great for tricky situations

"I used this on a shallow shower base installation a couple of days ago, because of the way the existing waste pipework was layed out and the customer did not want it to change, this flexible unit worked very well for me. there are others out there on the market but i feel this to be the better one simply because alot of the other units do not stay in the position needed for the flow, this unit once contorted to suit your installation stays how you need it to stay. much like a bigger, more durable version of a slurpy drinking straw. very easy to use and got me out of a tight spot! :)"

Lifesaver
26 Apr 2014
By Murphy3

"Using one of these can certainly save loads of time trying to realign awkward pipework - they've served me well on more than one occasion.
As other reviewers have said, the fitting extends quite a bit so can be curved around obstacles. Also, the compression end will fit over a solvent weld pipe.
I've also used the 32mm version behind a basin pedestal where there was no movement in the waste pipe as it went under the floor - this gives you flexibility if you need to remove the basin for any reason.
The concertina pipe is slightly narrower than a standard 40mm pipe, but I've never had any problems with water flow.
Good reliable product, good price."

A real time and money saver
3 Sep 2013
By normandy
, Crowborough
"This fitting saved the day when installing a replacement bath to existing waste pipes. The existing pipes would have been very awkward to realign and this fitting is the answer. The description fails to mention the important fact that the fitting can, very usefully, be expanded/extended to much more that the stated 320 mm length. Only negative is that the fitting is slighlty more restrictive to water flow than using standard piping - but this is a minor point and will not affect most applications. As ever, great value and delivery service by Screwfix - thanks!"

Universal Compression Flexible

By Deano247

"If you need to alter or are fitting new waste pipes and the trap / pipework etc is not quite as easy as you'd like - this will get you out of a pickle with its flexibility its great for the bath / kitchen sink or that tight spot under your shower
not for your wash hand basin though - you need the 32mm size for that"

Great for tight situations
19 Jan 2010
By amateursparky
, Midlands
"I must say this is a excellent bit of kit, for getting out of tight situations, i had a very odd bath wast trap and needed a flexible outlet
The compression and the pushfit end are both 40mm so ensure you have 40mm on both sides
just a bit pricey as there is nothing toooo special about a bendy tube"

Good but restricts water flow
2 Jan 2014
By CynicalSoul
, Peterborough
"The pipe is fairly well made for the price and I cant see there being any future issues with the seals as I've had in other more expensive ones.
The pipe extends from 320mm to about 720mm which should be in the description.
The downside with this is it restricts the water flow far more than it needs to. The inside of the pipe is much less than the inside of a 32mm pipe, and seeing as this is a 40mm fitting, that decrease in size is far too much in my opinion.
It might not be noticeable for a while but the reduction in water flow will cause most baths and showers to build a layer of scum in the pipes faster than usual, restricting the water flow even more until it blocks.
Basically, if you are confident that a 32mm pipe would be good enough for what you need then buy this."

Useful for awkward jobs
16 Feb 2010
By BigBill
, Northumberland
"This pipe is essential when fitting a new shower tray and trying to marry up the waste to the existing pipework. It is highly flexible and the length is adjustable which allows for large discrepancies in the alignment of the pipe to the waste.
The only down side is that the bore reduces to about 30mm, but this does not seem to slow the flow down too much

"Ideal for that situation where standard kit just doesn't fit. Saved me cutting and removing a floor section when installing a new bath. Not sure how resistant to knocks it might be when extended but that's probably unlikely in most situations."

Functional & practical.
25 Nov 2009
By Wigmore
, Medway, Kent.
"I found this item incredibly handy. A myriad of uses. Unlike the other reviewer I had no problems with the male end fitting a compression joint, I was however using new pipe work and joints all-round and not offering up to old compression joints. It is a wicked bit of kit. For 40mm (1½”) pipe. Expands from 33cm (13”) to 80cm (32”) approx & flexible for awkward pipe runs & confined spaces. Happy days."

not up to the job
8 May 2014
By clickhead
, exmouth
"I changed a bath waste to a pop up style and this necessitated a change of trap.As the new trap did not align with existing pipe work (solvent welded) I thought that this would be ideal.I was wrong what you can't tell from the image shown even in close up is that the pipe is 40mm at each end but narrows due to design to almost 30mm in between.
this caused my bath to drain slowly.I should have read older reviews as this point has been previously raised.I can imagine the problems it could cause after prolonged use and can even foresee clogging.If you check out (on screwfix) another make with a Scottish name you will find that their example is 40mm right through and it seems so much more well made.It isn't that much more expensive either.Don't waste your money on this item go straight for the better one.I've binned this and gone for it.

"Recently purchased two different models as per catalogue. Both had short comings as neither was compatable with also purchased British made bath trap. Will stick with known brands in future even if have to visit a plumbers merchant. At least they are reliable!"
