|In response to Re: hot water comming out of the side of the house|
PVC cannot be used for hot water piping, and the code for the discharge line specifies that it be full size, which is why a flexible connector is not allowed due to the reduction caused by the ridges and since CPVC is also less than "full size" it should also not be permitted.
: : If it's not the water heater relief, then you will have to get to where you can see where the pipe exits the house and trace it to it's source. Since it's PVC, it has to be a drain or vent of some kind, but as HJ stated, you don't give us very much to go on, and you will most likely have to call a plumber in to repair the problem if it is more than the relief valve.

: : : : : after reinstalling a sink and faucet in the kitchen when I turned the water back on hot water was pouring out a pvc pipe that comes out from under my house. I can not figure out where the pipe comes from, and it makes no sense how the sink replacement could have cuased it... I desperately need help here.... Please/
