Hole in exterior wall around waste pipe

Postby Fatboab » Mon Dec 17, 2007 2:58 pm

HI, I recently had my toilet moved but the problem is I've a hole (gap) around the waste pipe on the exterior wall. This means the toilet is very cold. I'm not good at diy but can follow instructions - do I just fill in gap with paper or something and then cement over ???

Buy a cannister of foam, spray into the cavity, when dry it can be cut back, then rendered over
