Mr. George Lue lives in a beautiful mobile home park in Fontana, California. His home is a permanent structures in this park. He has called me for estimates in the past but this time he needed my repair service to address a major leak in the sewage system outside his home. He had received a repair ticket by the park administrator to have the sewage leakage repaired immediately. This post address this problem.
This post shows six steps on troubleshooting and repairing a leaking sewage pipe in a permanent mobile home.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows all the electrical and the sewage pipes in one area. A service technician at the mobile park informed George that his sewage pipes underneath his mobile home were loose was dripping with sewage.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the separation of pipes until the sewage main pipe was freed. The metal pipe on the left side is the electrical for the mobile home. This pipe has a waterproofed exterior casing that protects the electrical wires feeding the mobile home electric power. Notice below the two large stainless steel bands this is the only way to secure the main sewage from draining.

Step 4: Fig.3 shows pictures shows the snake pipe entry. If the sewage was clogged this would be the access pipe to place a plumber's snake. Regular home have them too, but they are usually 1-1/2 wide and are near bathroom, and sinks. This snake access pipe is a 4-inch drain line and it's for a permanent mobile home.
