Aftercare after repair
Outdoor sewage is managed separately by the state and your home.
Sewers and other drains and pipes that surround your home are managed separately by the government and your home.
The criteria for determining this is simply whether they are located inside or outside your property.
The sewage catch basins (rainwater catch basins) in the parking lot are managed by the homeowner, while the sewage pipes around the perimeter are basically managed by the government.
Therefore, you should contact the water department or the management company to investigate off-site leaks, pipe and drain cleaning, and leaks.
For single-family dwellings, if the problem is on the premises, you will need to contact a plumber and spend money to repair the problem.
Causes and solutions for outdoor
sewer problems and malfunctions
(1) Sewer leak causes and solutions
The main cause of sewage leaks is aging drainage pipes due to damage.
Sewer pipes are located outdoors, so they are often damaged by vibrations from earthquakes or increased water flow due to heavy rainfall, causing pipe damage.
When sewage pipes leak, the drainage does not flow properly and overflows into the street, releasing not only foul odors and foul smells, but in the worst case scenario, it can backflow into the house.
If you discover a leak around a sewage system, first check whether it is inside or outside your property, then contact the appropriate authorities and take prompt action.
(2) Repairing a clogged sewer drain pipe
When sewer drains (pipes) become clogged, backflows and odors can occur. In such cases, we recommend high-pressure cleaning to clean and clean the drain pipe.
The easiest way to do this is with a household high-pressure cleaner. Basically, this is the only way to solve most of the problems.
Depending on the timing, there may be a delay in responding even if you contact a contractor, so if you are really concerned about the odor, try washing it clean once. If you do not have a high-pressure washer, you can use a broom to clean up the debris.
However, if you try to clean the parts you cannot see, it may cause damage to the pipes, which may worsen the problem.
(3) Sewer and outdoor odor control (DIY)
When sewers are clogged and flow poorly, wastewater can back up and smell particularly foul.
The water flowing through the sewage system has various odors because it is treated with domestic wastewater from households all together.
To prevent this from happening, here’s one DIY tip for odor control that you can do on a regular basis!
Sprinkle baking soda on the drains and drainpipes of washing machines, sinks, etc. in your house, leave it for about 30 minutes to an hour, and then rinse it off with warm water. This will help deodorize the water going down the drain.
Rolling up aluminum foil into a ball the size of a golf ball is also a good measure. As a precaution, when placing it in the drain trap of a bathroom or washing machine, make sure it is large enough not to impede the flow.
(4) What is the role of sewage catch basins and how to solve problems?
The sewage catch basin is a part of the sewage system installed to check the condition of the inside of the drainage pipes.
If it is not functioning properly, we recommend that you ask a plumbing contractor to clean and inspect it.
Dirt other than domestic wastewater, such as fallen leaves, can also accumulate in the sewage system and cause clogging. If you notice a foul odor or foul smell in the sewage, please check the sewage basin as well.
If it is clogged or not flowing properly, cleaning the sewage basin may be the solution. You can clean it at home, but it is also important to have it inspected by a professional.

First aid until workers arrive for a plumbing problem Water leakage/clogging
First aid for water leakage (toilet, kitchen, bath, sink, faucet/tap, drain)
How to close the main valve for the entire house
In the case of a leak in the toilet, kitchen, bath, sink, etc., first calm down and turn off the water. You can shut off the water by turning off the "water shutoff valve" at the point where the leak is occurring.
If you do not see a water shutoff valve, or if shutting off the water supply to your entire home is not a problem, please turn off the main water valve.
The main water valve is located on the ground inside the house in the case of a detached house. For condominiums and apartment buildings, it is located in the pipe shaft next to the front door.
Toilet stopcocks are located on either side of the toilet bowl.
There are two types: a type that can be turned with a flat-blade screwdriver and a handle type that can be turned by hand.
Turning it clockwise (clockwise) stops the water supply.
*If your house is equipped with a bidet, be careful not to mistake the valve for the bidet valve.
If you do not see a water shutoff valve, turn off the main water valve for the entire house.
The kitchen and washbasin faucets are located below.
Open the door under the kitchen sink and under the washbasin to check. There is a water supply pipe (water) and a hot water pipe (hot water). Turn the water stopcock clockwise to stop the water supply. There are two types: one that can be turned with a flat-blade screwdriver and the other with a handle that can be turned by hand.
If you cannot find a water shutoff valve, turn off the main water valve for the entire house.
The stopcock for the bathroom faucet is located on the leg.
There are two main types of bathroom faucets: wall-mounted and pedestal-mounted.
If the faucet comes out of the wall, turn the "water" or "hot water" stopcock clockwise (clockwise) on the leg or on the back of the faucet to shut off the water supply.
If you do not see a water shut-off valve, turn off the main water valve for the entire house.
First aid for clogs (toilets, kitchens, baths, sinks, drains/drainpipes)
In case of clogged drains in toilets, kitchens, baths, sinks, etc., please wait as it is.
Our staff will rush to the site immediately.
Flushing or touching the drain may cause the clog to go deeper into the drain pipe and make the situation worse.
Check fire insurance, homeowners insurance, and personal liability insurance
If you have fire insurance, home contents insurance, or personal liability insurance, you may be compensated for repair costs incurred due to water leakage.
Basically, the insurance does not cover the cost of repairing water leakage, but it may cover the cost of repairing your home (wallpaper, floor, furniture) caused by water leakage damage, as well as compensation for damages to the downstairs of your apartment, depending on the contents of your policy (contents and conditions attached).
First, check your insurance policy. If you do not have the insurance policy on hand, contact the management company or insurance company.

Beware of malicious vendors!
Some plumbing repair companies charge for work that is not necessary, or solicit sales of expensive products that have nothing to do with plumbing repair.
Be wary of contractors with advertisements and flyers offering extremely low prices. If you feel distrustful, please think calmly and respond to the situation.
