|In response to Re: Removing cast iron sewer pipe|
My lead joint remover is a 4# hammer. $85.00/hr. portal to portal plus expenses.
: : I am doing a remodel job in the kitchen, and of course when I tore the wall apart I found the cast iron sewer pipe from upstairs bathroom that I just finished replacing all of the cast iron in my house so I could put a bathroom in the basement. It's a dirty job, but if you have good access to the pipes, rent a snap cutter. I was told a Saws All would work, but not for me it wouldn't. I used a 7" grinder. DIRTY JOB! I knew I had to clamp the vent stack in the attic, but the clamp I used didn't hold. Thank God no one was under the pipe when it came down. About 15' of 4" cast iron is damn heavy. I hadn't planned to replace the vent stack right now, but my plans obviously changed.
