    Hi all,

    I'd like to replace some of this soil pipe in order to fit the WC close to the wall. Preferably using rigid pipe sections where possible, as opposed to the flexible connector which looks similar to a tumble dryer vent hose.

    Could anyone suggest which pipe connectors could be suitable?

    Can this offset swan-neck pan connector be used on its side?
     
  2. This to replace the existing soil pipe, you may want to leave the existing pipe and cut it down but it's probably easier to start from scratch - don't forget to chamfer the cut ends and use a bit of lubricant (not detergent or oil based) https://www.screwfix.com/p/floplast-lubricant-gel-800g/10631

    You may be able to use these to move the soil pipe close to the wall - it looks a bit too tight to get the offset but hard to tell from the photos

    Turn the branch and use a 30deg single socket bend or a 15deg double socket bend with a small cutting of pipe to get it back to the wall then a 90deg pan connector, a 45/135 deg bend is too acute with that branch for the distance you have there.

  5. Agreed - sorry I somehow missed the top view photo.

    Just keep an eye on the branch - it looks as though the stack may have been rotated slightly already and the branch looks to have partially pulled out.
