    Hi,

    I am fitting a freestanding bath and because it is freestanding I need a flexible pipe at some point so I can connect it all before lowering the bath down.

    The bath I bought provided this waste pipe:

    Which screw nicely onto the bath waste, however what do I do with the other end?
    It doesn't push inside a standard trap as it doesn't go far enough in to prevent water flowing back and me being confident it is going to stay there as a I lower the bath; and it is too flimsy and not the right size to make a compression joint with.

    I have tried an alternative flexible fixing but the waste on the bath (which is like one of these http://www.screwfix.com/p/sprung-basin-waste-slotted/41691 ) but the inner diameter of the bath waste doesn't quite take a 32mm washer, the washer is too small.

    How should I connect this?

    the link is a basin waste you need a bath waste ,any chance of photo of bath ,ALL the pieces that you got for waste / overflow /trap .to enable us to advise you further. a lot of these European traps etc sold on internet are not comptable with standard UK waste plumbing . I have chucked a few away recently and substituted UK. stuff.

  4. Ask the supplier,sometimes they bugger up the fitting packs and you get something incorrect.

    Nice fancy baths,thou.
