hi all,

looking for some advice on a leaking 90degree push fit connector under the bathroom sink for the cold water tap. Its a slow dripping leak and I've tried to hand tighten them with various results, sometime slowing the leak but it still remains. I believe the leak is either on the upper larger connector or the vertical part of the 90degree push fit. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

any idea on what other parts i'll need?

I will be ordering a 10mm 90degree push fit elbow, a 10mm insert from screwfix. Anything else I might need?

You'll need a short length of 10mm pipe too, and use a normal elbow instead of the stem elbow they've used there as that's what caused the problem by being too short.
Especially as it's only 10mm I'd be tempted to get rid of the elbow and just use a curved bit of plain pipe, the whole point of plastic is you don't need loads of expensive fittings as it's flexible.

Get 15mm flexi tap hoses and step it down to the 10mm using a reducer at the wall... that would be the easiest solution for you, if not the best!
