Re: P trap delima


See how that chrome pipe is attached in the wall. If it can be removed and you may be able to screw a PVC MIP into it if a female threaded adapter is on the other end of that chrome tube. Then run a glue trap in schedule 40 pvc.

Its lead soldered. I'm going to pull the outside cedar, cut and replace!

Thanks

New issue


So it appears the bottom pipe is a lead pipe of some unknown size! The upper has an outside diameter, per digital caliper, of 1.65 inches. So I am assuming it's 1 1/4 pipe?

So based on this pic, how do I get the lower pipe out of the cast iron and how do I, if you can, secure replacement pvc in the cast iron?

As usual, rotate pic clockwise one turn!

Re: P trap delima


My retirement motto is: " just do whatever is fun and irresponsible ". This rotating pictures is just a little too responsible but enough fun to over rule that irresponsible decision.

That was put together with a gasoline blow torch. You may not be able to find one to take it apart.

Re: P trap delima


Support the upper cast iron pipe. Cut below the sink t connection. Remove cast up to bell connection. Use no hub rubber fittings to insert a section of abs pipe with your new sink stub out.

sort of like this image only cast iron instead abs and go through wall instead of sideways through stud unless you also want to move the drain sideways.

Problem resolved. Took a steel rod, inserted it into the drain and lifted. The soft lead easily moved without issue or leak. Connected p trap and allwas well.

While I did not get to do as pictured above, at least it is functioning now.

Thanks

Re: P trap delima


I got to ask how old is that house? Lead pipe on a lav drain highly unusual in Cleveland area. We usually have cast iron with solder collars or copper or threaded galvanized piping on lav drains.
