Hi Everyone,
Hope all’s okay.

Regarding cutting hole for waste pipe for toilet.
The floor tiles are down.
The waste pipe hole could be slightly higher due to tile thickness.
I haven’t seen what toilet is going to be fit as the mother in law hasn’t bought it yet. ( the difference between outlaws and in-laws is that outlaws are wanted)
Do I just cut with existing waste hole and it’s the plumbers problem?
How should I proceed?

Plumber can use an offset pan connector if it's only tile thickness you're worrying about.

Thanks Jcr,

Tiles I took up were 5 mm , ones I’ve laid are 10mm . Is an offset pan connector still ok?

Pictures would help mate ?if it's a like for like swap then crack on if not just make sure you can make it work, nothing looks worse than a toilet having to be spaced off the wall . Kop

Cheers Kop,

Sorry mate no pictures.
Was just worried about tile thickness difference.
I think I can persuade the mother in law to get something similar, like for like. If not she can tile the bleeding thing herself
Thanks for your reply.
