Hi

I am replacing my bath taps with a thermostatic mixer tap/shower and the current pipework is plastic hepworth.

With reference to the pic attached .. once i remove the hot tap (shown) via the brass nut is it just a simple job of reconnecting the new tap and tightening the nut or will i need to replace the insert (not sure if these wear or get damaged sometimes during removal) or anything else i need to be aware of.

Or should i use a "hep2o 22mm x 3/4" bsp female connector white"
Product code P027301

Aslo can someone clarify if i need a special tool to remove the plastic 22mm to 15mm reducer. I think i have the old type of hepworth fitting but am not sure how they come apart.

Thanks for any help /advice in advance

I would change the Hep for copper and be safe and sound with a good job at the end of it ;)
