    Hi all, My loo has developed a leak. When flushed the water spurts out the connection between pan & soil pipe.

    The toilet is probably 6-9 years old, I suspect the pipe is ruptured or disconnected, so I'd like to get a replacement on standby.

    The attached picture is looking down towards the soil pipe, concealed cistern on RHS, stud wall on LHS, which the toilet is against.

    My main question, is the flexible soil pipe a standard fitment? I'd rather not move the toilet out until I have the bits necessary to do the job.

    Is this what I want? http://www.victorianplumbing.co.uk/vpsearch.aspx?searchText=FLXPANC

    They are pretty standard but come in different lengths. Looking at the pic, I don't think you would need the longer ones but check before you buy. Lots of places sell them.

    I assume there is a split/tear in the flexible connector??

    Good opportunity to replace it with a solid one if you can, flexible ones are (pardon the pun) sh*t :!:

    Ah, I just presumed it wasn't possible, which is why previous owner did that.
    I'll look into that, ta.

    "Sometimes" there won't be space... Mostly it's just a lazy DIY'er who couldn't be bothered!

    Funnily, it was done by the previous house owner... A professional bathroom fitter! But it wouldn't surprise me, judging by other gems I have found around the property.
