Can anyone help ? I want to put a toilet upstairs in my house ( main bath and toilet downstairs ) but I am unable to connect the new soil pipe to the existing one so how do I go about connecting the soil to the main sewer pipe?
I can run a pipe under ground to the main sewer at the back of my house but do I need an inspection chamber and how do I fit the soil pipe to the sewer?
Look forward to your replies
If you are going to connect to a main sewer you must get BR involved.
You will probably need to install a new inspection chamber if there is not one at the proposed connection point.
How about using a saniflo unit so you can connect in 1 1/2" pipe?
You need to get buildign regs involved however you connect the toilet to the drainage system as a toilet is a "controlled fitting" and unless it is installed by a qualified person who is signed up to a self cerficiation scheme you must make a BRegs application.
