Ours is straight down to the tank. Easy to measure with the wand.

I'm wondering if I should just take up the toilet and pull up the pipe and cut it off?
Any fix from below would be a huge task.

Don't think you can pull the pipe if it is glued to the tank.

Ok, I was afraid that would be the case. Darn

Here's a thought. Get a grinding wheel, grinding stone, etc. or something similar that goes into a drill. Get a long drill bit extender long enough to place the grinding wheel below the end of the tube. Set your drill on high speed and put the grinding wheel below the end of the tube and pull up. Little by little you should be able to grind the end of the tube upward. The grindings will be flushable in the tank. Probably need several wheels as you grind them down. It sounds a little crazy but I bet it would work.

It will take a while but it is simple work compared to the alternatives.

Something like this but bigger that you can pull up on. Hopefully you can find something a little more aggressive than that wheel in the photo to speed things up.

They make internal PVC cutters. It is a small saw blade on a spindle

I had thought of that too but what do you do with the piece that falls off into the tank when you cut it.


I think the direction both of us are going in is the solution. There has to be something you can do from the top without all the work of dissembling the tank and such.
