I have a 4' section of horizontal 4" cast iron soil pipe in a ceiling I need to remove/replace. It is full of waste. When I removed the ceiling I was bathed in human waste, and I would like to avoid that experience a second time! What would be the best way to drain it before cutting it out? Should I cut a slot with a grinder and place the bucket underneath? Drill it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
