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!"

"Evaluated a number of different options for fitting new pedestal basin to existing 40mm waste pipe. In the end, went with a 32mmx40mm pedestal trap + this flexible waste connector. Minimum number of parts and no hassle."

Universal Compression Flexible
24 Feb 2012
By Deano247
, Mid Wales
"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."

Avoid at all costs
20 Dec 2013
By ShaunInsussex
, Sussex
"This is a really badly made piece of kit not reflecting the Screwfix name. The rubber V ring on the coupler is too hard and large and as such will not allow the thread to close enough so it slips before you can tighten thus water pours out.
The other end sealed fine into the 40mm waste grommet but this is destined only for the skip.
Its too risky a location (often quite well sealed with a batch panel) for you to risk using this.
Will try the McAlpine and review that but please save your money and avoid this chap.

"Absolute rubbish. I bought three of these and ended up throwing them away.
The compression joint does not tighten up enough to stop leaks - a rather fundamental design flaw.
I recommend using solid pipe and making a proper connection."

Not fit for purpose
26 Mar 2013
By bathroomman
, Stirling
"This flexi connecter is shown as being 40 mm.
What is not shown is that in the flexi part the internal bore narrows down to about 30 mm. This is even less than waste pipe for wash hand basins. This is not suitable for showertrays which have no gravity on the waste water to help keep pipes clear of hair. Other flexi connecters are slightly more expensive but they have a full 40mm bore.

Too small
18 Dec 2012
By JackB
, Lincoln
"This is supposed to be a flexible 40mm tube. It is well made and it extends and bends really well. The problem is the size. Each of the ends are 40mm but the extendable/flexible part in the middle reduces down to around 20/30mm half the diameter that is needed for a good flow of water. There are others about that do not reduce down, use those."

Flexi Is Not Good.

"Not as Good as it looks. Difficult to couple up. Once extended its difficult to shorten back. Not used and reverted back to fixed fittings."
