    Hi,

    What's the smallest pipe I can use inconjunction with a wall-hung basin?

    This is the basin I want to fit in my new bathroom:

    I have never done waste plumbing before and I would be really grateful if someone could recommend which type of waste pipe to use (solvent/compression - it will be buried behind tiles of course).

    And also whether it's possible to use find a narrow waste pipe (i.e. 22mm) rather than the bigger waste pipes that are available at my local plumbers merchant.

    It's got to hook up to an existing 40mm plastic waste pipe which is hidden behind some boxing. I want to join into it and carry the pipe into the wall and then into the new basin.

    Simon.

    32mm (1 1/4 inch). Solvent weld is neatest.

    Thanks Chris.

    What do you think the best tool would be to chase into a breeze block wall?

    Simon.
