Universal Compression Waste Straight Couplers 40mm
Great for those awkward places
Whilst I'd normally advocate solvent weld waste pipe, this joiner was great when I needed a flexible join in an awkward location. Best bit is that it will join the various types of 40mm pipe (solvent weld/ push fit/ compression) with a watertight join!

Gets you out of a hole!
Nominally 40mm waste pipe comes in 2 actual sizes - 41mm for push-fit and 43mm for solvent weld. This device is designed to join one of each type of pipe together - and I'm sure that it does it very well.
I needed it for something slightly different. I needed to extend some grey waste pipe which is proprietary to Franke - is exactly 40mm - and can only be purchased as a complete sink kit.
I used one of the couplers to join Franke's 40mm pipe to readily available push-fit (41mm) pipe - and it worked fine, and appears to be leak-free.
Too early to say about reliability - I only installed it yesterday!

Trusty waste connector
I keep these in the van for the times when the kitchen sink or bath waste in a property doesn't quite match the size of the waste that I carry in my van. They never fail to make the joint, and if used in an inconspicuous place, do a great job.

I use alot of these fittings from screwfix. Good quality washers inside that create a good seal, and cheap price too! Just make sure the nut is nicely on the thread before you tighten them
