Does a flexible WC pan connector fit directly inside a ring seal and/or solvent weld fitting?

    Hi, please forgive the newbie question:

    Will a standard McAlpine Flexible WC Pan connector like this...

    ... fit directly into a ring seal connector....

    and/or a solvent weld connector....

    ...on a standard 110mm soil pipe? Or would I need to insert a cut piece of pipe inside each of these first, so it fits inside the 110mm pipe without a connector?

    Which would give the most secure fitting?

    It needs to go in a bit of pipe.

    @Dan Robinson Thanks, so you can't put the flex pan connector into a ring-seal fitting, like this chap suggests?:



    It just has to go straight into 110m pipe itself?

    Put a bit of pipe in the elbow (glued it is a solvent fitting) then the Flexi.


    I won't give you my opinion of that muppet.
