|In response to Re: Removing cast iron drain line|
A trap in the wall would normally indicate a washing machine connection. No lavatory connects to a concealed trap.
: The supply lines will be removed when we run new supply lines to replace her galvanized supply lines. However, I am wondering what to do about the cast iron waste line. It runs from that sink (or where that sink used to be) down to the main drain line. Nothing else runs into the line.
: Can I cut it and cap it, or is there some other way it must be removed? If I can cut it, how do I cut it? I read a post here where the poster mentioned that he rented the device needed to cut the cast iron. Would a hacksaw work?
: I have no idea why the previous owner removed the sink, but I do find it odd that he left the drain line there with the trap. I haven't checked, but I assume he somehow plugged the trap to keep sewer gas from coming up.
: Anyway, thanks, in advance, for all of your help.
