  • Leaky shower drain

    Hi, I installed a shower in a workshop but I accidently cut the 2" drain pipe under the shower at an angle. It leaked like crazy. I have removed the drain cover and replaced it with a wingtite model and it still leaked. I broke the wingtite removing it and have since ordered another one. My problem is the 2" pipe I cut at an angle. I'm guessing I need to repair that but I'm not sure how to go about doing it. Maybe cutting it straight below the angle cut and gluing an extention to it. I don't have a lot of space to work with and I don't really want to tear the shower down. Any suggestions? Jim

    u can use an internal pipe cutter that fits into a drill chuck and it looks like a throwing star and has a shank that fits into the drill and it cuts the pipe from the inside.... definatly a straight cut it key. you will have to add a coupling and another small piece of abs
