Couple of weeks ago, in this thread I said "You do see all sorts of bodges involving flexible waste connectors going back up to the old higher outlet, but water doesn't flow uphill..."

I knew it'd only be a matter of time before I saw one to get a photo of :lol:

Exactly that. A cheeky little saturday afternoon call out to fix a "leaky sink waste" - I thought I'd be there half an hour at the most, ended up core drilling a new hole (12" solid wall, with concrete render on the outside -- took an age to get through).

Considering pretty much that whole section of pipework you can see in the photo was constantly full of water, it was a surprisingly small drip from one of the compression fittings.

One never knows when small sink problem might plot twist and evolve into drilling a solid wall.. wow. Just one of those Saturdays ah :salute: :salute:
