    Seems like no choice but to use the black one. When I read the description for both of them they appear similar and it looks like preference?

    use 2 bands with a pipe inbetween...


    the ridge is the same size as the thickness of the pipe, your thinking to much. that is why i said to cut the pipe then deduct an 1/8" per band

    the two pipes ride on that ridge . :D

    I tried!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Damn! Well the piece I cut out is basically waste because of the cuts in it.. What's the downside of using this black one? No water leaks?

    the inside of your pipe, you want smooth and free of places where crap can get hung up.
    if it is not smooth, a small hair with sticky soap will fall into the crack, then another, another till you have a clog

    by cutting out a section, you have a spot, where you have created a potential hair ball trap.

    your house, do as you see fit

    to fix it, you need to cut a section of pipe out..5' minimum in length. he cut needs to be square. not a crooked snagle tooth cut

    then. you measure the opening, between the pipes. lets say its 6". then you subtrack 1/4" making the cut piece 5 3/4" long

    the 1/4" that is subtracked, is for that little rib you were concerned about earlier, 1/8" subtracted from each end is 1/4" total

    take the pipe you cut. put a rubber on each end, fold the rubber, that goes over the pipe in the wall, back over the cut pipe

    push this pipe and rubbers into the 6" opening . move it around ..fold the rubers down. move it to line it up

    put the bands over the rubber, tighten to 60 ft lbs

    doing it this way, you have no nooks or craneys for hair, poop, soap to acumulate

    If I was you I'd call a reputable plumber, hard to trouble shoot a situation like that. What you'd pay a plumber to repair may be a lot cheaper than you making a bunch of holes, finding the leak and having to call a plumber, drywaller, taper and painter. It's not worth much but it's my two cents.
    Btw.... A good plumber will know where to start looking before making holes
