    So every plumber iv had round to quote me on my bathroom has said there's an issue putting a new toilet in because of where the waste pipe is, no one is giving me a solution and I just want an answer if this can be done or not, I want a back to wall toilet a little more over to the left of where the current one is, the waste pipe won't rotate that's in the wall so he's concerned how he's going to get the waste to go flush to the back wall, if anyone with experience can give me some ideas what to do that would be great. 16303564527567335086438019391940.jpg 16303564944231737362246519233842.jpg 16303565103574528685731093301646.jpg 16303565297481801768222681443444.jpg 16303565297481801768222681443444.jpg 16303565103574528685731093301646.jpg 16303564944231737362246519233842.jpg 16303564527567335086438019391940.jpg

    Yep, x2 45 degree soil solvent weld bends, a bit of soil pipe and a 90 degree pan connector. Failing that a wc-con8f - but flexibles are prone to blocking. Depending on size of bathroom, could you alter the basin and toilet?

    The bathroom is very small, I was considering having the toilet the other way around so the back of the toilet was where the waste pipe is but there won't be any leg room as my bath will be directly in front so anyone with longer legs sitting on the toilet will struggle, the sink is being moved to the wall that the waste pipe is on near the door and the bathroom door is going to be opening out into the hall rather than into the bathroom to give me more space, I've just had a lot of negativity that it's impossible to do, in my opinion nothing is impossible, just want a direct answer whether it can be done or not, thanks for replying, would the flexible waste pipe be prone to blockage though?

    They can be. Like I said, it can be done using the 2 options I’ve given. There’s always 90 degree soil bends as well.

    Are you doing it yourself or using a plumber?

    The short answer is "no". Not with the rear wall as is.

    The longer answer: no, unless you are prepared to sacrifice space by building a false wall forward of the existing and to a minimum height of the top of the new cistern to accommodate the soil pipe.

    A better solution would then be a concealed flush panel within the new wall.

    If budget and space permit this could work well.

    +1, you will never be able to get a back to the wall toilet to fit in there without cutting a section out of the toilet or the wall, which isn't advised. You could use a close coupled pan where the pan is cutout to the right so the soil pipe can exit right and then 2 elbows but that's an awful lot of bends in such a tight space, could be prone to blockages.

    Another alternative would be a toilet vanity unit but I have a suspicion you are limited with space and want the toilet to go back as far as possible?
