I'm about to install a new Macerator unit in a downstairs cloakroom and was planning on using the waste pipe from the previous unit. The problem is the old UPVC 22mm has broken off inside the elbow joint that goes into the wall.
Does anyone know the best way to remove the broken part of the 22mm pipe without damaging the existing elbow joint? I'd rather not have to dig out the wall to replace the whole section.
Pic attached to show how the pipe has broken. Thanks in advance for any advice! Dan
Hi rosedani, The only chance of success is to replace the bend. Using a hacksaw blade (not junior) make a number of cuts along the line of the pipe through the bend collar only. Use a screwdriver to prise the cuts apart and hopefully you will end up with a pipe you can fit a new bend onto. Regards S
