HOW TO INSTALL SOIL AND WASTE PIPE 110mm – Plumbing Tips


(power tools grinding) – Right guys, this the job
that we’re on at the moment. Mark’s just chopping a
load of wood out the back, and look, just abject,
complete hell in here at the moment, but it’s
one of those things, loads of stuff to do in here, it’s just never-ending. But we are filming in this
little alcove in here today, because we’ve got the
soil stack just down here, and that is gonna be running up there. We’ve got a toilet just here, we’ve got a toilet just here as well, so we’re gonna be 45ing just through here, but also in this bit here
it’s gonna be a utility room, so I’ve got to put on a little
bit of a half inch there, ready to go up. But then on this side of the job, we’ve gotta put a
wall-hung boiler up there, underfloor heat manifold, so obviously I’ve got my little
inch and a half down there for the high pressure relief for our pressurised system in here, and the same goes for
how I’m gonna link up, we’ve got a big unbedded
cylinder going in here as well, and that’s also gonna be going in there. The high pressure relief will
be going in there for that, so there’s lots and lots for us to do. But today’s little video, what we’re gonna be looking
at today, nice an simple, nice and easy, is just
getting our four-inch stack up here, 45 through, we’ve
got a branch like that for the bogs up there, and then our little
breather pipe out the top, which to be honest I’m not
gonna show you how to do, it’s just the same as everything else. But really it just give you an idea of why put bosses in, how we instal them, and also just how easy this job is. So if you’ve got this to do, then you think well, I’m not 100% happy about tackling this
one, we’ll show you how. Or at least I’ll be able
to give you a little bit of a tip, a bit of advice on how to do it. So yeah, importantly,
there’s obviously a lot to do at this job today, but like I said, we’ve
got some brackets here, so I’ll give you a quick
heads-up how we can just get all this in, so I
hope you enjoy the video, remember guys, what you gotta do, is hold tight throughout the night. Just gonna finish this cup of tea and get my tripod over here as well. Ha hey! – [Announcer] Plumberparts.co.uk, home of Find Your Plumber. – So this is pretty much
where we’re working, we’ve got our soil stack coming up here, it’s gonna 45 up there, but for the first few metres I’ve got at least a nice
bit of straight pipe. So the first thing I’m gonna
do is measure out my clips. The way I do that is just
pop my little spirit level on here like so, and then
I know that I’ve got a straight level all the way up, and then choose the heights
where I want my clips to be. Watch this, easy-peasy right now. So I’m literally just popping
this down the centre here, I put my line up there, get
my bubble nice and centred, so I just nick that. And now I know I can put
this right flat on the wall, just pop it in like so. Then just work my way
all the way up the wall. As you can see, we’ve got our nick there, got another line here,
there’s our stack down there. So basically I’m gonna put a
bracket somewhere about here, probably, and then I’m gonna measure
up, just got a mark up here, I’m gonna put my other
bracket just about there. Nice and easy. Obviously make sure that
when your guys first fix, they first fix the right
width out of your bracket, which they have done here. So all I need to do is just
get these little babies marked up and popped in. Now guess what, because I’ve
measured and done my brackets properly, my pipe will
also be level naturally, because it’s gonna go
nicely into those brackets. I’m gonna bang them on right now. Right so this is the first
little stumbling block we’ve got. So first we’ve got to get up here, and there’s a line that I’ve
got from the centre of that all the way down to here, next to our line of
where we’re keeping our, we’re tucking this into the corner nicely. So, we’ve got two 45s here. Usually, in a perfect
world, we’d have been able to keep this over just like this, so we could pop them two 45s
inside each other like that and not have to do anything. But because this is slightly further away, if we marry up and hold
that 45 just there, you can see we’ve got a little
bit of a gap, haven’t we? So what I’ve got to do, is get my tape, it’s quite a difficult one holding this, and measure from my
little finger just here, to my thumb here pretty much. Obviously I’ll do that in a
minute with the camera down, then I can cut the socket of
a full length of four inch, and stuff that on there, and then once we’ve got
that bit made up right, we can put a little stub on
here ready for our branch, we can actually sit that
right up here like so, ready to go in. And then we can do our big measurement of one long bit of pipe
all the way down from there all the way down to the bottom. So, I’m gonna measure that now, and then get this bit in. Bah! So I’m measuring 5 1/2 inches on here, I’m just gonna do this with
my little moulding saw. (saw buzzes) Little bit of a de-burr. Okay now this is a point where some of you seasoned plumbers might be like look, why are you using a file, Jimmy boy? Because, basically, a lot
of people aren’t gonna have 100 quid’s worth of de-burring
tool in their toolbox, are they, because they can’t be bothered to spend the money on it. So the idea is we chamfer
this bit off here, and then in a second or
two it’ll go into the actual main fitting much easier. We’re all chamfered off. Oh! Don’t worry, I’m just chamfering. A little tip for y’all if
you haven’t done this before, bit of Fairy Liquid for this, or you can get some silicone grease will do just as good a job. Then you don’t have to worry so. Get on you! Cor, that is tight today, innit? Come on, sweetheart. So there’s one of our
little beasts in, bang. There we go go, that’s that bit done. So now you can see that
we’ve got our little piece made up, effectively all we need to do now is measure a small bit of pipe, probably from about
here to just about here, because I know that’s where my T piece, my branch is gonna go in a minute. So I can just run that
down to here like so, just like that across there, and then this piece
will effectively lift up to about here, where it will
go in and socket in nicely. So then this bend is nicely out the way for this cover downstairs. So this’ll go up to here. So it sticks just there like that. There’s our 45, there’s our clip, here’s me holding it all up. I now know exactly how
long to measure from here down to our bottom bit just down there. We know that’s all gonna work out okay. So yeah, it’s just doing
it in the right way round. As you can see, the first
thing I did was measured all my levels and got my clips on. Let’s just pop down here and I’ll give you a quick heads-up on how
to do a nice little bit of solvent weld. The solvent weld glue is
cheap and leaks are expensive. I’ve opened this up before
when I was in a shower tray cubicle, and I got so high. Just basically watch out,
use it in a ventilated area. Make sure that your pipe’s nice and clean, look at that, lovely and
clean, look at that, beautiful. Some guys will say you
can etch it a little bit, get an etch on there so
then the actual solvent will bite into it. I know this stuff, I mean a
tonne of this is expensive, but slather it on, okay? Don’t skimp with this. As you can see, I don’t know if you can see my tub down there, lean your tub over towards the floor and then pick it back up again and then you’ll get plenty of this weld glue. Let me push this together,
give it a little twist. Basically you’re gonna
leave that for a set. We’ve got a little bit coming
out of the middle there. This part here, I will put in
once we actually get up there. And then that’ll basically
sit there like that and we’ve got our whole piece then for our loo and everything else. And that’ll just sit up there. But that bit we’ll do last. And now, we’ve got to basically
get another one of these, glue that onto this bit here, and then get our long
piece going all the way back to the top fitted in as well. So we know exactly
where we wanna end here, because I just wanna end roughly flush with the floor for that, and then, so we know that
we’re gonna have a socket on here, so you see that mark there? We’ve got a little mark
just on there like that, and that is where we’re gonna measure to. Watch my tape, just on
that mark just up there. Like so. Run my tape all the way down. And we’re gonna have to put a little boss just in this piece
here, up here like that. So we’re gonna be drilling ourselves a little hole just through here, okay, ready to go through there. So bosses, let’s have a
quick look at the boss. Some people call me the
boss, my wife doesn’t, which is good because we’ve
got an equal relationship. So what we have to do is we
need to get our hole saw set. You pick a hole saw size the
same size as your boss hole. I’ve got a drill somewhere. We want it to be as big as possible, you see there that that’s
exactly the right size for that. Literally, just get my drill,
drill it in a little bit. So you notice on a strap boss like this, it’s actually got a slight angle on it. There will be a top, so it
mentions on this one here, it says top, obviously
take that to be what it is. You also notice that any
inserts, be it any size, will have a little cut-out
notch on it like that, and that will also correspond to the top. So I know that these are
obviously wrong colour, god that’s annoying,
it’s one of those things. So usually what I’d say now is get your, get your solvent weld glue, and actually get that on
your insert fitting now, slop it on okay, like I
said, this stuff’s cheap, leaks are expensive. Any crap you’ve got wipe
away with your finger. Wait till it dries, and then
have an insane amount of fun in peeling it off later on. I love doing that, it’s
my favourite thing ever. Make sure that this
face is nice and clean. Also file off any burrs
or anything like that that are in there. So everyone’s got their
own way of doing this, I prefer to just get the solvent weld, and just get a fair bit of it on there. If you want, get a bit and put
it on the back end of this, as well, as you can see we’ve
got some notched-out holes. So there we go, we’ve got our boss up there, if you can see that in the distance, we’ve got a little zig-zag. What we’ve gotta do now is pop upstairs, going up to the noisy level now, where the chippies are and the builders, making loads of noise, ruining the plumber’s life. Oh no, he’s outta my way, he’s in here. Here he is, look. Here’s our pipe here, so our T
is gonna sit on there like so and then bog here, basin, bath. Or I think so, all the
drawings are on there. Look at him go, look at him go. And then, same this side really. Bog here, basin, but on this end, instead of having a bath,
you’ve got a shower. So that’s it really, this is
what we’re first fixing now, getting all that done. (power tool buzzes) So, anyway, right this now goes in here. Like so. And then we can serve all our boggy-wogs, and also get our stink out of the top. Glue like a good ‘un, okay. Don’t want any leaks,
don’t want any smell. Sling a bit round your hole as well. That’s the way to do it. And then the chippies
will redo this little bit of studding. Just give that a little wiggle there. And there we go, we’re in. That bit’s ready. And then, I think, will be the end of our little video about soil pipes of now, until we maybe return to
this job and film some more. (upbeat music)

  1. I HOPE YOU ALL enjoy as much as I enjoyed watching the guy who delivered the radiators to this job tread in 6 inches of freshly poured concrete!!!!

  2. top tip when drilling a boss hole make sure your drill is done up tight and the hole saw doesn't fall down the stack and stuck, so you haven't got to dig up up the group to get it out !!;)

  3. working with a plumber but he's not paying me… I got my tech cert level 2 but need to do my nvq and the way it's going I May have to pay 2000 just to do my nvq 😴 that's if I don't get the job with my local council as I have my interview for a plumbing apprenticeship Thursday coming, wish me luck #holdtight

  4. Thanks for the great video, these videos are a great help to me as i'm currently studying level 1 plumbing. Thanks again. 🙂

  5. Love all the video's. What is the grey fitting you glued into to the black boss called? Can I use one of those to push in the metal tube from a chrome bottle trap into that goes through the wall to the soil stack outside? Cheers

  6. What is that pipe he is using, it's like a push in with rubber ring inside the female end. Nothing like we use here in Australia.

  7. Is that PVC? Normally around here at least, on PVC we use a primer and glue. Is there a different adhesive in the UK?

  8. Cracking vid, I'm an apprentice so this stuff is gold to me!! One question; you finished of the vid you had it so the toilets were back to back, can you do this?

  9. Why are some parts push fit with a rubber o-ring (that I guess could perish) and some parts solvent weld which all being well last to dooms day? Always struck me as being silly as I would assume what you've done there will be boxed in so it can't be an access deal, can it?

  10. i'll much rather use a direct 110 by 50 by 110 tee with 50 mil branch being 45' and in combination with 45' lbow to create a seamless one piece tee. and another thing with the 50 mil strap bus that i hate is that it looks unprofesional. so yeah. nevertheless, nice work James! cheers mate

  11. It`s kinda weird to watch regulations of the UK, I`ve been working aboard about 4-5 years including norway/sweden/iceland and mostly everything is different. Why do you guys don`t use same parts everywhere? – You used couple of fit-in elbows and glued the rest. when you could just fit T instead of drilling the pipe.
    P.S. It is always fun to watch you! @HOLDTIGHT

  12. I think this is a great job , I've been working in the U.K. In the plumbing and pipe fitting industry for about 4 years. this man is as good as gold. obviously we all work in a different way so we all do things differently. Would love working with him !

  13. Naughty boy no offsets on the wetted length…..unless things have changed since I was serving my time In 1974.

  14. If you're welding together with solvent type glue, it's important to apply glue to both pieces before joining – also abrading the gloss off the pipe and socket, either with acetone or light sanding will give a leak free joint forever.

  15. I know im old school ,but what happened to installing a rodding eye at the very start of al soil stacks.Is this not code anymore then,i used to do this every time when we were installing cast iron with yarned and lead filled joints ,PS great videon just asking ok.cheers pete

  16. Find this very strange. I have been doing this for 15 years in iceland. We use pvc, pp and skolan dp all with rubber rings. Why do you use pp with rubber ring then at the top you clue it. The you drill a hole instead of useing a T.
    Its 2018 stop soldering copper. Use uponor, rehau or copper t with pressfittings

  17. Any idea what i can do if a kids toy has been put down one of them and got stuck..its causing toilet to fill up. I have no problems taking toilet off if need to

  18. Here in America the same stuff is done, they've got a newer style called "Pex" that I don't quite trust yet too. PVC plumbing is great, but I too am careful to stay clear of the acetone plumbing cement, when I was a teenager I enjoyed that kind of thing, but not now. Cheers from across the pond 🙂

  19. Never seen someone use that tool for cutting the pipe 😂😂
    Keep up the great work. Shoutout from Norway 🤙

  20. James , my soul pipe terminates in the loft with a valve on it . It’s hidden behind the false wall where the shower barn is above the bath . I want to rip out the bath and take away the false wall and move the pipe into the corner and box it in. Does it have to terminate into the loft space or can I just box it in halfway up the wall and drill a few breather holes in the ceiling ?

  21. U made this so straight foward nice work. Im overseeing my first new built home and this has helped me alot to understand part of the plumbers role so thanks

  22. Links to the tools I use everyday here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/shop/plumberparts

  23. I’d like to switch round my sink and toilet. Cast iron shitpipe and boxed in through downstairs room so don’t really wanna have to rip it out. The toilet and sink are only about 700mm away on same wall. Is it the norm to use a 90 to connect from new shitter position (back to wall concealed cistern so I can hide the pipe run) along a short run across to another 90 into cast iron shitpipe? What kinda distance would this add to the shitter position given I’m swapping close couples to concealed

  24. hi, I need some help.. I have a soil pipe that runs through my property from an upstairs flat.. recently every time they use washing machine.. the water emptying the washing machine hits 40mm pipes.. making it sound like someone pouring water on my bath… what can the problem be?
