In response to Re: Any tricks to removing the cleanout stub from a Cast Iron Pipe?
As Tony said, the hardest thing may be finding a 3 1/2 X 3" bushing. They are rather scarce. As for getting the plug out, as my dad used to say, "The reason the brass plugs are made thin is because you always have to cut them out."

: I am installing a sewage ejection system into my basement. My plan is to remove the 3 1/2" clean out plug on the end of my main trunk line out to my septic tank and extend it with a wye connector. I would then have my 2" discharge line from the pump go into the wye and re-insert a new clean-out on the other side.

: Are there any tricks to getting the stub out? I tried using a pipe wrench with a cheater bar, but the square nut broke off? Now what? Any ideas.

: Any help would be appreciated!

: P.S. - Is there anything wrong with what I am proposing?
