If you own a car, you must have asked this question one time or the other that why is water coming out of my exhaust pipe. There are several reasons why this might be happening to your car. Sometimes, it can be just a common occurrence with no real concern, while at other times, it can be the symptom of a serious underlying problem. Read this oneHOWTO article to know the possible reasons for water coming out of your exhaust pipe.

Water condensation

When you turn on your car’s engine, combustion takes place due to a mixture of air and fuel being ignited with carbon dioxide water being byproducts of this reaction. When the engine cools down, the exhaust gases come out of the car’s combustion chamber, due to which you see condensation water coming out of your exhaust pipe. If this is the reason of the water coming out of your exhaust pipe,...

I am planning to buy a compressor to blow out water pipes for winter. The pipe is 3/4 inch and approximately 50 feet long.

What size compressor would I need?



Hello Phillip:

Yes, it's getting to be the time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere where we have to be concerned about water freezing in pipes that are exposed to the frigid wintertime conditions.

What you need to blow out a fairly small water pipe as you've outlined above is a small compressor.

Let me ask you, are you just going to use the compressor for this? If so, then perhaps you might rent an air pig or small air tank, fill it up with compressed air at the local gas station, and use that to blow the lines instead of buying an air compressor.

On the other hand, once you've got an air compressor, you'll find lots of uses for it.

In order for the water line to be voided of water, you need to fill it...

Access to water in the U.S. couldn’t be easier, you wake up, make coffee, jump in the shower, brush your teeth and turn on the dishwater on your way out the door. The EPA estimates that, “The average American family uses more than 300 gallons of water per day at home, and that, “roughly 70 percent of this use occurs indoors.” So when you’re greeted with brown water coming from your faucets first thing in the morning, it’s a cause for some concern.

Sometimes brown water in your home’s water supply can be linked to:

Burst water mains in your municipal system Water main repairs in your municipal system Extensive use of water by the fire department Redirecting water supplies to meet the demands of your municipal water system Too much iron and/or manganese in the water A rusty pipe

Basically, any disturbance of sediment in water pipes can cause light brown to dark brown particles appearing in your water.

What are these particles?

The hole in the roof where the vent pipe penetrates is usually weatherproofed with a jacket made of lead, called a “boot.” The malleable lead is bent over the pipe rim at the top and slipped under the roofing at the base. Unfortunately, because lead has a sweet taste, squirrels love to chew them up and one the defects we regularly in our home inspection reports is a “squirrel-damaged pipe boot,” like in the photo below. When the wrap of lead over the rim is chewed away, rain can come down the outside of the pipe into the attic. It’s usually not enough to do major damage, but will cause staining and rot at the roof sheathing over time.

Some roofers tie aluminum around the the lead boot for protection from squirrels, and we know homeowners that surround them in chicken-wire. But the most elegant solution is the one shown at the top of the page, which we are seeing more often now on new roofs in Gainesville.

While we hope you find this series of...
