I live in a two story home that was built in 1965 and discovered a leak that was damaging the ceiling in the family room on the first floor. I opened the ceiling and found that the elbow connected the the second floor bathroom drain pipe had been replaced using two straight pieces of rubber hose, four clamps and an elbow joint made from PVC. I assume that the original cast iron elbow had failed and the previous owners attempted to repair the pipe as best they could. I am wondering if there is a better way to fix the pipe, I have no problem doing it myself unless it requires a real plumber. I am trying to be as mindful as I can about cost.
Thanks for any resposes in advance
