    If I were you, I’d possibly look into some sort of flow noise reducer .. it is like an insulation to break the noise when someone flushes.

    Are you running much pipe internally? Noise interference isn't much of a consideration except when you're woken up by it. You can get polypipe terrain acoustic 12db (pushfit only ) or at least consider using acoustic insulation, not sure if that's what matchless means.

    Yes i actually meant the acoustic stuff. There are some special sleeves in Germany which are very good at keeping the noise down. But you are right that’s what I meant. The poly terrain is good too.

    I had a look I think I'll be ok as I can insulation them as I have space

    The cheaper stuff like floplast is ok if internal. Outside I'd use a better brand as the colour will last longer and be alittle stronger. Use pushfit not solvent, just file edges, clean and plenty of silicone grease. Not the soray can stuff it drys up.

    Hi can I ask why push fit only ? ….its just Im running the soil pipe between the Dormer front wall ( ive allowed extra depth ) its tight going up through the eaves so I was going to use solvent as they have a smaller profile with a branch off to the toilet ( about 500-600) mm outside ive used push fit at junctions to allow for a little expansion
