Threads On Cast Cleanout Shot


I have a cleanout on the way to the street where the treads are shot. The pipe looks fine but it looks like someone tried to force a cap on a few years back and mangled the fitting's threads.

I cant cut the whole section of pipe out(easily) since it is a pipe that is a pit about 1'x2' and 2 1/2' down. There is no cutting it out without busting a good amoun of the garage floor out.

How can I fix this cleanout? I would prefer a solution that would allow me to still use the cleanout down the road but will accept a solution that seals it out. There is a cleanout fairly close that I can get a snake into so a solution that closes it off would be okay.

Re: Threads On Cast Cleanout Shot


Is it cast or PVC ?

If you get a reduceing bushing maybe you could get that in there even if you grinded the threads and used epoxy steel (if it is cast)to seal it in and got a plug for the smaller size Like 4X3 reduceing bushing you could still get the snake or whatever in the 3 inch

Anyway thats my 2 cents

Your plumber will know what to do.

Otherwise take it to a DIY forum. This is a forum for plumbing professionals.

Since this is not a so called DIY question, and you have lots of post, then you can have a answer from a pro.
