Hello, DannyM, please be aware that this is a UK site and, as mentioned below, our methods and materials are not the same as yours. You will probably do better talking to people nearer home.

If the stack is 4" you can use a strap boss made for 110mm Upvc pipe. It will need silicone sealant instead of solvent cement. The biggest job is drilling the hole. I use a 59mm Starret hole saw that cuts fine on a low speed. A good batery drill is the easiest but it will need an 1/2" chuck.

If Danny is really in the US, methods will be different. I know because I spent time over the stock in a plumbers merchant while having a day off from skiing in Colorado. (Seemed such a shame to waste the whole time sliding downhill icon_wink.gif )

All the plastic bosses I've noticed on CI pipes have leaked eventually - including the ones I tried!
