comment Can I use a PVC cleanout plug in a Cast Iron Cleanout?
I ended up having to cut the pipe, something further downstream got damaged--the original install was a major kludge job--so I had to replace more iron anyway. The grit blade/reciprocating saw took 5-10 minutes a cut, but it was a long 10 minutes.

I can rent one for $23/day, $50/week. So that's a little easier on the wallet.

Its the stack for the upstairs bathroom, but it's upstream and above the stack for the downstairs bathroom. I'm thinking that the best way to pull the old plug is going to be to drill/cut near the edge and pull out the center, then try to heat/break the remaining ring.
