I'm planning to refurbish my bathroom and this will involve moving the W.C
about 3'. The soil pipework at the moment is the push-fit kind and there is
plenty of room under the floor for the new sections. The pan is screwed to a
wooden floor. This seems to be quite a straightforward job, but are there any
pitfalls I should look out for? Will (cough) smells be a problem whilst moving
the pan? All hints gratefully recieved.

Cheers

I recently had to move a wall and its associated plumbing about three
feet, including the line from the upstairs toilet. The smell was almost
unnoticeable, and not a problem. (I also made sure nobody upstairs could
flush at the time...:-))

Check with building codes in your area, moving WC 3 feet could require
another vent pipe.

As to smells coming form the open pipe, bag it with a plastic bag until
ready to make connections, then bag the open end until the WC is installed.

Also remember the rules of plumbing:

1) hot on the left
2) cold on the right
3) crap does not run up hill
4) vent it

Have a nice day!
