Seal up a toilet waste hole?

Postby chopperb » Fri Feb 27, 2009 10:22 am


I've removed an old toilet unit and I am left with just a hole that goes to the main waste underground. Does anyone know if there is just a push fit cap I can use to plug the waste hole?
My alternative would be to somehow fill the hole with a cement cap (I thought about putting something like a cloth over the whole, then some quick drying cement (making sure the towel does not fall down the mains waste itself and causing all sorts of problems for me and the neigbours, once set trim off the edges of the towel). The latter seems a bit dangerous to me and if I ever wanted to put a toilet in that space in the future, it might mean more work.
Help and advice needed.

Simply Build It

You can get something like ... te-Adaptor

that will block the hole and then you can cement over it.

It is not a wise idea to use any material like rag that can decay. The hole must be blocked properly to prevent odours seeping through.
