    Hello, Please help me out! Thanks in advance

    THE JOB:
    I am removing a standard horizontal radiator, and moving the pipes 2m to the right to install a new vertical 'designer' radiator.

    PIPES LOCATION:
    The pipes in my house run 3" above the skirting board behind the plasterboard
    (perfectly horizontal return pipe alligned above the flow) They are 10mm copper pipes.

    PROBLEM:
    My radiator and TRV valves are all 15mm and the house pipes are all 10mm. I don't have a pipe bender so want to work with 10mm plastic which I have lots spare in the garage.

    QUESTION:
    How do I plumb the pipes up into my radiator? What parts do I need to get the correct elbows etc. Please see the below link for photograph, and the other to see an example of the radiator fitted.

    You want your pipes exiting the wall exactly as your image.
    You can use a reducing set or soldered end feed reducer. Some wall tracking needed and a small pipe bender to make it professional.

    I'd bend those into place from where they sit. No cutting needed.
    15mm will look better though exiting the wall and insulated.
