Title of Question:

Toilet Waste Pipe Leak


Name: Dave Hussey  City:

Question: The waste pipe from my toilet (of the concertina variety) leaks where it connects to another pipe (which fits inside). Even if I don't flush the toilet for a couple of days it doesn't dry out completely. I've tried blocking it up with putty but this doesn't sort the problem out fully. I need something waterproof to cover the join round the edge and seal it up completely but what do I use?

Answer: I have the same problem as you two weeks ago I applied an epoxy over the crack so far, so good. But you have to work fast gets hot very fast and the working time is not long and it hardens like steel.
