Hi. I'm in the process of installing a new mixer tap in the kitchen. First time Im doing this and have a question about fitting the 2 new copper pipes to the valves.
The new pipe ends are bare with no nuts on them. Once ive screwed the other ends into the new tap, how can I propperly fit the bare ends into the valves?

On the old pipes there's a metal 'lip' preventing the nuts from coming off...can I just cut the bottom of the old pipes and put the nuts onto the new pipe? or will that leak?
What's the solution?

cut the old pipes and take the two nuts off to use on the new pipes.
then you'll need two new copper 15mm olives. from any diy, plumbers merchants.
