In an installation like that, the brewing process will often deteriorate cast iron pipe to the extent that there is often no bottom to the pipe. I have seldom found a situation like that which did not require extensive pipe replacement. You can switch to plastic using cast-iron to plastic transitions.

: 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

: 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,
