Pipe fragments fell into dry return
I was chiseling out broken thread on old main vent riser and it fell into the pipe. About 3 or 4 fragments. Is this gonna lodge somewhere and clog system? Happened right before Hartford loop.
What size pipe and how big are the fragments?
It probably will never cause an issue0
2 inch . 1/4 of thread on a 1 inch bushing0
Magnets could be your friend.0
If you can't retrieve it easily I wouldn't worry about it. Or wait until summer to dismantle. I doubt it will cause a problem0
