Hoping for some advice,
I need to remove a 40mm waste pipe that enters my stack pipe in preparation
of changing the routing of it.
The 40mm pipe is solvent weld and it appears to be solvent weld into the
stack pipe branch as well.
Is there a preferred method to remove?
I am reluctant to just heave on it as I wish to reuse the branch entry and
don't want to break it.
Thats what I was afraid of !!
I'll attempt to remove, worst case I'll have to put a new branch in.
Thought there might be some magic fluid that could be applied to eat the
Just a though, as you want to reuse the branch I am assuming you will
be using 40mm pipe again so what about cutting the original pipe off
leaving enough to fit on a 40mm straight connector.
yes that is what I have done in the past, cut back as far as I can and then
The problem I have with this job is that there is a 90 degree solvent weld
joint going up vertically almost as soon as it leaves the branch.
I want to do similar but I want mine to go horizontally.
It may be easier to just replace the branch.
What I don't know is, is whether I can push the stackpipe up to give me the
clearance to remove, without doing some harm to where it exits through the
That is one place I don't want to go!!!
