There are many different pipes available from most DIY shops or plumbers merchants to solve this problem, probably the easiest is a flexible coupling. This looks like a 'concertina' type pipe with waste couplings on each end. If you are in the UK both B&Q and IKEA stock this part. Hope this helps

What's wrong with macerating toilet?


What is most likely the case is that the toilet is not properly vented by waste plumbing standards. Not all jurisdictions require macerating toilets to be vented, but by not doing so causes pressure in the drain lines as well as some suction which can pull water from sink traps, allowing odors and insects to get into the home.

Can you tie into a common dscharge pipe when plumbing a sanivite and saniplus?


I think it can be done , but it may be against the local code for your area. The obvious concern is back up of sewage in the sink, and washing machine.

Does the outlet pipe have to go directly into the spigot on the kitchen sink trap? or can it go into a free standing waste pipe /


The plumbing code in your area will specify where you can or can't go with the outlet line. You wouldn't want to attach it to a line where any waste from another source would pass the dishwasher connection line, because the waste could flow back into the dishwasher. That's why you normally route it to the sink or garbage disposal (no concerns about waste from another source getting into the dishwasher line).

We purchased a Silgranit sink and the recommended stopper-strainer (model no. 441098). Our plumber says that this unit is designed to fit through the sink bowl and attach to a waste disposal system (ie....

FITTING A BASIN


I am guessing you have the square one then. You need to fit your waste as normal, Send the waste through a hole in the surface you are placing the sink on and make your connections underneath. I use plumbers mait as a sealant when tightening the outlet. You then need to think about your taps. Since they are totally separate from the sink you can use what you want. Most people would use a monobloc riser though, secured to whatever surface you are laying the sink on.
You don't say how much you need to know about connections / plumbing etc. Please ask again if you are stuck with these.

Sitting water in washing machine (not immediately after use)


if it is dirty water then it sounds like it's coming from the sink if washing machine waste is plumbed to the sink make sure washing machine waste pipe is higher than the sink waste outlet if it is clean water then a new water valve is what's needed

I want to plumb in a dishwasher but there is no waste pipe for the dishwasher to join on to


Hi,
If there is a kitchen sink nearby you should be able to get a plastic waste pipe adaptor from a hardware store that simply screws in below the sink plug hole and joins to the U-bend pipework. It will have a short stub pipe on it for attaching the dishwasher drain pipe.
Hope this helps. D.
