    Hi Currently undergoing a loft conversion, looking at the soil pipe details
    I have found a vast difference in Prices in this case do you get more "bang for your buck" Ie Osma = Rolls Royce or will a lesser alternative still have the Longevity ? any recommendations gratefully received
    Cheers

    Personally, Osma / Mc Alpine, better quality fit when it comes to ancillary parts. Less prone to seal failure due to fitting issues / general quality. There's some really cheap Chinese stuff out there but it's rubbish and really hard to work with.

    I also suspect that Wolseley price is a web price for the general public and you'd get a better price in branch. Quite why the merchants think it's helpful to give false online prices is beyond me. After all, I tend to do quotes in the evening when merchants are closed and their websites are then beyond useless if they show the wrong price, even though I have trade accounts.

    thought they seemed a bit Pricey in comparison …..some places would only give you a price if you opened an account and gave credit details I suppose I,ll have to pop in there ……..do you think the Centre brand is ok ?

    Used Center (sic.) brand waste fittings, but not soil. It is on a par with Polypipe. I think Osma has the edge, but Center is fine IMO.

    I may go with Osma then as I intend to run the Soil Internally ( I,m allowing a thicker wall to the front of the dormer to accommodate it ) using solvent fittings ….. I don't want any leaks
