 Laundry Room Sink Pipe Removal
Author: gidge (AZ)

How do I remove what could have been piping for a laundry room sink? I have 2 pipes called “stub outs” and a PVC pipe.
Need recommendations on caps as well. Trying to put in laundry room cabinets. Thank you!

The two pipes called stub outs are for hot and cold water. You didn't mention if they have valves, but if they don't and they are dry then they are disconnected or valved elsewhere. The larger PVC pipe is a drain and therefore a path for sewer gas to enter the home.

I removed a utility sink and installed shelves recently. I capped the two valves with brass caps and teflon tape. I capped the sewer connection with a Fernco DWV rubber cap with a hose clamp. These unused connections sit at the back of two of the shelves, unseen.
