In response to Re: iron vs. plastic
Can't cut the cast iron with a cutting torch? OK, so would have to cut it with metal saw, which would be a pain. Therefore I should just rpelace the affected section with plastic?

: You cannot cut it with a cutting torch. All you will do is melt it and have an end that will not be usable with any type of joint device.

: : I'm moving some plumbing aorund underneath my house and have shorten some of the sewer pipes. Should I just cut down the old cast iron and reuse it (yes, have cutting torch available) or should I replace the full length with plastic?
