I have an old house where when the toilet is plunged, water leaks into the downstairs ceiling. After opening the ceiling up, it looks like the original builder didnt quite match up the sewer pipe & caulked or patched around the edge (where the 90 degree turn goes into the next piece of pipe) After 50 yrs it leaks slightly. My problem is that its cut through a joist & the patched section is butted up to another joist so I cannot get at it. Also the upstairs floor is tiled so I do not want to open up from there. Is there a rubber hose or equivilent that I can slide in from the toilet waste pipe to bypass this leaking area? I am guessing it is only 1-2 ft. from the upstairs floor line. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
