In response to Re: Loosing ABS joints
: Hi, I am going to do modifications to some drainage pipes, but don't have a lot of room to play with between fittings. I was hoping to get away with not replacing all of the current fittings, as they are in good shape. Is there any way to loosen the glue used on ABS joints, as opposed to having to cut the pipes?

: Thanks.

ABS joints are basically welded togther, not glued, you would have better luck with PVC. Try to trace back the fittings as far as possible on the line to make a clean cut. You might be able to reassemble it with slip couplings or no-hub couplings.
Good Luck. e-plumber
