hi guys,

I have a customer that has a downstairs loo that is too close to the wall for their comfort. They would like me to angle the loo to give them more leg room.

Went round with a 4" flexi to find an ancient 3" bore cast iron pipe connected with a macfit.

I have spent ages trying to find an adaptor or a suitable flexi but not had much luck.

I am now in rural Scotland so heading off to the suppliers is not as simple as it sounds so trying to find something online.

Thought to ask this knowledge base for any pointers

Cheers

Ian

Can you not make something out of lead? and then insert a multiquick? If something like @CBW1982 posted won't fit of course, as that would be the easiest option.

not sure I could do something like that, would need to study the process and get some lead, must be a church around here somewhere :)

Hi mate, got one of these but bore is 3", O/D is 3 1/2 or so which is the same as the outlet so it's just too big to fit into pipe
Hi mate,

At a push, you could use one of these (mac ext-c) trimmed back and a standard 4” flexible connector?

Straight Extension MACFIT

Failing that I’d recommend cutting cast iron back and using a flex seal coupling reducing to 75mm and a bit of soil pipe and fittings?
