    Need a bit of advice on what parts I'll need.

    I have 10mm poly connected to 15mm copper which goes to the existing tap.

    I want to take the old tap and copper pipe out and replace it with my new tap which has braided hose feeds.

    I also want to fit a ballofix fix valve of some sort between the 10mm poly and the new braided hose and this is where I'm unsure of what size/type of fitting I need, ideally from screwfix, wickes or b&q as there all near me.

    Poly is fine as I know the size but the threaded connector on the hose is roughly 22mm (externally). What do I need to join the two?

    I haven't. It's what's there already.

    There's only a small section of it which comes from an elbow to the copper which goes to the existing tap.

    I would take that put as well! And have everything in 15mm.

    Thanks for the tip.

    What about putting in a isolation valve and connecting to the braided hose?
