Cast Iron stack in ground floor flat.


Postby gravy » Thu Nov 29, 2007 4:22 pm

If any one can give me some general advice I would be very grateful.

Is it possible to buy brass fittings/adapters to accomadate 40mm/32mm plastic waste. The problem is the stack in the flat is cast iron and with one of the outlets very close to the floor. I appreciate that normally it is best to convert to a plastic stack. I am worried to do this as it is the ground floor of 4 floors of flats and I have heard that it is illegal to have a plastic stack in a flat, especially the ground flat due to the weight of the stack.

Also the toilet is in the next room with a 90 degree bend. Is it correct to assume this connects to the stack below ground level or would there be a seperate outlet as it is the ground floor flat.

Many thanks in advance.

Plastic is ok for soil stacks for flats.

We have done a few of them on new builds in the last six months and most where over 5 floors.

The adaptors you are looking for are made from rubber; they look like “plugsâ€

Dear peter the plumber,

Many thanks indeed for answering my question, you have taken a load off my mind. I went to the local plumbers merchants and they said a boss was not available.

May I take this opportunity to wish you every success and happiness in everything you do.

Thanks again.
