: Hi everyone:

: A week ago or so I asked some questions regarding fixing the cast iron drain for my toilet. After reading the answers from this site, I decided it was a job for a pro.

: I'm so glad I went that direction. The plumber was able to save all the cast iron pipe, replacing only the flange, and re-sealing the join in the basement. This was a repair I couldn't possibly have done myself, as I simply don't have the tools or knowledge to work with lead.

: While we were at it, we decided to replace the old toilet (original 1964 high flow) with a Toto Drake. So far, we're very happy.

: Thanks to all who responded to my posts!

: -A little poorer, but with a working toilet, in Michigan

At least you knew when to draw the line between a DIY job and when to call in a pro. Better off this way then to get knee deep, then have to make the call.
