Hi, How close can two elbow joints be? I want to put the pipe into the wall and need to create a 90 degree turn before coming back to original direction straight away. I am using elbow joints with solder already in them so I just need to heat up. Can I have them up against each other like in picture or just a bit apart so solder can come out?

Thanks. If I used two of these connected, what would I then use to connect the male end to a 15mm pipe?

Either a coupling, or just use one street elbow, and the other female x female. The setup you show is ok, as long as the pipe is full socket in both elbows.

As CBW says above, you dont need straight unions.
