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