    Hi, does anyone have any recommendations for what pan connector arrangement would be best suited for a side entry soil pipe with 3” vertical offset? The pan is an ideal Standard Della and the deep side of the pan slightly obscures the soil pipe by about 5mm. I tried a straight flexi but it fouls the wall and a 90deg flexi was better but it seems to want to pull off the pan spigot and doesn’t sit straight in the soil pipe. Many Thanks

    The issue you have is the pan is designed for rear exit or floor

    Your going to need a bent extended pan connector a piece of 110mm or the adapter then a straight pan connector

    Thanks Shaun, much appreciated. By extended do you mean the long nose connector or the flexi?

    Yes I am coming to that conclusion. Its a job I am doing for my mother in law. I have an ideal standard vue toilet boxed up in my spare room that I never got round to installing in my home. I think that has better access behind so may be easier to swap and install that.

    Either box the pan forward or dig into the wall behind the soil pipe to give you a bit more room.

    As said above though. Wrong pan for the job.
