I have a leak in a 7 inch pipe running from my kitchen to my bathroom


I have a small leak from the pipe running from my kitchen to my bathroom i think its a main drain pipe it is 7 inches in diameter, only leaks when it's draining. I have removed the bathroom vanity and cut away the drywall to expose the pipe it's pretty rusted and i don't think I have a wrench big enough to remove it. HELP

Is the pipe cast iron? If so, you'll need to support it, cut the bad section out, replace with ABS pipe using Mission or Fernco bands. You really may want a licenced plumber to do it. Best of luck. Oh, if you are going to cut the pipe yourself, use a snap cutter or sawzall with abrasive blades. A licenced plumber will have these tools.

7 inch pipe . Sounds like something a pro might need to look at.

it ain't 7", they don't make 7" anything. It's probably 4" cast and you will need a licensed plumber to fix this one
