    Plumber help needed

    Can anyone give me some advice as I need some plumbing work done around nottingham.

    I am after replacing bathroom sink and tap (with a new one I have) moving the toliet over about 3 inches.
    Also I want a new radiator put under the window and the other one in the room taken out (So bascially move the radiator from one side of the room to the other but I need the radiator) This is moving about 4 meters.
    And the last job is to split the pipe going to my kitchen taps so I can have a dishwaher. Also put flexable hoses on for the taps so i replace the sink easily in the future.

    Anyone know rouvhly how much that would cost?

    £500?? that's how much I would charge and I'm not a plumber and never used one. They'll probably tell you not worth the trouble moving the toilet 3 inches, I speak from experience of moving a light fitting one foot lol

    By the way you could probably do the dishwasher splitter yourself, just a matter of turning off the stop cock cutting some pipes and bingo you have a dishwasher splitter :thumbsup: Moving the radiator would involve welding and pulling up floor boards, I'd probably try it myself if I had any welding experience but I don't.

    watch out theres lots of dodgy tradesmen around nowadsy!

    If the soilpipe goes through the wall at the back, this is an easy one. Just purchase an offset pan connector and this will allow you to move it over, or 2 if the movement is not enough.

    Radiator moving. Is this upstairs and have accessible wooden floorboards ?

    Pipe Splitting. Polyplumb do a great range of "push fit" fittings. Simply cut your existing pipe (after turning water supply off) and push on a "push fit" Tee and then push back in the existing pipework for the sink. Place a small length of copper in the branch of the Tee and cap this with a compression service valve, allowing you to turn back on the water supply to the rest of the house, and you can plumb in the appliance at your leisure.

    Have fun, PM me if you want me to make it clearer.

    The Soilpipe is inside the house from the toilet it goes left from the back of the toilet about 2 meters then out of another wall to the sewer. Thanks

    The Radiator is downstairs but there are wooden floorboards, so the pipe needs to go to the other side of the room basically directly opposite.

    So your saying for the kitchen, just get one of these push fit splitters and do it myself?

    thanks for your help, might PM you when I am not at work, are you a plumber/gas man?

    "PUSH TO FIT" ARE GREAT AND EASY!

    DID MY ENTIRE CENTRAL HEATING MYSELF USING PTF- NEVER HAD A LEAK!

    As the other post stated £500 tops but go with a recommended plumber if you can save a lot of headaches, I'm guessing your moving the cistern as well?, not a major job as modern cistern's don't require outside overflows, so if yours is an old one just change the flush mechanism. Any parts you can get from screwfix (not bad quality for what you need) and go via quidco for a further 6 %. :thumbsup:.

    As long as the soil pipe goes backwards you should be able to sneak an offset pan connector in there. I was an electrician & a plumber in a past life. Got a cushy desk job now

    Cool, I might see if that will let me have enough space, as the radiator is to close, so need to see if 50mm is enough but great advice, Thanks I done a gas man course done it and then never used it but never dealt with any water stuff, and now in office too... the shame lol
