    Looking for connection advice to go from an old copper inlet mono tap to an M10 inlet type. Is it just a case of removing the tap and connecting the supplied flexi's to the 15mm copper supply pipes? Thanks.

    you will usually find that the flemx hoses do not reach or need a fitting between the hose and the pipe or both. fairly easy for a diy'er to overcome with a bit of help from forum members. you will need a set of box spanners and wd40 to remove your tap by the looks of it. good luck. ,regards terry

    That tap has been leaking for a long time, post a picture showing the tap and sink.

    Thanks guys. Yep, replacing tap for one with flexi tails. I think they will reach ok. Have all the tools, penetrating fluid applied before attempting removal. 2017-05-20 12.18.41.jpg
