    Hello,

    I'm finishing a basement bathroom that was already roughed in, just cracked open the toilet flange by hitting the cap with a hammer and water is leaking out from the toilet flange drain. Most of the water looks clear and doesn't appear to smell.

    Any ideas of what is going on??? The house was built in 2007.

    Please help!

    Thanks!

    Do you have a septic pit? Is the pump maybe not running?

    Where does the sewer exit your house, if you know?

    There is a sump pit, but it doesn't appear to be for sewer.

    How far below the floor is the water level in the sump?

    Where does your sewer go out of your house,if you know?

    Did the flow of water from the toilet flange stop?
