Question about Plumbing
I need to replace part of my cast iron 4 inch soil pipe with PVC.
What is the cheapest and safest way to cut the pipe to allow me to couple into to it ?
I do not want to smash it with a lump hammer incase I damage the pipe below ground, I would also like a neat finish to the edge of the cast iron pipe.
Phil, I recommend a ratchet snap cutter as it will allow you to cut the pipe in a clean manner. These are available for rent at most major home improvement stores in the US. One can also rent one at a tool rental company. I rented mine for $35.00 the bulk of which was a deposit on the tool. Just a reminder when buying the coupling device ensure you ask for or get a 4 inch cast iron to 4 inch PVC coupling. A bit of vaseline will help you get the neoprene coupling to seat properly with the PVC if you encouter resistance. Good luck. If you need more assistance let me know.
