    Hi, changing a couple of old single panel radiator i bathrooms to a towel radiators which protrudes an inch further out when fitted.

    The central heating pipe fittings come straight out of the floor. I can make the bend using some elbows but wondered if there was a pre-made fitting that can be bought, as someone told me they could be bought?

    Thanks in advance

    You can chase out the concrete and reposition pipes... Its down to how much work you want to do and how you want it to look. If you're redoing the bathroom ie retiling the floor, you might as well go the extra mile and reposition the pipes out of the floor or, even better... The wall.

    I didnt have that option on the above job as customer wasn't bothered and floor has UFH.
