Universal 40mm Compression Flexible Waste Pipe 320mm
Great get out of trouble item
Difficult location to connect a shower waste to the existing pipe in the concrete floor. This product did it in one, without the need for multiple fittings.

Beware not totally universal
Although the description says that you can fit the plain end into the waste trap, I tried to do this with a new Mcalpine 40mm anti-siphon trap. This takes a standard 40mm (e.g. floplast) waste pipe but the plain end of the flexible waste pipe is not the standard size (smaller internal diameter). Consequently it couldn't be mated with the trap - the Mcalpine has an inner spigot over which the mating pipe must fit and the flexible would not pass over it so I had to use a small section of standard pipe with a push-fit compression coupler to make the join. The pipe section mated with the trap and the coupler mated with the plain end of the flexible. Ok but space was already quite tight and the length of the additional straight compression coupler (see photo) did not make it easier. Probably no issue at all with a standard trap. If you need an antisiphon trap check that the flexible will actually fit its outlet. I have rated only 2 stars for performance and reliability as only time will reveal these.

Sink waste conection made easy
Excellent piece of kit allowing connection of sink waste to drain pipe. Especially if space is tight under sink. Just bend and fit to suit.....easy. No need for elbows and small bits of pipe. I used it when replacing the waste pipes to my old twin kitchen sink. This product made final connection simple.
