I live in a bungalow with concrete floors and would like to fit a new close-coupled WC (are there any other more traditional types availalbe?).
The problem is that the eartherware connection to the sewer rises through the concrete floor about 10-15cm too far from the wall for a simple connection to the new WC, and would actually sit under the base of the new WC if it were fitted as things are currently arranged.
I do not want to pack the back of the cistern at all, let alone that much.
I have yet to remove the old WC but would it be possible to carefully remove the current earthenware pipe and to use a flexible WC connector that I then concreted back into the floor?
