    Hi all, very quick question as going round the houses trying to find an answer to this: Will a standard UK pan collector fit a 100mm waste pipe (it's for France but with a toilet from here (UK) but the existing waste pipe in the bathroom is 100mm ??)

    toilet pan waste pipe

    I hear flexible waste pipe is better than non flexible one as the flexible one sits tightly into the soil pipe. Does one know whether one should apply glue onto the flexible waste pipe when inserting it into the soil pipe?

    Cistern overflows to pan when the shower is running.

    The toilet cistern overflows into the pan when the shower on the floor below is running. Why would this be? They say the shower seems low on pressure recently. Again why would this be and what is the connection between the problems if there is one?

    The Boss wants me to seal the sides and top of the pan against the WC cabinet. Obviously I will seal around the base but I think sides and top will look rubbish. What do others think?
