Yes to both. Will look neater as well.So 8mm clipped to skirting board itself .........
I was trying to make it more robust by having 15mm instead of 8mm above floor, the only hiccup was this dog-leg tail bend in 15mm.
Sounds like you think it is better to get back to 8mm for the whole run but routed snugger and less exposed.
>> Is that instead of mixing 15mm above floor and 8mm below?
>> Would that be your favoured option from where I am now?
Or should this be a gentle bend with no elbow?
>>> Also. Would you be doing this at all based on what I have described, just to pull a rad and its tails in closer to the wall?
>>> Or would you have left it? See Now and Proposed in sketch in earlier post << Your opinion, just for my curiosity please!
Definitely worth doing
and .....If you have 8mm main pipe to radiator why not extend this in 8mm bring it up behind joist
I would also take 8 mm to the rad.
, perhaps using larger copper tube on the outside.
You know, I think you're right. All this effort and pondering trying to use a gentle bend for more efficient flow when my gut feeling as a DIYer would be to go for elbows above floor and where it gets tight below to use compression's. But that seems to get frowned on by the professionals, depending on who you speak to?Why not just solder a street elbow offset sectio
