Hi all

I'm replacing a toilet, the water supply is from the side and tee's into a supply pipe which is behind the soil stack. There isn't room to cut the vertical pipe to remove the tee and the horizontal pipe has been bent to supply the toilet making it impossible to to put a push fit or olive fitting to blank it off. Any suggestions of how to blank the pipe?

rip it out and start again and if you can't do that go into IT and leave the plumbing to us.

In that case don't blank it off.

BTW, if this is mains-fed then you shouldn't even be considering leaving in a dead leg.
