    From a basin and bath? Just keep to regular waste and trap maintenance and keep them clean. That's common sense with internal stacks.

    "I" wouldn't bother with the manifold.
    Boss into the soil with 2" and run this as far towards the appliances as you can.. Ideally, it will go into the floor void with no problems, then step it down to 1.25" at a T (with reducer in the top) below the basin location and then continue to bath in either 2" or 1.5" (via another reducer) depending on the space you have... 2" is an "if you can, then why not" :)

    Firstly, thanks for all the advice you provided. It took me around 4 hours to get through this pipe as it was so close to the wall and hence awkward.

    I filed the edges and placed some duct tape for good measure too.

    Got the waste pipes laid out too.

    I would welcome your feedback and suggestions.

    The top branch looks like it is upside down.

    As above... Coupler and turn branch other way up.

    Thanks guys.
    On the upside down point. If I turn the top fitting the other way around it won’t go on to the grey pipe. The current side has the rubber.

    Is it essential that I change this as I’ve now got the toilet pipe in the right place.

    BUT want to make sure there are no leaks in the future. Thanks

    Yes. As said... Get a coupler (linked above or solvent weld both sides) and put this in below the branch so that you have a female end, into which you put the spigot of the branch... You don't want females facing downwards.

    Yes, it really isn't correct the way it is.

    Perhaps I should have chosen better sentence construction! :LOL:

    Sorry me again guys.
    Got a single coupler and turned the top fitting around.
    However my grey pipe connection doesn’t seem right now?

    If the black socket is glued to the grey pipe - it's OK
