Re: Advise on Replacing Cast Iron Waste Pipe

Ahh.. yes, the reason. We would like to add a 1/2 bath. Currently it has just a single bathroom. The toilet is connected to the old metal pipe. So, adding another toilet would require attaching its piping to the old pipe, which from all accounts is a real job. My thought was that it would be easier for the remodel, and better off in the long run, to run all new piping.

Better off in the long run?......possibly.Unless there is an issue with the existing piping tying into existing cast iron pipe can be a fairly easy matter. I tie into cast all the time using either a cast iron blade or a manual cast iron cutter to cut out the pipe needed to install PVC sanitary "T"s using cast to PVC adapters.
