    Re: use oiled oakum with bonding putty to seal cast iron hub?

    Liquid epoxy is used to anchor rebar into drilled concrete to anchor an existing concrete slab to a new pour.....Epoxy is some badazz stuff. If I was a homeowner I would be searching for some lead wool,its cheaper and will work just fine.

        To the OP: Please post a picture of the pipe in question and we can give you better advice.

        3" cast iron is rare around me. 4" is most common and 2" is also typical. Not that I don't believe you/

        what fixtures will this pipe serve and how many?

        Is it horizontal or vertical?

        Is there piping downstream of the hub exposed? (if so, why not just cut the hub off and use an No-Hub coupling?) Is this hub at the floor?

        Do you know for certain where this pipe drains to?

        What material are you trying to transition to? it sounds like 2" PVC? Why not pour a 3" joing or use a 3" gasket and then reduce down to 2" with a reducing coupling or bushing?

        Plumbing is problem solving, and like most problems there is often MULTIPLE ways to achieve the same end result. It's just a matter of practicality.


        uh, pictures please!!

        Not trying to be condescending, just trying make sure that you've contemplated all the variables
