    Default pipe

    Hi there,

    Is it correct to say like this?

    The sewage pipe exploded last night. My building smelled awful.

    Thanks

    I suppose that there's an outside chance, a miniscule chance of a sewer pipe exploding because of sewer gas, but I'm almost certain that the meaning you want has been expressed by David L.
