    Hi,

    I am hoping someone can help me with my close coupled toilet fitting.
    I have purchased an RT Large Maria toilet because I knew I needed a toilet to fit a soil pipe 18cm away from the wall. This was the toilet I was told would fit.
    I have bought a swan neck fitting and cut to the smallest possible size however the problem is the angle of my soil pipe, more like a 45 degree angle.
    With the swan neck attached to soil as it is the combined width is roughly 34cm, however the gap for the toilet waste is 26 cm max so in this configuration it will not fit.
    I guess my question is can I cut the soil pipe from the ground as it bends so the soil is coming straight up? Will the diameter of the pipe be too large at this point then for the swan neck seal?
    I see this as my only option but the bend is quite close to the ground so I want to be sure before I cut it.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

    Thanks

    Brendan

    It would seem the soil connection is on a 45 degree bend, but looks removable, try taking this out (with care) and see if that’s any better.

    with closed back pan you have, as I suspect that offset was put in place to centralise the pan between the walls .As you have found there is not enough room between the cheeks to accommodate an offset.
    Two choices I can see are to remove whats above the floor as already suggested but you may have to move the pan to the left again or purchase an open back pan which has space behind.

    Looks like it would work, similar to the swan neck fitting a have, has this pipe got a bit of flexible hose on one end? which I could use to offset the oan between the 2 walls

    I would say that was the exact reason, I suppose I will have to line it up tomorrow see how it look and than make that decision, or like you say I have exhausted my options for a close coupled toilet if the positioning doesn't look right, thanks

    ok thanks, not sure on the returns policy so I would like to try and get this one to fit and I like the hidden pipework, but good to know I still have options

    Again it would involve a new toilet but if you like the idea of hidden pipework a back to wall one may be the way to go?
