    Hi all.
    I am renewing the toilet in a ground floor cloakroom. The toilet arrangement is the same as this picture.

    The bend circled is clay and has cracked.
    Can anyone tell me if this can be replaced with a standard 90 or 87.5 degree bend or even an adjustable bend, or does it have to be a larger radius bend.
    I have searched extensively but cannot find a firm answer.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Had a look at the site you linked to. Please correct me if i'm wrong but is that a long radius bend in the pic., it looks like a normal bend .

    Can you get these with a single socket end to fit a clay to plastic rubber connector?

    I appreciate your help.

    No it doesn`t have to be a long radius bend - it wouldn`t tbe one fitted when built :idea: . Try going to Wolseley Drain Center if you have one near to you :idea:

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    You can see my confusion now, there seems to be different opinions.

    There is a drain centre by my work, i'll take a picture and ask them.

    Cheers.
