    Ok this has my head banging, although tired so hard to think straight at the minute.

    I have 15mm copper pipe it need to connect to 3/8 copper pipe.

    Can anyone link me to a compression fitting for a female end for 15mm pipe to male end for 3/8 pipe.

    This BSP and metric with imp has got me head banging.

    Thanks

    Wayne :)

    Methinks you need a 15x 10mm reducing coupler?
    Never seen 3/8 copper

    I measured the pipe and its 9.53mm so 3/8. near .5mm small than the 10mm i have.

    Measured up th original pipe OD 9.52mm and new ( 10mm ) 9.99mm. 3/8 is 9.53mm. so the original must be imperial size.

    I chose to assume they weren't talking about gas, because messing around with gas as a DIYer would be monumentally stupid ;)
