replacement garbage disposal drain pipe stuck!
 
2 Attachment(s)
Removed my old ISE disposal today, but can't get the black downpipe/drainpipe out of the fitting.


i tried gently wiggling, rocking etc etc, but it wont come out. is there any tool to help it out? i'm worried that the previous installer glued it in. if they did glue it in, do i need to hack it off? oh brother...

any help/ideas would be great. fyi, the new disposal wont fit the existing fitting. i prayed, but that wasn't enough.

first pic is the black exit pipe that was attached to the disposal, 2nd pic just a back up to reference the entire plumbing job.

thanks again
dave

Whoever did that pluming cemented those pipes in place. That's why it won't move.
Maybe cut the pipe below the "T" and replace it with a compression "T" compatible with the other pipe size.

agh! my worst nightmare. cemented me in! thanks for confirming my thoughts. at least it's not a case of me being too weak.

Try penetrating oil and a heat gun.

Actually looking again I would cut it all out to the main and replace it with all compression fittings.
Presently if your trap clogs you can't remove it to clean it.

That trap has a clean out on the bottom.

Use a large pair of channel-locks to twist that black disposer tail piece out. I doubt it is cemented. The get stuck from water deposit build up.

I'm seeing threads and a compression nut. Twist it but with a back up.

thanks for all the replies. lucked out and found a plumber, who's the husband of our babysitter. he came in, couldnt get the tube out either, hacked off some fittings, installed a new p-trap and 60 minutes later, i was garberating the old pvc pieces.
