    A bristan tap that has been sitting in my garage caused me some agro earlier today.

    The flexi tails would not screw on to the 15mm tap connectors on the copper pipe. The flexi ends were too small. I then purchased 15mm to 10mm couplings and they wouldn’t go on to the 10mm either! The flexi were slightly too big for the 10mm.

    In the end I purchased new flexis with 15mm ends.

    Any ideas on what the earlier fittings may have been?

    Aha. Maybe…
    Can you get a tap connector for that size?
