In response to Re: Connecting to cut Galv pipe

: I'm replacing a shower valve and had to cut the galv pipe in the wall to get the old valve out. I need to cut the old pipe back even more so that I can use unions to connect up to the new valve. How can I connect new galv pipe to the old cut galv pipe without removing the old cut valve pipe out of the wall? Is it possible to thread galv pipe that is already in the wall? Is it possible to connect to unthreaded galv pipe? I plan on contracting a total copper repipe fairly soon and just want to do a quick fix that will tide me over till then. Thanks for any advice.


James,
Two choices here:

1) Remove the pipe to the nearest fitting.

2) Get a hand threader, (you can rent them) and put a thread on.
