    I'm looking for the right way to support 3" cast iron or PVC pipe that is run vertically in a wall that is not close to a stud, maybe 6" away from the stud. Do you support from above where it goes horizontal or is there another way to support it? Is there a difference between PVC and cast iron? Thanks.

    In a wall with 2x5 studs on 16 inch centers? You could probably figure out how to support the wings on a riser clamp. I am not a plumber.

    [​IMG] You can also get pipe clamps that go onto strut, but that might need a thicker wall.

    A riser clamp located where the pipe goes through each floor is a good start. Riser clamps can be installed below any bell and through-bolted and lagged to adjacent wall studs with heavy steel strapping.
