    I would expect a standard bent pan connector would achieve that. If not a bent flexible. I’m not a big fan of those though.

    Probably to get the best finish the cold inlet would need to be cut down and tile removed from boxing. Fit offset connector as posted by someone above.

    just get someone recommended as this could easily be sorted out but just don't go for the cheap option thou then you'll get what you want

  12. The help came in two parts I'm afraid; the first part confirming the job was crap, and how it should have been done, and the second part told you what you have to do next, so it's really pre-empting what happens when the guy contacts to you for payment - but whilst it could have been put a bit more politely, it does sum up the situation.

  14. Review websites are a waste of time, often the customer is asked to rate the trader the minute they have left the job also most are just price driven anyway.

    Plumbers in general love to take the Mickey mate and yes we can see you are stressed out with that abortion of supposed plumber
    Give him a shout and explain you are not happy at all with the job and give him the opportunity to put it right
    If not then materials have to be paid for.If he supplied them, as for labour he should be paying you!
    This is run of the mill plumbing works and doesnt take an exceptional plumber to do it right,you seemed to have had a CCC in!
