Looking at steamer replacement today... I saw this double tee/ wye fitting. I'm thinking it would help w bullheading....

    Try to find those anymore. They still make them up to 1" I think but that's about all I've seen.

    I believe that is a cast Iron drainage fitting

    I'm thinking it needs to be busted out of there. :)

    That isn't a drainage fitting. It's meant for exactly what it's being used for. It's a workaround a bullheaded tee. I actually started a thread a month ago inquiring about them and if they are still produced.
