    Hi, just a quick question from me today.

    I don't have the tools or the know-how to solder and I don't have the tools to bend copper

    I want to change a couple of radiators which means shorter pipes than what is currently there for the current radiators. Al the pipework is surface mounted and not buried.

    Would I be able to do this job using copper compression connectors/90 degree elbows? I've used these for various sink plumbing, so I am assuming that its the same concept? Are there any issues with doing it this way?

    Thanks in advance

    No, compression are ok, just not as tidy if they are on view.
