    I am about to change our bathroom an wanted to check the WC soil connection please.

    I have attached a photo and wondered if the brown pipe emerging from the floor level connection can be removed and the new waste connection fitted directly into the floor?

    If I do this, is the 'socket' connection in the floor supported in any way or am I likely to cause myself grief by pushing the existing connector below the level of the floor?

    Thanks

    If a wooden floor then impossible to say without looking underneath. I would ascertain whats going on before doing much more, the brown bend may take some effort to remove from the socket in the floor, you dont want to be disturbing anything downstream you're not aware of...

    If a concrete floor you should be ok, I'd hope the concrete/screed would be strong enough to hold everything in place!

    It will pull out but if it’s been in there a while it will be hard to pull. I would pull it while making a bit of a circling motion to pull/wiggle it out.

    I can't make out if it's chipboard or screed :unsure:

    Looks like a screed to me.
