 Brass plug for cast iron septic pipe
Author: murphy law (IL)

I have a cast iron septic pipe in my basement. The plug was a 1/4 or 1/2 turn locking cap. All I can find is the threaded type or an expansion plug. Does anyone know the proper name for this style pug/ cap? The old one leaked and I seem to remember there were two sizes, but because I couldn't get a replacement right away, I just bought a rubber cap that fits over the whole flange. I finally have time to research this but I no longer can find the plug and nothing comes up on my searches.

I've never seen one either until this house. Unfortunately I no longer have the plug and I'll have to clean the fitting to show the lock. I was really hoping someones seen one of these. It is a Wausau house but IDK if they had anything to do with the tank and field built in 1976. Apparently a single builder built several Wausau homes in the area.
