    Hi,

    Does anyone know if it is possible to un-weld a solvent welded joint in a UPVC WC waste pipe?

    Yup, the plumber put it in the wrong place and I really don't want to have to disassemble the entire stack :)

    TIA

    Craig

    Thanks Kev. (I did do a Forum search before posting, but this thread didn't come up - honest :oops: ).

    I kinda knew the answer really, but it's always worth asking, just in case someone's come up with something new ...

    Guess not! Rats ... Looks like half the stack's coming out.

    Note to self: find a new plumber, i.e. one who doesn't install the pan in a position where you can't sit on it without banging your knees against the shower cubicle :eek:
