    A schoolboy question I'm sure but, can anyone tell me if I can use a flexi pan connector to turn 2x 90deg bends?

    Loo in it's current position has outlet to the rear and then a 90deg down to the outlet in the floor, about 5" behind. I want to move the loo to the side by about 6". So in it's new position, the waste will need to exit the pan horizontally then, about 5" away turn 90 degs horiz and then after 6", turn 90degs down into the floor.

    If this can't be done, can anyone please suggest what connectors I should instead be using please.

    Thanks

    It is a plastic pipe that appears to sit directly above a buried clay sewer pipe. The new connector I assume, would squish into this pipe?

    It’ll more than likely block on a regular basis.

    Been researching more into this. Can I use a 90 bend out of the hole in the ground and a 90 bend from the back of the loo? Presumably it is possible to join two connectors together? I also need to plumb in the basin waste into the wc pipe.

    Here's the situation as it is (see pics)
    I've tried the flexi pipe but it is not tight enough unfortunately.
    Any thoughts,?
