With the warm weather on the way I need to replace the soil stack and connect up the three wastes following a bathroom refurb.

At the moment there are two wastes - one for the toilet and another three for basin/shower/bath. In order to tidy up the pipework on the outside and smarten up the patio area below I was wondering if I could remove the downpipe used for the basin/shower/bath? Is there any reason for not doing this? I am guessing that this all relates to evil smells......

The old cast iron soil pipe is not in a good way. What's the best way to take it down? Break it in sections with a hammer? Better cover up the windows!

The replacement plastic pipe is fitted to the clay pipe below with the standard type of seal. Should I also put a collar of mortar around this? I was planning on it.

I've not fitted a boss to a soil pipe before. I guess a standard hole saw is the way to go and silicon sealant to seal around it?

Thanks in advance.

I've never fitted a boss

Not sure about the rest but not silicone sealant, use glue-fit waste adhesive.

Job done thanks very much. Piece of cake really but taking down the cast iron was worrying.

Next task is to paint the solvent weld pipe black. What's the most suitable paint for this?

Thanks in advance.

If I remember rightly gloss paint (2 coats), but with no undercoat.

You can make sure by posting the question here- http://www.ultimatehandyman.co.uk/forum ... um-f6.html
