The Europipe

Posted on March 30, 2016 by Thomas Dudley Ltd

Over the last decade the trend for installation of European and European style sanitary ware in the UK has, and continues to, grow substantially.

The main difference between traditional UK installations and the current European styles is the syphon/valve outlet sizing.

In the UK, this has always been traditionally 1.1/2” (38mm), whereas the European Standard is 2” (50mm). To fit European style cistern to a standard pan requires a flushpipe capable of reducing from 2” at the outlet to 1.5/8” where it is attached to the pan.

Quite often, even where a suitable flushpipe has been supplied with the original cistern fittings pack, it is found that they are not always of an adequate length to cover all situations, particularly when it comes to concealed or frame fitted installations. The Europipe is designed to overcome these type of installation problems.

  • Manufactured from one piece, rigid white PVC, it has high strength and rigidity allowing for a good seal to be made at either end.
  • With its standard size being 18” x 18” this allows the installer to cut the pipe horizontally or vertically to size, allowing greater flexibility in cistern height installation, and wall to pan distance.

If, however, you should be presented with a more irregular installation problem, on request this flushpipe can be manufactured, to a maximum height of 20”, and a maximum wall to pan length of 36”.
