This is ok?...haven't heard this from anything I come across in my research. I pretty much figured I would replace a brass plug with a brass plug. Being able to replace with a PVC plug does provide more options.replace it with a pvc threaded plug.
This is what I figured as well...based on my experience with non-powered metal snakes. Thanks for mentioning.you are going to play hell getting that snake around three 90 degree turns
Yes. LolWell you found an excellent example as to how NOT to back fill around a buried pipe line.
This was pretty much the plan I was going to go with.Secondly, as you already suspected based on some of your previous comments and concerns, DON'T get too carried away with smashing that cleanout plug.
You may be alright with smashing it but who knows how that may affect the integrity of that leaded joint, etc.
To be safe, you could very easily drill (or chisel) a series of holes around that nut to allow you to remove it with less force. Then cut towards the threads in a couple of places to allow you to collapse edges to allow you to crush the perimeter of that thread quite easily.
This is my preferred method for including photos in forum threads...but the forum software settings do not allow for this...when the "image" icon is clicked on...the only option given for a photo is via URL. Thus the photo needs to be hosted on the internet.If my some remote chance you have a desire to upload photos you should simply upload directly from your computer or device.
Thanks. Originally they were fuzzy/blurry due to the photo hosting site...but after figuring out how to upload them in a different manner...replaced them last night with clear versions.All your pics that I see are clean and clear.
Good quality, well lit, and nicely framed.
So keep doing whatever you are doing, your images are already better than most others.
