Hi all.
My twin waste pipe outputs have a internal diameter of 23.5 mm.
Im racking my brains trying to think of what to use as bungs,for the purpose of pipe cleaning.
Iv tried stuffing a rag up them ,but that leaks.

Any suggestions on what to try,as a bung?

Put the waste pies on, and lift the loose ends up so they are the same height or higher than the drains in the sink. That should contain the cleaner.

No eBay APP ID défined in Kunena configuration

Have a look here.

Sometimes, often actually, I hate this forum, or the software running it.
Have a search for similar sized rubber bungs.
There are a lot of places, the one I tried to link to had various sizes, even an oversize one which could be trimmed down to the size you need.

Many thanks ,it looks like the 22mm to 25mm tapered bung should do the job.

Can you not raise the side off the caravan i.e like on a levelling ramp or car ramp to get them to an angle where the solution will not run out of the pipes so the van is on a tilt ? (If possible)

I think that as the sink is about 3 feet off the ground the van would tip over before it was raised far enough !! :ohmy:
