Vanity basin waste extension??

Hi all

I'm doing a cosmetic makeover of my ensuite and going to replace the vanity top that has a built in sink to a merbau laminated panel with a basin that sits on top. My problem is that the waste pipe will be too short by about 200mm. Probably a dumb question, but can I buy an extender or something similar, or do I need to replace the entire waste pipe with a longer one?

 

Thanks!

Re: Vanity basin waste extension??

I'm sure I've seen extension kits at Bunnings but if they don't have, just buy a few of these threaded couplings and connect them together to get the desired length. Does that make sense?

 The alternative would be cutting pipe and extending with a coupling/sleeve but this is extra worth/complexity and not necessary.

 

Hope this helps @DIYMum

Thanks @ProjectPete! I'll pop down to my local Bunnings tomorrow and head straight for Aisle 54 😊 Is it sad that I know that's the plumbing aisle?? 😂😂

Definitely not sad, I'm the same for my 2 local Bunnings stores. But now I'm getting the biggest one in Australia as my local so will need to learn the new layout 😀
