ABS to Cast


What is the proper connector or connection to use to connect ABS sewer line to Cast Iron sewer line underground? Both are 3".

3" Banded coupling is what we would use in my area. Also known as a no-hub coupling.

Will it rust? How long will it last before leaking?

It's a rubber coupling with a stainless shield and 2 stainless hose clamps.

For underground, I use Fernco couplings. Similar, but thicker rubber, no stainless band, just 2 gear clamps. Just a personal preference, no-hubs are fine too.
