Drain hopper compatibility

by 8PTD » Wed Jun 24, 2009 3:14 pm

I have had to remove a broken 12 inch x 12 inch, salt glaze, drain hopper from the base of a down flow pipe.

The inside diameter of the pipe in the ground is 6 inch (150mm) while the external dia. is 9 and a half inches. (240mm)

The only drain hoppers I can find have an outlet pipe of 100mm. (4 inch)

I have not got the room to add a load of reducers as it would raise the new hopper to a ridiculous height.

This problem must have happened to others.

Any place still stocks sells hoppers to fit 6 inch pipes?

Any suggestions, please?
