    Default Removing lead pipe from cast iron waste line

    I have lead elbow leading from base of toilet (no flange) to the cast iron waste line. I need to know how to safely remove the lead elbow, so I can rebuild the waste line with a flange to properly mount the toilet.

    Your help is urgently requested

    The lead is relatively soft, and you will be able to peel it out of the cast iron hub using a large screw driver, pry bar, etc. This will not create dust or fumes that you need to worry about.

    Keep the kids from handling it.

    Wear gloves.
