    im installing vert desg rad....
    1. is there a set distance from floor..mines at the moment is 6" if i add str8 trv...i have only 2" above floor, no water as yet so can alter height

    2. does it matter what size of feed pipes to use , 10 or 15 mm , mines is 10mm....but thinkin of reducer[10-15mm] to fit to give me 15 mm at rad

    3 the rad has no tails pipes ,do i have to buy them seperately or do they come with trv , im thinking of buying draytona valves

    thanks help appreciated

    1) What ever is practical

    2) 10mm should be fine. Can use a reducer to 15mm if you want but why?

    3) look arond and buy whatever style/finish you want. Check on pipe connection size
