So another words bodily fluid & feces have been soaking in my drywall and baseboard in garage for 3 weeks.

Please take a look at these pictures and let me know if you guys think this is also an internal leak? And any other advice?

just a clean out plug ..needs unscrewed either teflon tape or pipe dope reinstall should be good...

if the house is brand new the plumber that did the job should come back and fix it.

Since this is a brand new house, do you think it is necessary for them to replace the damp drywall that has been sitting in urine for 3 weeks?

Does this kind of stuff happen in a new house or is this negligence on the builders/inspector part? Keep in mind this is the 4 th leak in my new house.

no it should not happen...sad to say it does...when we trim houses for final inspection we flood the plumbing system to check for little leaks like what you have and repair them BEFORE the homeowner ever sees it....then we have to warranty our work against leaks for 1 yr.....if that drywall that got wet bothers you by all means call your builder....ben AND COMPLAIN.

Ben, if you flood the house, how do you know where the leaks are?
But I agree you should do it before the homeowner ever sees it. :yes:
