    Hey I have a mixer basin tap with copper tails to install to a pedestal basin, However due to were the tails exit the tap I can't hide the hot and cold pipework in the pedestal like you usually can by offsetting the pipe to the taps, anyone come across this before?

    Usually with the pipes securely fixed to the tap and then passed through the basin, you can bend them a bit to tuck them in.....but they won't cooperate too many bends as the copper work hardens. Is this possible with you?

    Can use flexible tap connectors instead of copper tails and tuck it in pedestal.
