Just about to install my new electric shower and have a quick question.

I am looking to use push-fit with plastic pipe as existing cold feed pipework uses it.

I understand I need a compression joint on the straight connection to the shower inlet but was wondering what type of elbow joints to use to bring the pipe through the wall and inline with the inlet.

Should i use compression fittings on these 2 elbow joints as well or could i use the standard pushfit elbows.

Diagram will make more sense:

Cheers, could i take an elbow straight onto the inlet pipe or does it need a straight run coupler?
