Hi! First time posting here! Great forum, a novice DIYer attempting to fit my first bathroom out.
I'm installing a bathroom into a bedroom, the bedroom was previously used as a bathroom (40+ years ago) but all the waste and soil pipes have been removed leaving the soil/waste pipe holes in the wall behind.

So my situation is as follows...

  • 120mm hole already exists in the wall suitable for toilet waste.
  • Hole slopes downards from inside the room to outside at a 20deg angle.
  • Hole is offset from the back of the pan by about 70mm. The pan exit is 70mm higher than the hole.
  • Prefer not to use a long flexible pan connector as connector will be exposed. My opinion, they are ugly (as is boxing one in!)
I'm struggling to find a white 20 deg soil pipe bend or 20 deg pan connectors for sale anywhere, even online.
Does anyone have any other suggestions? I'd rather avoid bricking the hole up and re-drilling it, but that seems my only option at the moment.

Thanks!

Only multiquick pan connectors are best, the others are cheap and rubbish ..centralheatking

Firstly, as it's so old, it is unlikely to be at the correct height for today's WCs. They are today typically 185mm from floor to spigot centre.

Good connectors are designed to accommodate a mere 5 degree variation in fitting. For me, this means to guarantee it will be poo tight long term I'd brick up the existing hole & then core drill using a PipeSnug on the outside to minimise heat loss.
