The plumbing coming out of the wall for my showerhead had been leaking at the wall...not a problem, just unscrew it & put some new plumbers tape on the threading.

Well as I went to unscrew it the pipe broke off flush up in the threaded area at the wall.

I was thinking about using a slightly smaller scrap piece or pipe, sliding it inside the broken section and JB Welding it and trying to unsrew it the next day? Could this work? Can I get that broke piece of pipe out of their or where do I go from here?

Thanks,

Mike

What will work is one of the following

1- get a 1/2" extractor (easy out) they call it in most hardware stores

2- Get a hack saw blade gently cut the old threads not to damage the ELL inside the wall threads and then using an old flat screw driver slightly tap the threads where you had cut the threads then with needle nose pliers you can extract the old threads GOOD LUCK

I think I found a local hardware store that has that tool...I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Later,

Good luck please keep me posted , hopefully the extractor will work and remember your using the tool to remove the threads thus backing out the easy out will hopefully grab the threads and remove them out as you turn the extractor to the left.
