Hey all, plumbing question and background info for you. I have an older home with cast iron pipes. I had everything interior and to the street scoped last year and looked good. Our laundry room is another story. It’s semi detached semi attached by a sun room type thing. Anyway, the washer started overflowing the drain so I had it snaked. 5 wks later same thing happens. now the snake isnt cutting it and the plumber says I need to replace the T and P trap as they are 1.5” into a 2”. He went in through a cleanout on the other side of the wall from a remnant sink-now gone. Said he could get the snake into the house line ok, but couldn’t go through the P trap the other way.

Looking at the photo you can see the sewer line come up out of the concrete on the left. Then a Y – used to be a sink on other side of the wall. Next is the tee going to the P trap and pipe for the washer discharge.

My question is: am I going to have enough room to cut the cast iron below the Y and get the fitting for the new black pipe on? I hadn’t expected there to be such a mangle in there. Any help is appreciated.

There are all types of fittings that can be used to change from iron to ABS or PVC.
You probably dont want to cut off the flange on the bottom sewer pipe. It is easier to shorten pipe than lengthen it. Be very careful when separating the old iron pipes, they have a tendency to break, especially at the point where they cant be accessed easily or cheaply. My suggestion is to remove the two tee-wyes, and everything else above them.

I would use a Fernco, or a C.I. to plastic on the upper pipes and a ABS to iron adaptor to slip into the bottom connection. Any professional plumbing supply house or good hardware store should stock both fittings, or at least have more choices available.

Make your connections and plumb in your new plastic however you choose.
Good luck.

Replace the cabinets, counter tops, and faucets with newer modern and efficient designs. When replacing the cabinets, think about the utility and efficiency of storage of all the items that wind up in a bathroom.

I would suggest getting the plumber to sort out this job, not particularly because it is complicated but due to the messy structure that is there and the age of the property there could be more going on than you know. As a plumber myself, and a professional, I have done hundreds of plumbing jobs over the years and, take it from me, there can be all kinds of surprises in older buildings. Getting a professional in to do the work means it will be done quickly and efficiently and you can have your laundry room back in no time. Plumbers undergo a lengthy apprenticeship because this is a profession that requires skill and knowledge and experience.

It is better to replace the cast iron pipes and get a new one. I know you have to put a little effort and money to do these, but still when you are going to repair it make it long time usable. Going behind a temporary option must be sell my miles foolishness.

This looks like there is enough space to cut the cast iron below the Y and get the fitting for the new black pipe on. But I cannot assure you it will go fine, only an expert can give firm advice so better you get the help of a technician.

I am thinking the quickest why to remove it would be some sort of chemical stripper perhaps, but I would rather not use something like that in the house. Has anyone encountered something like this and has any advice???Private investigation
