    20170528_111945.jpg Hi

    In the photo attached I need to extend the 10mm rad feed to the radiator valve. The rad valves are 15mm, I was going to use a reducing nut, but maybe due to having to extend I should attach 155 pipe to the end?

    Whats the easiest way to accomplish this? Should I look at soldering, or maybe pushfit?

    cheers, can see now ! go 15 mm from valve to below flooring and solder into 10mm useing a reducer. if you want to make it real nice use chrome plated copper 15mm. be aware you can not solder the chrome you have to file it all off get to clean copper and don't use push fit at all.

    Thanks ill got for the reducer option.

    I should have mentioned, I have some chrome plated brass tubes which will cover the nasty copper pipes so it should look much nicer.

    Better still: sink the pipes in the wall and come out of the wall and up into the valves ;)
