    0F167AE9-6AE7-44F0-BA1D-B89FEC11B349.jpeg Hi, The plumbing in my kitchen is a mess !
    Can anyone please tell me the best way of connecting the outside tap pipe in an inaccessible area ( the cut one to left of pic as it needs to be nearer the wall so its in the service area of the cupboard )

    Ideally Id like to avoid joints at all there but Im not sure how viable that is.

    I also need to replace the cold washing machine outlet (right) with a compression fitting to fit the new tap tails.

    (I also need to run the hot feed (top left) further into the sink cupboard to somewhere I can fit a tail tap connector to that too ) requiring another inaccessible joint !

    Thanks

    Only way to be sure is to cut it all out and solder new pipe in so it's all fit for purpose, obsolete sections removed and it's all in the right place, once a joint is soldered properly it is classed as part of the pipe. Too many old compression fittings can end up being a nightmare.
