    Hi,

    First time here and looking forward to learn.

    I am right now doing up my new house, build with 9 inch thick brick walls, and I am using the HEP2O Push fit system.

    I have a room adjacent to a yard and in this room i will have a tap so I have a push fit 15mm pipe from this room, through the wall and going out into the yard. I now need to fit an elbow to the wall so I can route it to a main line. All fine and dandy till now.

    However my query is more about astethics. So the elbow itself will be protruding out so it will be an issue to clip the pipe (on other side of elbow) to the wall with the wall clips. I know it can be done but it will be a bit ugly due to the clearence of the elbow to wall. And I like straight things (OCD??).

    Any best practices out there? Would love to learn on how you usually do this or if I just have to lump it.

    Thank you:)

    A copper elbow soldered would look so much neater.
    Don't forget to cater for freezing weather.

    The OP's in Malta, very rarely drops below double figures there.

    Prefer to stay in the DIY and not get into soldering :)

    Nibble a bit out the wall to make the hole wider to accommodate the fitting.
