    Hi all. I have water dripping down our wall rather bad no water inside just from the hole. I'm guessing I have a split in the pipe?. It's meant to be coming out the pipe. It's coming out the wall... So you think replace/cut it all out and replace plastic weld. etc ? Thanks paul

    2 things, yup, the pipe needs to be repaired, probably easier to take the pipe out through the wall and replace. Also the pipe should really be upped to 32mm to reduce the chance of it freezing.

    not with any security no, completely different system. You do get 21.5mm compression fitting though.

    What's the run like outside? It may be better to drill a new hole outside to get 32mm through the wall. If possible I would keep the run inside as far as possible to reduce the chances of it freezing.
