    I need to rotate my standpipe in the utility through 90° due to moving my washing machine. However, the I have an elbow which is solvent welded and only an inch or so above the floor.
    I am worried that once i cut the joint off, I wont have enough to get a good joint onto.

    Is there an internal fitting (or other sized pipe?) that I can insert down inside the pipe so that I can extend it upwards?

    Have you got pictures you can upload of the waste pipework.
    Also do you have access to the void beneath the floor.

    Looks as if you would just about have room for a fitting but if you saw through the elbow, leaving the collar intact, you can then (carefully) saw the collar in a couple of places and drive (carefully) a screwdriver between pipe & collar and remove it in sections.
