Plumbing help


Hello. I have been remodeling a house and have ran into a plumbing problem. All of the drain pipes are made of galvanized steel and I have had to replace some of the really bad stuff.

I was working on the replacing the bathroom drain and ran into a piece that is 3.5 inches that I am trying to connect PVC to. I have tried using both a 3X3 boot and a 4X4 boot to connect and neither one will work. I also tried using Oakum and some stuff the guy at the hardware store told me to use. I am at the point where I am going to have to call a plumber.

Thanks.

It would be pest if at all possible to get rid of all the old steel or cast supplys and drains.
They all will leak at some point and supplys close up on the insides and flake rust off pluging up the fausets and washing machine screens.

Thanks Joe. That link had more boot options than lowes.

I agree though. I want all that nasty steel piping out. Just trying to fix it for now.
