I have a chrome plated P - Trap under an exposed bathroom sink.
Need to replace the P Trap and trap to wall extension as a piece of
corroded thread from the P Trap managed to broken off in the compression
nut. Far as I can tell the extension just goes into the wall pipe and has
been sealed with plumbers putty for the past 15 years or so.
P Trap is removed...... I tried using a pipe wrench on the extension...won't
budge. Tried some caulk remover and some bolt spray... pipe still won't
budge from the wall. This is the 22 gauge slip in type of pipe.
What's the easiest way to remove the slip in extension from the wall pipe.
Do they sell a strap wrench for additional gripping of the extension.
Should I cut the extension off close to the pipe, then make a cut
or two on the remaining piece and try to pull it away from the wall
Should I not worry about cutting back the extension and just use
a chisel or punch to break it free from the pipe...(without hammering
on the pipe).
At least one thing works in my favor... the wall connection is
Thanks in advance for your help.
