    Hi,

    I need to replace the bottom entry filler on a toilet in my new house. However the toilet goes right to the back hiding all the pipes (see picture).This is annoying as i cannot see how i can easily replace filler with no access to the pipes.

    How do you access the pipes?

    Do I need to unscrew the pan from the floor and pull the whole thing forward? If i need to do this, i am hoping that a flexible waste and flexible water supply pipe.

    Are there any clever alternatives?

    It might be possible to sort it from above, but without being able to see what fittings you have in your cistern it's impossible to say

    Just fitted one of these and what a twat it was. I've put flexi waste on mine and left it out for the night so I can check it overnight and will push it back to wall tomo. If urs is on a flexi pan connector just unscrew the pan/cistern and pull it out. (The mains in will be on a flexi hose, there's no other way of fitting em). Make sure u unscrew cistern & pan from the floor/wall!
     
  5. Chances are it will have to all be taken out. One of the major flaws with a back-to-wall toilet.

    Can you post a pic of the inside of the cistern?
