    Hi all, after a recent refurb we left the hot and cold pipes protruding and simply put some valves on (see below):

    The old shower was an Aqua Lisa however I am having difficulty purchasing a new shower with the right type of connectors. All the ones seem to have these (see below) :

    Can I just purchase some kind of push-fits to the existing pipes or do I need to remove my new tiles? Obviously, I do not want to have to remove the new tiles and would prefer an easier way. I would really appreciate any tips or advice on what shower connections I need.

    Thank you!

    Sorry, I do not understand the last comment? I bought it from screwfix. Do they sell some kind of coupling or push-fit that will do the job? Thanks

    /EDIT , I do not see any image? Can you describe what it is?
