  • Fitting No-Hub Cast Iron

    I'm replacing some of my ABS drains with no-hub cast iron and I'm stumped at one point. Is there a way to add a short piece of cast iron to connect a wye to a 45? I need to bridge a 1/2" to 3/4" gap.

    Do they make special couplings for adding short pieces of cast? For example, when working with ABS you have a variety of options to glue in short pieces when you have two fittings that are 1/2" or 3/4" apart. Is there a way to do something similar in no-hub cast iron? Or do they make fittings that can be cut to size?

    Thanks.

    cutting fittings is not legal. so basically you need to either get an extended 45 or try possibly a dwv copper fitting that has a shorter take off.

    no they do make longer bands that you can probably add a 1/2'' piece of pipe and still maintain a good 1'' connection including the 1/2'' filler piece. these are referred to as "husky" bands. they are 4 clamps and are 3'' long.

    try that

      Rick,
      Thanks. I think I'll get a Husky coupling and add the short section of pipe. That seems like a perfect solution.
