    Red face P trap toilet to S trap

    I bought the wrong toilet made for a P trap and I have a S trap. Can someone please tell me if there is an adapter available that to suite a P Trap toilet onto a S trap?

    Hi,

    Certainly is, they can be cut to length too, within limits.

    A small difficulty may arise if your floor collar is earthenware and not plastic, but there is a fitting for that too.

    Your plumber will advise

    Why not just swap it? I did when the first (sacked) plumber let me down in the pre-slab-laying department. No problems at all.

    Do you still have your receipt and was it recently purchased? I've done "change of mind" exchanges/returns with Bunnings heaps of times before. They even take returns without receipt - but you just get a store credit to be used in 14 days....

    Hi,

    Yes, at a large plumbing suppliers. I see Reece Plumbing are in Brissy, or K & R, some mob like that. You are looking for something like this (attached) but take care as the finned bottom seal on this exact type may not suit your floor collar.

    A real plumber might help you with a comment here

    Cheers

    I guess using this adapter means the toilet will sit much further forwards from the wall than a normal S trap?

    Hi,

    Well it did not in my case as the plumber cut the bend to length (it was supplied in the box with the dunny - I was most interested). I think without experience there is another type of bend which will cope with a difficult set-out. It sort of goes forwards under the P-trap outlet.

    Cheers
