Been trying to find some plastic shims for leveling purposes, specifically a
toilet. Floor is not quite even and need to put some shims under one side
to level the toilet pan. Does anyone know where I can purchase such items?
Most builders' merchants stock them.

Thanks. I saw some others on some other DIY site which are strips of thin
plastic, just not sure where I saw them now.

Not quite, but thanks anyway. I will try and find the site, it showed
someone fitting a toilet and inserting plastic strips to level the
pan.....exactly the same thing I need to do.
This is what I am after.
Given up on screws now.

Oh dear. Look just a little further down the page!
I cannot take seriously any web site that recommends fitting a
macerator to a WC then pumping the contents up to 100 metres
horizontally and 6 metres vertically.
100 metres of 20mm bore pipe contains about 31 litres of potentially
projectile poo. When the pipe bursts (and please note I wrote "when")
there will need to be a clean-up of biblical proportions. ;-)
Who said anything about a macerator. All I am interested in is the plastic

No it doesn't.
The 100m of pipe has to flow away towards the drain, that is why the
vertical bit has to be first.
Anyway why would the pipe burst? Macerators aren't exactly high pressure.
Do make sure you fit a drain off at the bottom so you can drain the 6m that
may have sh!t left in.
A macerator is probably the only thing I would *want* a service contract on
The one I fitted recently was 32 mm outlet not a 22 mm one.
Well our old Saniflow lasted nearly 15 years with no problems. The outlet
got blocked once or twice when "wetwipes" were dropped down the loo but
other than that, it behaved faultlessly. Can't see why you think the the
pipes will burst.
A service contract might make sense on a complex expensive machine but seems
overkill on a simple jobbie mincer.

Its worth it if it avoids a sh!t job.

I thought that you were a CBF advocate.....
I'm probably a bit odd. I actually enjoy unblocking sewage filled drains.

Oh, lighten up!
