comment What type/thickness of drywall should be used in water heater closet?
Fun fact - here in California, we sometimes put the water heater OUTSIDE - often in a little shed built onto the outside garage wall. They even make prefab little metal sheds for this purpose.

comment How do you replace a section of cast iron drain pipe?
@mcktimo - ugh, well hopefully you can get it out by hook or by crook, and then a standard threaded ABS fitting will work (use plenty of joint compound aka pipe dope, which is teflon impregnated putty that will seal the threads)
