Universal 40mm Compression Flexible Waste Pipe 320mm
ideal for the job
These flexible pipes are great, no more fixed bends, bends to any angle. Good price too

Not a good experience
I fitted this under a stone resin shower tray with limited space, all seemed okay with a jug of water test but under full test it would not stop leaking from compression end onto 40mm pipe. Never seemed a tight fit and threads would jump if applying a little more than just nipped up pressure by hand.
Ended up removing and fitting fixed pipe in place of and with a struggle due to limited space to work in. Bore of the pipe also reduces to approx 30mm if not fully extended.

i bought this to connect to a McAlpine 40mm trap; unfortunately the spigot end is PUSH-FIT as many people (myself included!) seemed to miss. It won't fit solvent-weld pipe and won't normally fit the McAlpine trap due to the built in length of bore- liner on the trap - I got around this by using a die grinder, a cylindrical die and a blob of silicone. Compression end went straight onto 40mm solvent weld pipe and hand tight was enough not to leak.
I used this for a kitchen sink; I wouldn't recommend it for a bath or shower due to the reduced bore when the pipe isn't stretched out fully.

I so wish I read the early reviews. The end of this pipe is not 40mm. It will not fit any standard waste and it will not solvent weld into a 40mm fitting. I only tried that hoping I could still make it work. I dont understand how the people who rated this high even made it work.
