    Default replace PVC flange HELP

    I have seen the vid on replacing a broken cast iron flange, found one that slips into a cast pipe and uses an expansion gasket but will not fit into PVC, I am stuck, is there a similar part for a broken PVC flange, the current one is glued with no piece of straight pipe to cut to do a replacement. Tight to the elbow tight to the tee in the soil pipe in the wall from the first floor, we will have to open the ceiling in the kitchen to replace it at this rate, any ideas

    Three choices in this order:

    1. Take your problem to a plumbing supply store(not HD or Lowes) and ask the counter clerks. They have surprising knowledge and solutions to problems.

    2. Open up your kitchen ceiling and DIY.

    3. Hire a professional plumber with lots of experience.

    I have found that the "counter clerks" have been extremely helpful and have an abundance of useful info to share!
    Good luck...

    You need a Pipe Hog (second item on page) or a Ram Bit (third item on page http://www.plumbingsupply.com/pvcsaver.html You may be able to rent one at a tool supply. Use it to clean out the old flange from the elbow and install a new PVC flange.

    The pipe hog is a great tool but it is not cheep. Pasco makes a similar tool that will do the same thing at a lower price. It may not last as long but for your purpose it would be fine. You can find them at a plumbing supply.
