extending hot water pipes

hi all, we have an en suite bathroom, with shower ( not electric) basin and loo.
The room is a decent size and we have decided to put a bath in the room.

currently the basin taps are fed by 15mm pipework, could a plumber fit T junctions to these pipes and extend them to the bath.
so feeding the bath and basin from the same supply pipe.

we have a Worcester Bosch combi boiler fitted last year.
the boiler is in the room next to the en suite bathroom, the en suite was fitted out last year but luckily we only put vinyl on the floor so not too difficult to remove.

Yes, as its a combi, teeing off in 15mm is fine. Depending on which taps are used on the bath, you may need to up the pipe size to 22mm below the taps, to accommodate 3/4'' tap connectors.

Your plumber will have 15mm to 22mm connectors for this.

Why not use 3/4 x 15mm tap connectors. :confused:

It's the obvious way that I have used for 35 years.

Why use inappropriate fittings?

thanks for the advice, cut a hole in some of the floor on saturday and located the pipes, looks like they used 15mm copper from the boiler to the ensuite, then that branches off using plastic to copper that goes to the taps.

he used 40mm platic pipe for the condensate pipe, this goes for 2.7m under the ensuite floor, could the plumber plumb the basin waste into this.

thanks for the advice,at the stage of - is this worth doing so trying to get as much info as possible before getting quotes.

Good for you mate! I'm really made up for you! :rolleyes:

This is an advice forum where different people may suggest different ways of doing things. It's not designed for pedantic old codgers to try to score points and to start arguments over the rights and wrongs of different methods.

Get over it. :rolleyes:

(Can't help thinking you're a bit of an rrrs though)
