McAlpine MACFIT 90Â° WC Long Pan Connector
I thought I knew better than other reviewers of this item but I was sadly very wrong.
I took off the previous fitting which had a perished seal and put this on.
I It does not allow for a few millimetres deviation which the previous bend had so guess what I now have a leaking bend.
Please heed these reviews.

not bog standard
very tight fitting and no chance of slipping off.
worth the little extra.

Just the job
I've used McAlpine products on a number of occasions and they always prove reliable - I've never had a leak from their pan connectors..
This item was used recently to connect to a soil pipe which was partially hidden behind boxing-in.
The fact that it has a bit of 'give' meant that I could squeeze it into the gap behind the boxing and fit it without having to dismantle the boxing.
As with all pan connectors, a bit of washing up liquid or silicone spray will help to push it (wiggle it) into the soil stack.
As a previous reviewer said, the product comes in one piece and can't be shortened, but McAlpine do a shorter version.

Won't use again.
This company is generally good for parts and I use their parts a lot.
However this part's problem is that the fluted soil pipe seal, opposite end to pan seal is moulded as part of the product.
This makes it impossible to cut down to length should it be required.
It's made of polythene and I was surprised when pushing it into soil pipe that it distorted and warped all over the place, recovering it's shape after.
Seems too flimsy as a soil connection to me.
