Trying to crank it off but no luck. Don't want mess up the rest of the dwv. Is there thread breaker you guys recommend? Or propane torch?


On a separate note when I thread on the new nipples do I need to use plumbers putty or plumbers tape?

Thanks

Oh buy new threaded sanitary tees?

Yeah I guess I could do that. Was hoping for a less expensive solution.

Re: Removing plumbing to install sheetrock


It's a two way thread sanitary tee - so pulling it out will a pain.

Hit it with map gas no luck. Maybe a longer wrench or pipe extension?

Did you put penetrating oil in the joint?
If not, I would spray some in the joint and let it do its work.

Sometimes giving it a clockwise turn, and then counterclockwise will break it loose.

If you can't get it you could cut it and join to it with fernco coupling.

I tried but I didn't go all out. If I crack something back there I'm fukd. I'd rather cut off the bad piece with my angle grinder.

Re: Removing plumbing to install sheetrock


Just realized , that joint is probably a lead and oakum joint, not threaded.

Take a wire brush to it so we can see.
