Old metal waste line to PVC issues


Charm indeed. LOL. Oh I knew I would be in for some interesting things, although never thought something as simple as a sink replacement would be this trying. :/

if the piece coming from the wall is in good shape you can use one of these, you can get them in chrome also

the broken piece you have now is soldered to a threaded bushing which usually has to be cut to get it out. then you can use a pvc male adapter and go from there

Old metal waste line to PVC issues


Here is where you get to join the club of those of us that have owned old homes. I know you don't want to hear this, but I would take a hammer and beat out the plaster around that pipe, then using a saws all or your multi tool cut out the lath blocking that pipe and cut the pipe off a couple of feet from the in wall fitting. Look in the pipe. It is probably severely clogged for at least the first foot or so from the trap. Replace all clogged pipe with same sized DWV PVC pipe, or try to clear, couple with a rubber HD Fernco fitting and patch the wall.

Welcome to the world of "Charm" as Joe puts it. You are earning your "Bones"

What your last picture shows is called a solder collar. Do you want to fix it?

Well of course it would be nice to fix. Question is if it causes a larger issue.

Do you own a sawall?

If you do wack the pipe sticking out flush with the soldier collar.

Using a saw all with a hack saw blade you will need to slice the brass bushig 2 to 3 times without cutting the threads of the Galvanized pipe it is in.

Takes a bit of skill and good vision but it can get down.

Then you take a flat blade screwdriver and a hammer and peel the brass out.

Then you install a Plastic FIP with teflon tape and pipe dope being careful you do not cross thread.

Then install a Male trap adaptor by gluing it in the other piece. Use the proper glue...

You can also cut them out with one of these

A bit more time consuming but a lot safer for the old pipe.

Good luck
