  • drum trap in CI

    leaking some tried to fix it before these people bought the house. still leaks. the old one that was in there was abs as well. i tried to put 2 different abs screw plugs in and they both leaked. the threads really didn't match. usually i see a brass plug in there. this is a 3 inch one.
    i guess i'm asking if i go back on this call from hell. long story....... what's the best way to take care of this and at this point replacing it with a p trap is not in the cards for them right now.

        If it is a drum trap, you could use a 3" or 4" fernco test cap as a temporary seal for the drum trap.

          I always use the drum trap plugs with the flange and rubber gasket. I do prefer the solid brass ones verses the chrome plated pot metal crap.

              I never service them, always cut them out. Try to explain the cost savings of immediate remedy vs. short term.

                Same here, I Love getting those calls. One no hub band, one pvc trap, one good metal cutting blade, maybe a couple fittings, done. Also, we couldn't put in another drum trap in Minnesota if we wanted too, they are illegal to install now in Minnesota, makes for an easy sell for sure.
