Repairing broken 3 inch cast iron drainage pipe connected to floor drain in a brew pub
Posted by David Walker on October 31, 2001 at 13:05:15:
I'm remodeling a brew pub. In the kitchen a large floor drain was not working properly.
Upon breaking out the concrete and excavating around the 3 inch cast iron drainage pipe
we have discovered the cast iron metal elbow was completly disintagrated, and the rest of
the cast iron pipe is brittle. A moderate strike with a regular hammer causes the pipe
to break. We're about 3 feet below ground level.

How can I repair this without using cast iron parts?

Sheezzzz, this is hard work! I'm sore as heck from the jack hammer. HELP!!!

Thanks,

David
