    Hi,

    My kitchen is at the back of the house and the sink waste water exits the house via a pipe that feeds into a grated drain.

    I want to move the sink about 4 meters along the same wall. I imagine I need to just dig a new gully to connect the new location to the existing drain. Before I start digging can anyone tell me what kind of pipework I need to install and instructions on building a new gully? Do I need to lay the pipe onto cement? I have looked but am not sure what bottle gullies are, whether I need a new trap or where to start.

    The house was built in 1975.

    Many thanks.

    Would be a lot easier to route a new waste pipe from the sink to the existing gulley, unless there is a reason why this cannot be done?

    As Hugh suggests. However, if this is not viable then gully traps should be laid onto concrete bases and all subground pipework should be embedded within peashingle
