    As you can see on the link below, I have a bidet and the bathroom waste pipe is very close to the bidet outlet pipe, what can I use to connect one to the other given that they are very close?

    NB: I have put a T connector on the waste pipe a few days ago, and I can take this off if needbe, thanks.

    How long is the waste pipe that you Teed into, can you not connect a shallow angled coonector a few feet away & then join into it.

    I was lucky when I did a similar one. A 45 degree solvent weld bend on the trap just lined up with a solvent weld tee (the sockets aren't as large as universal compression sockets), but you will need to replace the pipe with solvent weld if it's push-fit.

    The problem I have is if I connect a "T" connector further down the pipe and connect the outlet to that, i'm finding the connected pipe isnt level and is, in fact, going upwards making the drainage of water difficult.

    I only have an inch gap between the two, and a more standard (non screw type T connector) will not solve the problem of it being so close.

    You need a Y connector, shallower angle.
