    Hi,
    As per many of my posts we're putting a garden cabin\salon in with a toilet. Ideally we don't want a stink pipe running up the outside so I was wondering if anyone can offer some advice on how we can get around this? Ive been to some camp sites which seem to have a contraption which deals with situations like this but I wasn't sure exactly how - any suggestions please?

    Thanks

    Ha sorry the pipe which comes out of the drain which takes the smell away from the drainage, usually they run up outside past the roof. I guess its because of the gases which are emitted.

    More than smell, the pipe is there to prevent a vacuum drawing the water out of the toiler bowl trap. You could either fit a neat vacuum breaker at ground level or box in the stack with trellis and grow a clematis up it.

    So what drainage will this toilet be connected to?

    Did you know that it will need Building Regulation approval?

    Hi,
    Thanks I'll look into a vacuum breaker as for where's it going - its going into the fowl currently connected to the house and yes Im aware of building regs we've already had the inspector out once just to do a site visit.

    You can run the 'stink pipe'up inside and through the roof. Box it in inside, and put a fake chimney pot on the outside.

    My 'man cave' is 100m away, at the end of my garden - too far to rely on gravity soil, so we did 4" to the halfway point which we could get to with natural fall and the rest is dealt with via a macerator which does wc, shower and basin.
    No problems in 10yrs apart from my son using novelty "crime scene tape" bog roll down the shyte muncher! :cautious:
    With your sit, you could bring the soil inside and create a stub stack which is higher than the highest flood point of the fittings and use a durgo (AAV fitting) to prevent vaccum/trap pulling. This could all be boxed in within the cistern housing if you went for a concealed cistern and btw pan.
