    Re: Should I do this job?

    That looks like fun. Nothing like a little challenge. One of two choices either tear up the upstairs tile, or find a place to chop a big hole in the ceiling beneath. I'm thinking I would rather tear up tile and tell him he has to start all over again. Better yet tell him to rip up the tile, backer board, and OSB, then you will come fix it, and he can do it all over a second time. Thats what happens when people get in a hurry and worry more about the cosmetics of things.
    Distractions are everywhere, don't lose sight of your dream.

      What little I do know about construction, I would know to run like hell.

      Too much easy work out there for the same money and without hassles. He'll want a warranty but he wont't want to pay......

      Sounds like something you definitely want to avoid.

          Yes, you should do the job if they are willing to meet your price and schedule.

              Just screw the WC to the flooring over the hole then caulk around it real good.

                That's exactly how I would do it!

                  I spose you could cut some sheet lead and solder it to the existing ell if you could make a roundish part. Then just solder your new lead to a brass flange.

                  I had to do this exact repair in a school last year. Looked very similar to what your up against. I think I spent about 2 hours cutting and soldering. Wish I woulda took a photo. Not ideal but, it does make a good repair.

                    Well just to follow-up, I couldn't muster the spirit to take on such a job.


                    One of you mentioned the depth of the bottom of that lead. That right there would lead you and I to believe that when they poured that inset floor, that cast iron is embedded in it.


                    That would mean you're smashing a floor up to get to the piping, now enters a whole new parameter of difficulty and a guy that keeps walking into the room asking "How much is this going to cost?" every 20 minutes by the noises I'd be making.

                    He never responded to my email, which I took as a Christmas present. I funneled quite a few calls the past few weeks and just spun off anything I didn't want, or sounded like a customer who's hedging on economical boundaries.

                    I've mentioned this before but all I care about is a week's worth of work, each week, that's it. This all changes next year, les than 10 days from now.
