We are renting a house and when it was cold the back of the toilet just cracked by itself. We had to shut the toilet off and not use it because it will leak. I am afraid to tell the landlord because he will think we broke it, but we did not. Do you have any idea how this could have happened? It is about 15 years old. Thanks

We have a patch of our ground level hardwood floor that I just walked across and it squished. You can hear water pooling underneath it as well as see droplets of water coming through. We thoroughly checked the rest of the house and it's only in one location. We also checked all the bathrooms. Nothing is backed up, no water under the sinks. We'll contact our builder tomorrow. Any idea what this could be?

Pipe locator for ground floor house, in NY I have water

Pipe locator for ground floor house, in NYI have water coming from floor. No sewage is going under that part. No other visible pipes are going through that part of home. Now , I would like to see , if there are any pipe located under the floor? Also if I find the pipe , I want to locate which part of pipe is broken? I found RD 7000 and RD8000 pipe llocator. But seems too expensive. I have infrared camera. But no help from it.Any suggestion?I closed main water , and see water meter . But it does not move. So apparently some pipes might have left over there. Also possibilities of foundation issue might be there. So How can I do it by myself? As plumbers came and go , for no one are hi-tech professionals. They use guessing method.

The plumber needs to cut open the wall to access the standing drain pipe for my washing machine. Something is blocking it, and he's already tried snaking the pipe. Will we need to have the dry wall replaced, and how long will the whole process take (fixing the standing pipe and wall)?
