Bad plumber = leak and more. WC connector help please.

Found a photo of the connection to the existing stack. It's a mechanical coupling like the one in the link below. The old pan was located to the left of the room so the connection was a straight one. Cast came straight in to the room and connected to pan. The plumber cut this back and connected to it with the below.

Don't think i have much choice but to stick with the existing connection height.

Thanks though.

I'm now thinking i'll put a plinth under the loo which will raise it enough to allow a straight pan connector rather than 18mm offset connector that the 'plumber' installed.


Perhaps you might find a pan with a slightly higher foot-spigot(outlet) distance.

Best of luck.

Anyone know if the terracotta pipe will be solvent welded in or is it push fit? The female end (grey) says 110mm pp/tpe?

I cant seem to pull out the terracotta pipe but was under the impression that PP wasnt to be solvent welded?
