  • How would I got about doing this?

    Hello everyone,

    I’m new to the form. I have a quick question; I’m getting ready to redo my bathroom and laundry room. I wanted to know if anyone has ever done a transition from black iron to pvc. Or if anyone knows of a web site that shows and explains it step by step. If anyone has any info please email me at darkhour_000@yahoo.com.

    Thanks all

    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      if it is a pressure connection, you can buy a threaded pvc adapter that screws into a fitting(Male Iron pipe x pvc coupling)` or that screws onto a threaded piece of pipe ( femle iron pipe x pvc coupling)

          Fernco or Mission bands would be a good option. This is under the assumption that the "black iron" you are refering to is actually "cast iron", which it must be because black iron would not be used for water or waste.
