I am remodeling my bathroom and tried to put in my new tub, only to find out the tub drain is about 3" above the concrete floor. I need to lower the tub drain, but the drain is brass and is sweated or glued to the lead pipe. How do I remove the drain from the lead pipe? I was thinking of sawing off the lead pipe, attaching a coupling, and a new drain.
Thanks, any help would be appreciative, as this is my first time replacing a tub drain and dealing with lead pipe.
