Extending A Toilet 110mm Pipe?


Postby Gordon B » Sun Aug 24, 2008 9:34 am

Hi Everyone,

New to this forum but it seems the place to be for the best advice.

OK, I am in the process of remodeling our En Suite, this includes moving the toilet position through 90 degrees. The outflow for the bathroom and En Suite toilets is in the En Suite and at present has a 180 degree branch, both toilets being on the same outside wall.

I have bought a 90 degree branch to replace the original one which will allow me to place the new toilet on another wall, however, and here is my problem, the "arms" on the original branch are about 5cm longer than the new 90 degree branch, this means that the bathroom toilet pipe will be 5cm short and I have looked everywhere for some kind of extension which will push onto the existing b/room pipe and then (cut to lenth) push into the new branch. The b/room toilet pipe is boxed in and tiled so I have to work from the En Suite so I cant do anything more that push a pipe onto the b/toilet pipe.

Sorry to go on so long but any help will be greatfully received.

Thanks in advance,

Gordon.

Thanks HTG, I was looking for an inline extender rather that an angled one. I may have to use the one you suggested as plan B if I need to replace the entire bathroom toilet pipe and take the box off to get to it.

Otherwise, any other ideas?

Thanks,

Gordon.

Once you start extending using push fit fittings, you will also need to clip the pipes. Once boxed in - if they move, it could be a nightmare to sort out.
