I was doing some construction and while trying to figure out where the PVC pipe that brings water from the gutters away from my home was going to, I messed up a connection/joint in that pipe. Some plastic came off really easily, and some water started to come out.
I was surprised by the water coming out because it hasn't rained for days, which then made me think that the pipe might be clogged and water is accumulated in the pipe itself. So my question is:
- What is the best course of action here? Should I first get the pipe cleaned (by hydrojetting/snaking it), and then fix the pipe? If so, how do I fix a leaking PVC pipe joint that is wet?
Here is a picture of the watery joist:
