Just saw that on the other thread. Heck of a handy product. I've never seen one before.
Econdave, I don't know where you broke the pipe, but if it is possible to access the plumbing by cutting a hole in the ceiling below, that's the way to go. Removal of the floor to access plumbing could get incredibly involved and rather expensive. If you cut out sheetrock beneath, you can replace it and only have to worry about making it look good, whereas cutting out the floor would require taking out enough floor to replace the floor sheathing from joist to joist.
