    Hi,
    I have a soil pipe which runs up the side of the house through a single story lean-to.
    I have the common problem of the lean-to roof leaking where the soil pipe passes through. What can I do to repair this problem as the standard rubber boot has to be installed from the top and I was trying to avoid removing the stack. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem without removing the stack?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for this. Is a split boot the right way to go or am I putting off the inevitable and I should be replacing the stack. That said, can't seem to find a suitable split boot for a concrete tiled roof. Is there anyone out there who can point me in the direction of a suitable one?
    thanks....

    Mines a cast iron stack, can this still be cut with the appropriate tool?
