High Level Flush Pipe for High Level Toilet

Postby LostInPlumbing » Wed Jun 06, 2018 10:30 am


We have bought a high level toilet which we're hoping to install in the eaves in our house - the pan would be at a place where it's possible to stand comfortably and the intention was for the toilet flush pipe to swing out to the side so that the cistern could be in a slightly higher point in the eaves to get the necessary fall. In other words the cistern would not be directly above the pan but a little to the right (and above, of course!)

We've bought a Burlington 'angled pipe' (super-expensive) but realised to our horror that it angles out too far, placing the cistern in the shower! We were up for something a bit bonkers but not that bonkers!

We're therefore wondering whether there's an easy way to get or make a pipe which angles/bends but only moves the pan about 300-400mm to the side? I guess we could bend some 35mm copper and get it chromed but goodness knows when, where or how that could be done. It's for an indoor bathroom so ideally it would be chrome but at this point I'd seriously consider painting plastic!

Does anyone know of any ready-made pipe that would just swing the cistern out a bit or a way of making something that's going to be within the grasp of a competent plumber.

Any advice would be incredibly gratefully received as we've now planned the whole bathroom layout around this mad idea!

All the best!
