Connecting to the underground mains drains

Postby Flashfire » Mon Mar 26, 2007 9:40 pm


I am building a downstairs bathroom and need to conect to the drainage fitted during a recent new build extension. The main drain runs directly below (in the dolomite) where the shower is to be fitted but I'm not sure how to connect the drain from the shower tray into the 6" drain before I pour in the concrete floor.

Can I use the same fitting that goes into vertical vent pipes using a saddle conector with an adhesive or is there a special conection?
