    Default Re: removing a rusty heating pipe

    If the pipe is in the middle of a run, cut it in half with a sazall and remove the two pieces. Install the male end of a male/female union into one side an get a new pipe the right length and put the female side on the pipe and install the pipe then connect the union together and tighten. If you can't find a male /female union get a standard female female union and two pieces of pipe to fit the opening.
