    Just about to start installing new conceala 2 concealed cistern.

    When test fitting the flush pipe I was surprised it didn’t go up into the flush outlet very far. Looking up the outlet there are lugs stopping the flush pipe. Are these reminents of the moulding process?

    Does the flush pipe really stop at these lugs or should it go right up towards the white bit (photo attached)

    Thanks

    It doesn't have to go right in - just enough for the flush cone or flush plug, and be watertight;)

    Thanks.

    Just put it in as far as it can up to the lugs and tested flushed. No leaks.

    Thanks for replying
