I'm replacing the kitchen cabs. The original sink drain has 2" copper
running horizontal for about 2' where it T's into a 2" copper vent pipe that
runs up along the window and through the roof. The original cabinets had the
drain cutting through the backs of 3 cabinets. I dont want to do this so I
plan to cap off the 2" T as close to the T as I can get. It will project
from the wall a little but this wont interfere with the new cabinets. Then
I'll run a new PVC drain straight down under the sink and connect to the old
drain under the floor in the basement.
I haven't worked with 2" pipe much, anything I should do different than 1/2"
Also, I have to cut a T-Y into the original drain in the basement. I was
sold a BRASS 2" T.
Is there anything special about sweating a brass fitting???
I rip the sink out tonight.
Told the family, plan on no sink for the weekend! Hopefully it wont take
That's why I'm asking about the 2" Brass T. If there's a hold up its going
to be capping off the old drain or cutting the T into the new location in
I cant check this post until I get home tonight so
If there's a reason I should return the brass fitting I need to do it at
lunch. ($16 for the Brass T!)
