Need help from any of the plumbing experts

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...2262855&type=3

I can't get this Y trap under my kitchen sink to budge at all and I need to remove it. There is a hole in the bottom of it.

Any ideas that won't damage the in wall piping? Should I just call a plumber?

If I end up driving that way, send me a schematic and I'll do your surgery too.

you can cut it off at the wall, then notch the nipple in the tee in the wall with your sawzall, chisel it out, and then re-tap the fitting and then go from there with material of your choice.
or you can open the wall and cut tee out of wall and then slip in a couple fernco couplers or no-hub cast iron couplers with a new tee.
of course you could order some leakender 2000 off tv, that tv stuff is always good.

That's what we had to do in his upstairs bathroom several years ago.

I'd be surprised if you couldn't fit a blade back there to cut it off. At most it looks as if you may need to cut an inch maybe of wallboard around the existing pipe for extra space to reach a wrench in there to tighten the clamp on a coupler.

You guys seriously crack me up. You tools took a $50 fix and made it into a thousands of dollars plumbing job.

if the hole is clean and solid, just take a wire brush to it and use to clean the hole good. Mix up JB WELD, and stuff it in the hole, smoothing the inside out, and leaving a health amount on the exterior. Let it cure. Test for leaks. If it leaks, call a plumber. If not, you spent $15 and saved hundreds.
