I mean to remove toilet completely to allow joiner to install 'Wet wall' for
me .At present there are two poly extension pieces that connect the toilet
discharge to the metal drain pipe.I happened to be chatting to the plumber
when he installed the toilet a few years ago and when he rammed the toilet
pan outlet into first poly extension I mentioned that it slide in very
easily and he said 'I put some ???? on the joints'or words to that effect.I
did not catch what he said and did not want to be too nosey and ask again.I
take it that it was some sort of liquid sealant and as I will be refitting
the toilet myself could someone please tell me what he is likely to have
He most likely used silicon grease or washing up liquid to lubricate the pan
connector. Sealers of any kind would not normaly be required.
As the poly connectors are several years old it would be wise to fit new
ones when replacing the pan, they are cheap enough and would probably come
with a sachet of lubricant.
Marley Plumbing and Drainage sell Universal Silicone Lubricant SZ100 for
connecting plastic drainage pipes. It comes in a small 100g bottle and
is stocked by B&Q. Iin my local store, it was near the plastic soil
pipes. Think it was about ฃ6.
