Replacing a Damaged Section of Threaded Pipe
Replacing a section of threaded pipe (pipe that is screwed onto a fitting) is not nearly as difficult as you might imagine thanks to the wide assortment of threaded sections of pipe that are now standard inventory at most hardware stores or home-improvement centers. These "pre-fab" sections come in various diameters and lengths. Furthermore, many stores custom cut and thread a section of pipe in the event a stock item is not available. This prevents the do-it-yourselfer from having to rent or purchase a costly set of iron pipe cutting and threading tools.
