Kindly link thread and any jerkoff comments below.

Someone told me over in the cesspool of social media I turned up missing around here.

Evening gentlemen.

And harmony.

This took a lot of time, money and aggravation today. Any plumbers on the air? I have questions.

What happened with your plumbing? Kitchen Waste line?
118 year old house. Every piece of copper is in some state of about to leak. Waste line had a slow drip. Figured would be a good time to get my hands dirty. Boy did I ever. Ended up replacing much more line than I thought and it didn’t go nearly as smooth as I thought it would. Got it done in the end, but took a few hours and 3 trips to Home Depot.

Solder joint let go or the copper thinned out to the point of perfing?

Joisey or Bron X?

Pipe cutters. Like WTF. There seems to be no commercially available low profile pipe cutter. The standard twist and turn one couldn’t even get half way around this pipe where I needed to cut. Ended up sawsalling a lot of it. Don’t know if that is the right way to do it but that got the damn pipe out of the ceiling. Was off by a solid half inch in pvc measurements. Tried to cut in place. That was dumb and quite difficult. Also, old houses have all kinds of weird shit. This pipe went thru a wall that had a custom fixture the pipe went thru inside of the wall. Needless to say, I had to cut that hole bigger because 2” is not 2” in plumbing world.

I think copper just got old and shitty. Every time I went to cut it just kept splitting worse. This place is in NJ.

Yup. I can’t keep calling a handyman every time I get a pinhole in come copper pipe. This stuff ain’t hard. It’s just a matter of learning and doing.

Next step, replace the entire line with PVC. Even if I do a little each week, it’ll get done and hopefully outlive me.
