Forum Title: Unscrewing corroded nipple from sanitary tee
Trying to crank it off but no luck. Don't want mess up the rest of the dwv. Is there thread breaker you guys recommend? Or propane torch? On a separate note when I thread on the new nipples do I need to use plumbers putty or plumbers tape? Thanks

By using the propane torch, will I damage the rubber inside the no-hub couplings connecting the santee to the drain and vent?

Torch it up I wouldn't recommend using plumber's putty I would use pipe dope
