    Hi there. Apologies to all the experts if i sound like an utter plank, but i\\\'m out of ideas on this one.. I have recently taken my Mira shower off to re-plaster. Having put it back on there is now a leak appeared at the water inlet. Connecting the copper pipe to the plastic pipe inside is a wickes push-to-fit connector which I have twice replaced. Any ideas please? Is there a washer or something needed on the plastic pipe.. I\\\'m baffled..
    Regards
    Dunc
