    Darn naff building pipe into wall, but it was done a lot years ago.

    A DC1 should fit straight into the cast iron pipe where white plastic pipe is,the best plan would be replace the lot with plastic.

    If they've tried to connect a BSP adapter into that, my guess is the thread is chewed. When they dip CI, it leaves a residue in the thread. Not a prob metal to metal but it kills plastic. You need to re-tap the thread to clear out the dip before screwing in the plastic.
