Morning All,

I'm trying to cut 2 branches into a 65mm (2.5") LCC cast iron down pipe but I am working to 2 fixed points. Does anyone know where I might get a cast iron slip coupling to help me out. I know I could use a flex seal but it is all in show and the company we are doing the work for wants to see cast iron only.

Thanks in advance for any responses or suggestions.

Are these Timesaver branches or LCC branches you're proposing to use?..if Timesaver then you won't require a slip coupling.

Is LLC light weight cast iron then?? It not a term that was used here. 2 1/2" could be light or heavy. Heavy was roped & run, we used Ropers & Stavers. We used a hammer & staver on the moulten lead run joint. Just another craft lost to the Plastic Plumbers. Which suits the course cowboys & career change chancers.

Cutting in a branch in a cast iron downpipe you'd half-slip two joints.
