Can anybody help with this? I am installing a new toilet, and the old waste sits about 12 inches form the wall (and about 2 inches above the floor)which is ok for the current toilet. The new style toilets need the pan waste to be closer to the wall. The old pan waste is the ceramic type with a brass top and the exsisting toilet welded into it some how. Is it possible to cut the ceramic type waste pipe (with stihl saw or something) lower down under the floor, so that I can connect a new plastic one into it and fit a new toilet flush with the wall? Hope this makes sense :) Any help is appreciated.
Thanks for that Peter. I am in the trade, but never come across one of these before. It is actually ceramic (or similar material). I have managed to salvage an exact same one from a job today. I am going to try to cut through the scrap one with an angle grinder and then if it goes ok, will do it on the actual one. Luckily there is crawl space under the floor (downstairs toilet). If I can get through it, I can put a preformed 90 degree flexi into it. What do you think? Thanks for reply.
Thanks Peter, that is exactly what it was, got through it with an angle grinder and stone blade - managed to get through my hand a little too :( Got a nice clean finish, and got a flexi on it...all sorted now. Appreciate your help.
