Soil pipe fittings

Postby GDPAMG » Tue Dec 09, 2008 3:39 pm


I'm looking for some advice on suitable fittings for the setup in this little ensuite.

The current toilet (cistern pictured) will be removed along with the soil pipe up to the point of the t-piece (circled red). The pipe coming through the wall is from the toilet in the main bathroom so will remain.

So question 1: can I just cap off the t-piece or do I need to replace it with a bend?

Secondly, the proposed position for the new toilet is where the sink currently is, so question 2: Would I be able to fit a t-piece on the blue circled section for the new toilet, or is this not suitable?

Simply Build It

Yes you can cap off the tee with a socket plug. ... -Plug-Grey

Then fit the new tee as you describe.

One point to mention when fitting the new toilet, try and make sure it is slightly higher than the existing soil so any flushed water will pass by and not enter the new bowl.
