In response to Re: Thanks Dale. What about toilet too close to wider tub?
: Dale,

: Thank you for you input. I did go to the plumbing supply store before I got your advice. They told me to saw
: off the cast iron before it bends up and put an abs corner on with a clamp to the cast iron and then
: run abs up to the floor flange. Is this a good idea. Also I am puting in a wider fiberglass whirlpool tub.
: This tub is wider than the old one and now it seems that it will be 12'' or 13" from center of the toilet to
: edge of the tub. Is this a problem and what are my options of moving the toilet over. The cast iron is 13"
: long until it meets the "down spout in the wall". Thanks again and looking forward to suggestions

: Mark

Mark, If you can tie onto the cast iron go for it. You didn't give that option in your last post. The center being closer than 15" from a finished wall is not good. If you can live with it its your call. If this is being inspected you need to re-rough in the waste for the toilet. I you can put a street 22 on the cast iron (being horzontal) you can move the waste for the toilet as long as you have room off the opposet wall.Dale's Plumbing Service LMP
