Steel toilet soil pipes


Q

Quigs

I want toange the position of my toilet, and I have noticed that the
soil pipe that it feeds into is a steel 90 degree bend from
horizontal.

I didn't want to get into pulling up floor boards just yet, so I
thought I would ask the experts here!

Is the 90 degree bend likely to be easy to remove, i.e. by some bolts
or is it likely to be just a preformed end that feeds into the main
soil stack approx 2 metres away?

Are there any websites that talk about the variants of soil pipes
available, so that I can reserach this "interesting" subject?!

Cast iron, unless you have soemthing very funny (if it were steel I'd expect
it to be a heap of rust by now)
90 degree bend from horizontal.
Do you mean it goes down, or sideways?

NO! I've tried to get cast iron pipe apart at the joints and failed
miserably. Maybe Arnie could do it ;-)

Possibly the easiest way to re-do a length of it would be to cut into a
straight section and join on plastic pipe - with a bit of luck a plastic
socket fitting should just push-fit over the iron pipe, but if not you can
get fittings which are like a short section of thick rubber tube with
jubilee clips which are used to fit it onto iron pipe one end, plastic on
the other. (Can't remember offhand what they're called.)

pass :)
