    Just got back to the house. I picked up both a 2"x2" and a 3"x2" Fernco donut to see which one may fit this hole, but one is too big, one is too small!

    It makes sense when you compare the donut...
  3. Whole-house filter install soon, planning the loop.

    Looking to install a pair of whole-house filters in the near future, trying to get some background/tips.

    I have a 3/4" copper main line that runs up the wall in the basement from the meter. At...

    From another layman's POV, it seems fine. 3/4" PEX should handle the 50' distance without much issue. The only real *concern* I would have had was also the WH-PEX clearance, which at 3' you've...

    Sorry for the delay answering, the ID of the hub/spigot is almost exactly 3".

    The "inner hole" going into the stack doesn't look to be much more than 1.5" tops.

    The bushing has held up pretty well in the 83 years since it was installed (I assume it came with the house new in 1919).

  7. We're out

    Here's what I was able to get done last nite. Most of the time was setting up the bracing for the joist notch.

    Notched the joist:

    Now I know why you included that pic earlier, didn't notice the hub...

    Good to have a heads-up on that 'wisconsin', I thought it odd that the toilet drained 'upstream' from this tub/sink...

    Makes me think that I should start the "vent" fund now so that when that lead bend finally needs to go the 'wisconsin' could be popped out too.

    If the lead bend did need to get replaced, would I...

    It is a hub, the vent runs up inside the wall just behind the toilet.



    That's why I was considering popping out a portion of that joist just behind the ell. Removing the bathroom obviated the...

    I kinda figured something like a FIP. Would that fill enuf of the void that it could have been leaded in without any oakum behind? I'm really trying to baby this particular CI part due to the vent....

    It's still pretty tight at this point, that bottom pic kinda-sorta shows that the galv pipe is threaded into *something*, but I've no idea what it really looks like, or how far it goes in. I've got...
  13. Removing Lead/Oakum from cast iron - replacing tub/sink drain line - pics

    Hello all,

    This is my first post here, but I've been lurking for months now (you all rock btw). Apologies ahead of time for the novel, just trying to be thorough!

    Started "de-muddling" our...
