Soil Pipe Leak on Toilet After Laying Vinyl Flooring in Bathroom

Postby Zacccc » Sun Jul 26, 2015 12:50 pm

I want to lay vinyl flooring in the bathroom so I unscrewed the toilet bowl so as to be able to slide the vinyl underneath but in so doing I've obviously disturbed something because I've now got a leak. The leak is where the 90mm pipe from the toilet pan goes into the 110mm outlet soil pipe. The trouble is that the 90mm pipe goes into the 110mm at a slight angle, which is why I've got the problem, I think.

In the Screwfix catalogue I've seen a 90 degree Flexible Connector (p.484) that looks like it might do the trick but I'm puzzled because the end that would go into the external soil pipe is concertinaed so I can't see how it would go into the soil pipe. Can anyone advise please. Thanks.
