Connect Trap to Waste Pipe Inlet and 40mm Push Fit Waste Pipe


Postby Cymrodor » Tue Sep 23, 2014 6:10 pm

Bottle traps appear to be designed to connect directly to the waste plug of the basin or whatever with a thread that the trap nut screws onto. However, I want to connect the trap inlet to the end of a 40mm push fit waste pipe, which doesn't have a thread. What am I to do?

Simply Build It

There are several options, but the easiest is to purchase an adjustable height trap and remove the section that fits to the underside of the basin and replace it with a standard piece of push-fit waste.

As it happens, I also have a telescopic bottle trap for another purpose and while waiting for a reply here I had a look at it and discovered exactly what you suggest. Always nice to have a second opinion confirm a plan's a good one. Diolch.

Great you solved the problem.

It is also possible to make a washing machine trap from an ordinary "P" trap.
