    Hi,
    I'm fitting a smart toilet and it comes with an angled ball valve with filter for regulating the water supply. The flexi goes on the outlet part fine but I'm a bit unsure of the inlet side. It has a ribbed thread and no nut. A standard compression nut and olive will fit onto it fine, but it has a flat end with no internal bevel to help with squeezing the olive.
    Unsure on how to fit to 15mm copper as I've not seen a compression fitting like this before. Is it even a compression fitting?
    Cheers, Lubemonkey.

    That looks like a fitting for what is commonly known as a bum wash gun rather than a smart toilet.
