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?

I didn't see a photo.

What material is the pipe?

Plastic? Cut it out and replace it.

Metal? Replace the under sink pipe with plastic.

Yeah, checking with a local friend that used to be a plumber in the morning. If he doesn't want to mess with it then I will call my plumber. If he exceeds phobia's price suggestion then I am taking Phobia up on his offer.

Why do you need to remove it? What exactly are you trying to do?

There is a hole in the bottom of it now so it needs replaced. But the damn thing won't budge.

cut it off, flexibile hose/coupler clamped on

anyone that charges you more than $50-60 for that simple job is taking advantage

Not much space between the wall and the fitting to a) cut it off and b) fit the coupler on to the existing pipe. You're going to have to rip out a lot of wallboard to gain access. If a plumber had that problem in his own home, he'd pay you $60 for that "simple job" in a heartbeat.

If you are already getting leaks in the cast iron I think your very best (but not cheap) method is to remove all of the cast iron to the main stack and put in PVC.

Seriously cast iron lasts a very long time but if its rusted thru / leaking remove it all now or suffer for years to come.

Yeah, messing with 1 fitting usually leads to multiple problems with cast iron. Best to bite the bullet now and remove it all if possible
