I am doing over an apartment and the previous tenant had so much junk
hanging on the shower neck that it broke off in the wall...Trid EEZ out
but i bottomed out on the down elbow. Any ideas aside from cutting out
the wall and replacing the whole mess ? Thanks. HOWIE
Nothing against you for wanting to do for yourself, but I think in this case
better off calling a plumber. I could tell you how I'd remove the nipple but it
won't help you. Sometimes knowledge is not enough. Plumbing isn't brain
but it's an acquired skill just the same.
Use a sawsall with a fine, short metal cutting blade. Make careful, not too
cuts at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock. Pop out the top segment with a sharp, narrow
chisel. Using the chisel, bend in the remaining free ends and the nipple should
loose enough to spin or pull out.
