I have a 40 year old house with brass clean out plugs in the drain pipes. Any tips on how to free these plugs after 40 years?

I am NOT a plummer but thought I might offer a helpful suggestion.


If your able to use a small hand held propane shop torch, apply heat around the plug. The heat, will help to expand the pipe away from the plug and then you can attempt to break it loose.

Hope my two cents worth helps.

Good Luck
