    Hello lovely plumber experts.
    I've 'fitted' a floor mounted cabinet with a basin.
    Waste is fixed height through the tiled wall.
    Have cut a notch in the back of the cabinet to get it flush to the wall.
    No space behind the cabinet backboard to plumb. (30-35mm only)
    Connecting a p trap, bottle trap etc means the exit from those is too high.
    Connecting p trap, bottle trap to waste hits the shelf.
    I do not want to cut into the shelf as the vanity was fitted FOR its shelf/storage. I'd prefer not to use a FLEXCON pipe.
    Any thoughts, ideas, solutions would be greatly appreciated.
    I have attached pictures.
    Any thoughts, opinions regarding the McAlpine Space Saver WHB-1 instead of the above?

    Use a solvent weld elbow looking up and then another into the P-trap? Might need a spigot bend out of the trap, cut to size if space is tight. Although looks like you’ll be able to cut the pipe back a bit there if needed.
    Screwfix sell them in packs of five but they’ll be available singly in plumbers merchants.

    Or even just push fit, depending on what pipe is coming out the wall.

    Not a fan of push fit waste fittings

    I prefer them as the compression fittings always seem to come lose eventually.

    Tbh solvent weld is far superior to both. Push fit and compression both have there place tho :)
