I just ripped apart a 1st level bath to remodel.
This bath sits on top of a crawl space.
After digging out the sewage pipe this is what I find.
1) Cracked clay pipe see pic
2) Very funky plumbing work!
One 1.5" Y & one 4-6" Toilet drain pipe placed into the large clay pipe that goes into the ground.
This house was built in 1901 (Wisconsin).
I'm a printer by trade a plumber, carpenter, electrician, computer wiz & auto mechanic on the side. lol
My question is this:
Do I have to get a licensed Plumber here to repair?
Or can I repair this my self with some sort of pipe dope & rubber wrap? don't laugh!+
Something like this?? http://www.piperepair.net/pipewrap.html
I'm thinking this has been this way who knows how long & The Y connector was never even capped off!
This is also a non pressurized pipe????
