Am moving a Toilet tomorrow the customer wants it moved along the same wall about 3 feet, so they can get a bath in, I was thinking of extending the grey soil pipe and connecting with a flexible connector,reading some of the threads a few guys are not lovers of these, but I feel this is the way as I want the toilet to sit back against the wall, is there a limit on how far these flexibles should be stretched out I relies the longer they are the more flimsy they get. Regards
I do not see any problem with flexi pan connector's as they can be very handy and i do not think that they look too bad either, little tip when fitting do not use silicone grease as it will keep sliding off especially if it is stretched. Use water instead as it will dry quicker
Flexible pan connectors are available in different lengths and their minimum and maximum working lengths are usually included either in the advert selling them online or in the packaging when you buy one. Don't overstretch one as they can slip off if you try this. Use a section of plastic soil pipe on the end to increase it's length without stretching it.

BY THE WAY I'M NOT COMMERCIAL. A flexible hose, gets up ma nose.
You may need to support it if it's a long stretch to stop it sagging and all the Richards getting bcked up.
