    Can i use a 45 degree bend in the middle of a soil pipe run. I have to install a new inspection chamber, cannot get it square on to the existing chamber due to falls etc so would need a 45 about 2 meters from each chamber.

    Is this acceptable to building regulations and is it sensible. I know you cant have a 90 as it stops a rod, but assume 45 is ok.

    Thanks for any insight.

    You can get long radius bends for drains

    Officially if you have any change in direction or level you should have the ability to rod/inspect from there. Try and get your 45 degs next to your ICs, I don't think BC will allow 45 degs mid run.

    DIYers have their own language, which only a DIYer can understand. You must of been down the merch when someone was trying to explain what they needed and all the tradesmen were totally baffled, but another DIYer says ' I know what you mean mate, it's one of them twisted metal things you use when doing a wall with those cement thingys' and the other guy says 'that's it, don't know why these lot can't understand us.

    Surely if 45 is fine, 135 would be like a hair pin bend for your effluent?:oops:or do they measure from a u turn being 0°?

    Not quite, in the middle of a run between inspection chambers. As in inspection chamber > 2m straight > 45 degree bend > 2m straight > inspection chamber.

    I think tomfe has the correct answer.

    Thanks for all the help.

    That's a pipe with several 45° connections mid run and no manholes required, rodable and Part H compliant.

    Unless I'm too drunk or not drunk enough, that's the situation you are taking about.

    Sorry to resurrect such an old thread. But I’m considering adding a downstairs toilet where it’s not practical to connect to the existing soil pipe. The pipe run is the same as in your photo with the new drop into a rest bend mid run.

    The issue is the pipe runs slight to close to the wall to have the rest bend connect to a 45 Y. Would it be acceptable to use a 45 Y then a single socket 45 to allow the rest bend to be placed parallel to the main pipe run? Or if not a 30, to increase the space available?

    Cheers
