    I'm looking to replace our kitchen tap with a new mono mixer tap with flexi tap connectors.

    Our existing piping looks different to ones in videos online - can anyone explain which existing bits I need to remove and whether I'll need to get any additional connectors/etc to fit the new tap?

    E.g. do I remove just the copper pipes? Will I then need some sort of connector to screw in the new flexi hoses?

    Any pictures of the ends of the flexis? They aren't all the same.

    Thanks for your reply. I haven't bought the new tap yet - is there a particular type of flexi end which is easier to install or more durable?

    Think you’ll need to trim copper coming out of the hep2o and get flexi’s with compression ends.
