Cast to 1950ís house on one side. Clay on other. 30 foot of clay with dual sweeps on far end. Clay is clean and straight. Cracked joint going into cast with root intrusion. Enjoy

Re: What Would You Do ... ?


I had a similar situation at my own house, the cast pipe was joined to the terracotta pipe with what looked like a big wad of grout.

I cut back the pipes, measured their dimensions then went to a local plumbing supplier that had a commercial water works department. I sat in the guys office with my note pad of dimensions and a few minutes later he came back with the most odd looking fernco style fitting I've ever seen....and it was damn near perfect.

Yeah, thatís what I hear. Tempted to cut off 5 ft, have the ci sweep through all the clay relined, put in dual sweeps, but then pack the abs with Oakum and soil-o into the cast. Then salt it heavy. Have a tough time thinking about that Fernco in the ground on 4 inch.

The fernco I had went from something 4" to 9.5" and joined the clay right to the cast.

Dig back four feet in both directions of the wye, snap the pipe on both and install a new clay wye and new clay pipe and 3 mission couplings, should take about three hours to have it ready for the inspector.
