Trap lead cap is stuck
Posted by Barry on April 28, 19101 at 20:12:38:
Our toilet is clogged up. I went under the house to
remove the lead cap to see whats happening. The cap closet to the cesspool was hard to
get off. When we flushed there was no water flow. I then tried to remove the cap closest
to the toilet. I tried but nothing happened. I started with an open wrench and then graduated to
a 24 inch pipe wrench. Nada! Would'nt budge. I tried heating the cap up
with a torch, still nothing. And then i tried hitting and tapping.

Any suggestions????????

Would it be easier to put a snake down the toilet and snake it through until it hits the trap and then not even have to worry about
removing the stuck lead cap?

Thanks Barry
