      I replumbed a home built in 1927. The vert. stack crumbled. dried out. Doesn't get the moisture like the the horizontal.

        Done some remodeling at the coast that you could crumble the bell in your hand. But.....that WAS the coastline with sea air.

          Don't forget "Liberty" pipe produced during the second world war. It was incredibly thin. I've seen many vertical Liberty pipe stacks fail.
          NoHub spun pipe seemed to have the most failures too.

            Update.The plumber tells me the pipe i.d. was something like 2 3/4" so he had quite a bit*h getting a mission band on.He did it but it was on a perfect fit but it didn't leak.
            In his words..."Looked like a child had a go at the band!"

              Was that at a transition point? CI to PVC or ABS?

              Thanks.

                    Just curious if they used a PVC transition fitting along with the mission band. If not you can get the "kink" alot of times.

                      The cast I see split is usually vertical. The last one I repaired was from a circa 1900 vintage house, the split was in the first floor, but there were two floors on above it. What a mess.

                        Usually only see splits in Service Weight. Rarely ever in Xheavy. USually splits down a seem, mostly on horizontal. I think that the installer is usually to blame. Either not enough hangers, or improperly hung putting too much stress on the pipe.

                        Sometimes weather has an impact if the seem was weak to begin with.
