    We want to fit a close coupled toilet against a wall but our existing waste outlet will not allow us to do this. The outlet comes up from the floor then bends 90 degrees into the rear of the pan. Due to this we can only have a low level toilet. Is it possible to rectify this??

    Cheers

    build a false wall or use a swan neck pan coupler.

    but some measurements would be nice.

    A back-to-wall close couple pan set may provide you with the solution - plus you'll not see the wastepipe afterwards.

    Our toilet is sat quite far forward due to the position of where the waste pipe comes out the floor. Have a look at this pic I just found on the net. Ours is the same waste connection but it comes out the floor a lot further away from the wall

    which cost £250 and not the price on the website. Worked a treat. You may find something similar.

    Edit - not 300mm though!!

    Was unaware that is was 300 when I posted it originally, hence the edit.

    Im guessing my only option really is to build a unit to fit the new cistern against. Ideally wanted it against the wall to give the room a bit more space
