Please help! I've gone and bought the wrong taps for my rolltop bath. icon_redface.gif The ones I've got come on now out the side of the bath and the ones I've bought come out the top. Are there any gadgets out there to help, like an elbow piece?

Hi,
The taps i bought aren't like those in the pics above. I bought a shower mixer tap that should fit a bath that has holes on the top, but hadn't realised icon_redface.gif that my bath has the holes on the side of the bath. Rather than bin them on resell them i wanted to buy some kind of elbow so i could fit them

This is a no brainer because the side fixing taps are a total different design you could do it but they would look a right state. Total no brainer get rid and start again, i know ebay is great for bargains but you cant go wrong with a good plumbers merchants for these items. Stick a pencil behind your ear and tape measure on your hip and you might even get trade discount lol.
