I moved into new home recently and want to connect up my rainfall shower head. Only thing is I don't want to use a flexible hose this time. I want to put in a proper chrome pipe, like the picture. My question is how do I connect a chrome pipe to the taps? Is there a connector I can buy? Do I have to solder it? Want to do this myself rather than getting in a plumber so advice appreciated. I have also attached a pic of the current taps.
Yup, you will be struggling to find something that looks good. All depends on the type and size of that connection on the tap. It may be a 3/4" BSP but would need to get the nut off and see if it's suitable for a 3/4" compression chrome tap connector. Trial and error I think with that one.
Thanks Jim and Madrab. What if that top section was taken off - the bit with the hose and placeholder for the head? At least then I'd be central.
Also, how would I even connect a chrome pipe to that? The pipe would have no thread at either end for example. Basically if I have a length of chrome pipe to run to the ceiling, cut to size, but no thread at either end - how do you connect that to the shower head and tap outlet? Thanks
