Cast Iron Drain Pipe


Doing a bathroom remodel and when I chipped out the mortar bed & exposed the drain I noticed that the pvc drain seemed to be just resting on top of the cast iron drain pipe. Before I can move forward can someone please give me some advice on how to connect new pvc drain to cast??.. Thanks..

No. Shower drain is cast.

I seen these. I am just concerned about clamps rusting or rubber dry rotting...

These are code approved- tried and tested
The bands are stainless steel and the neoprene will not rot.
Use a 5/16 nut driver to tighten to 60 inch lbs.

Got the compression coupling in place.. 1 problem... Drain sits too high by about 1-1/2".
