I was unable to sleep and was sitting here trying to figure out what to do with this mystery pipe that was sticking up in the middle of my floor with a screw cap:
I posted an additional thread to get specific advice (http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1021255
), and based on encouragement from Bull1962, carboranadum, wkearney99, and others... I figured WTH and got a bigger hammer!
As soon as I hit a 2x4 against the side of the cap, the outside ring shattered
and this is what it looked like:
Next I got the biggest Snapon screwdriver I had and a gasket scraper (the 2 seated perfectly in the X and held eachother in place) and torqued on it until the cap unscrewed!
I was not prepared for what happened next...JUST KIDDING!!!
actually the cap twisted off and this is what resulted:
I can definately say it is a cleanout now and I definately see a Y down at the bottom. I experimented and ran the water throughout the house and it appears to be the pipe coming from the laundry room by the garage.
After inspecting the cap and pipe further, I noticed that the threaded peice was very thin and just glued to the inside diameter of the sewer pipe!!!
I put it all back together for the night and I now plan on grinding down the concrete level and buying a new cap setup tomorrow and glue this mother in!
DOWN GOES THE MYSTERIOUS PIPE FROM HELL!!!!!!!!!!!

I in fact thought I smelled something bad a few minutes ago... it took me a second or two, but I then realized I kicked off my grubby work sneakers underneath the table to update this thread
