I fitted a new tap and waste outlet to a small basin, because the new outlet is shorter than the old, the plastic pipework no longer reaches (see photo) I can force the parts to mate but I don't like having the pipe under a lot of strain and it doesn't seal properly (I havent tried applying copious amounts of plumbers putty).
I am considering cutting off the white-painted down-pipe (at right of photo) and using a solvent-weld straight coupling to insert a new section of pipe to raise the pipework about 1 cm.
The existing pipe has an outside diameter of 36 mm.
The pipes available in catalogues are listed as 32 mm or 40 mm.
I understand that a nominal 32 mm plastic waste pipe has an outside diameter of 34.5 mm. Is this the right pipe?
