    Hi all, doing out a cloakroom replacing the toilet and sink. When removing the sink the 32mm waste pipe went directly into the concrete floor. Just above the concrete floor was a compression joint which sheared with only minimum pressure to try to undo. The compression joint is orange (makes me think a direct connection to main drain)? And it also looks like it had orange poured on it to seal as there is an orange "spill" surrounding the compression joint (pic 2) anyway, it has snapped flush with the floor. I need to connect the new 32mm basin waste to the orange pipe which is now sub floor. Is there a 32mm pipe liner / sleeve which can be solvent welded inside or another way? Your help appreciated.

    Thanks, you've identified what it is - much appreciated. I Would have to remove the floor which is now solid glued down or drill a 120mm hole to try and extract it. I can get to the back edge of it and it seems pretty unmovable with concrete up to the edges. Might try and drill out the hole to 32mm and silicone a new waste pipe in place - or is this an absolute disaster?

    Does anyone know if you can buy a "push fit gasket / ring" then maybe I could drill out the cover and insert the gasket to make it push fit?
