How to Break into a Soil Pipe

Postby aiddy » Sun Apr 19, 2020 6:53 pm

Hi, I after some advise if possible, I'm putting in a second bathroom in my house, to add the new soil pipe I would ideally like to run it underground rather than across the middle of the back of the house.
I've dug down around the existing soil pipe and I'd like to put a t-piece directly into the light brown pipe that's just visible.
How can I do this?
If I was to simply cut a section out of the darker brown pipe to fit in the tee, I cant see how I'd be able to get them to go together. Is there a better solution?
Also, the existing tee that's in the picture can be removed as the grey pipe that going up goes nowhere.
Thanks in advance

Simply Build It

Hi Aiddy,
Cut through the dark brown pipe about 100mm above the light brown collar. Get a T with female/female/male ends ( you may have to shop round for one that will fit in the space you have) and cut the pipe again to suit this new T. Fit a rubber coupling on the lower pipe and the T, slide the collar up and do up the clamp rings.
