In response to Re: Moving Bathroom Sink
: I'm moving the bathroom sink to a different wall and I have a cast iron drain in place at the original location. It would be impossible to tie back into the original drain without cutting the cast iron (which I don't have the skill to do). Would it be ok to tie the sink drain into the 4-inch toilet drain and if so, do they have pvc connectors to do this (the sink drain is 1-1/2 in)? Also, is there a fitting made to cap off the original cast iron drain?

The sink is going to need to be vented. It may be able to be connected to the toilet drain. It will, however, need to be connected to the toilet drain and not the toilet trap arm--two very different things.
If you do not have the skill to cut the cast iron, I am wondering about the ability to plumb and vent this sink correctly. The sink must be vented.
