View Full Version : Lead Pipe - Now what?

02-15-2008, 11:33 AM
Ripped out the old toilet and turns out the old flange wasn't even attached to the floor. It had a wax ring under and above it... it didn't leak so I guess it worked, oh well. :rolleyes:

The drain pipe is made out of lead, and top is level with the floor.

The floor is concrete.

Went to plumbing supply house and they sold me a brass flange and a lead pipe extension.

What the heck do I do now? How do I get a tight seal between the existing lead drain and the extension? I can't just jam it in there I need a seal between the two pipes somehow, right?

Thanks, yeah I posted my question here first but it looked like I would have a better chance of getting a response on the other tread, so I posted there as well...

Again thanks!
