WC Connector


Postby happyguy » Sun Sep 14, 2008 9:39 pm

Hi,

Really silly question from a complete novice here. I'm going to attempt to change my existing bathroom suite. I have bought B & Q's cheapest suite, The "Barcelona" and I was wondering which WC connector I need to use?

The WC has around 45mm of ceramic coming off the back of the pan for the connector to attach to and my soil pipe is of the type that goes into the floor at a 90 degree angle. I am going to have to box behind the WC so was also wondering about a question mark shaped pipe??

Thanks

Screwfix do a wide range of pan connectors, and one end fits directly on to the outlet of all models of toilet pan. It is just a question of choosing the type required to get where you need to go.

Common connectors available are:- Straight, offset, angled, right angled, swan neck (? shape) and flexible. All are designed to connect pans to the internal of standard 4" soil pipe without any further fittings or sealants.
