    Afternoon all,

    Need to undo the pipe connecting the cistern to the bowl, its seems pretty tight and a bit cruddy so i don't want to turn it the wrong way. Am i write in thinking it's clockwise to undo?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes clockwise, assuming its being undone on the outside of the cistern. Anticlockwise if your undoing it inside the cistern.
