I want to fit one of these http://www.plumbworld.co.uk/pressure-equalising-valve-344-230 due to having mains cold and gravity fed hot water with a mixer tap. Is it ok to just saw the copper pipes a few inches below the taps and fit it right there underneath the bath? If so what is the easiest way to make the connections for someone who's not very up-to-speed with plumbing?

Is this definately not a DIY job then?

Without sounding like i'm answering my own question I thought it might be possible using the often mentioned 'push fit' connection type and some flexible plastic pipe. But I didn't know whether these can be added to cut copper pipe.

yes use a pipe cutter NOT a saw or you will have more leaks than a welshmans garden

and dont forget the inserts icon_wink.gif

Compression fittings on valve, so push fits not required.
