Dissassembling poured-lead sewer hub connection?
Posted by frankied on October 11, 19100 at 14:41:06:
Hi all,
I have a poured lead (the "classic" lead-oakum seal)
sewer-to-drain hub connection (cast iron hub to PVC)
that I need to disconnect; is it possible to
dissassemble these joints? (I've never had the pleasure
of working with this style coupling before!)

You might ask why not just cut the PVC pipe, and use
a no-hub coupling, etc, there. Well, all the PVC coming
off this sewer line is back-to-back couplings, wye's,
bends, etc, etc, etc. Simply no straight section
anywhere remotely close to the sewer line, and these
wye's and bends themselves need to be re-thought for
the remodel....

Thanks in advance for any help!
