    Hi
    I have a lovely brown hbp soil pipe with a 50mm pipe coming into my bathroom. I need to connect this to my shower waste which is wanting a 40mm solvent pipe. So I thought a 50 x 40 solvent weld reducer is what I needed. Off to tool station to get 27594 http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Solvent+Weld+Reducer/p27594

    Fits the 40mm pipe great but its the same width as the 50 pipe so it won't go around or inside it. Anyone know what I need to get?

    I had thought about replacing back to the soil pipe but can't find anyone who does brown 40mm and it would look odd with black!

    Lesson learnt never do jobs when merchants are shut - unless you know what you are doing!
    Thanks

    easy, you need a socket to join the two end

    Or in other words you got the wrong reducer, you wanted a pipe x pipe reducer.
