Random PVC pipe in backyard
I also found a random metal pipe on the side wall.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

How old is your subdivision? Are you in an urban or rural area?

Not a subdivision - house is built in the 70s in Etobicoke. Based on the suggestions I'll see if there's water in the pipe in the basement.SubjectivelyObjective wrote: ↑ How old is your subdivision? Are you in an urban or rural area?
The first pic is just a rough in for a future fixture like a sink or shower. Should probably make sure the trap has water in it so the sewer isnt filling up your house with nice gasses.
The second pipe is probably connected to something, who knows what.
The third pipe is probably just a conduit.

This. I know someone who went from an oil furnace to electric. They lefte the pipe from the ouside to the tanks(tank been unmounted) unlocked. Oil delivery man delivered oil at the wrong address.... many many liters of oil in the basement. Insurance issues. Contaminated basement. Case still in court after several years, a lot of headaches for just a tiny lock on a cap....

Interesting. Maybe I’ll take a shovel to it this weekend to see how far it goes.

I’d guess something like that was a home owner using it to hold something in place. I have a couple in my yard that I smashed in to the ground to hold up some hooks for bird feeders. I found the shepherds hooks I had did not hold well enough in the ground to handle wind days so I smashed a couple 1/2” conduits 8” down (in my case I made them flush so they aren’t a tripping hazard when nothing is in them) and put the shepherd hooks in to them. They are much sturdier as a result.
