    This (from screwfix) isolating elbow seems ideal for me. But other side from the 15mm compression is this 1/2” fitting.

    I want to come off a cistern inlet to it if someone could advise. A flexi might be helpful coming off the cistern inlet (maybe not essential) however plastic pipe going to this fitting probably would be good.

    Many thx

    That's not an isolating elbow, rather it's a bent tap connector ISO, there is a subtle difference as you have found. It';s for a drect connection to a tap/fill valve inlet

    I'd say you probably want one of these -

    You'll get them in toolstation. You'll find it easier to fit to.

    Sound, thanks.
    I hadn’t seen one anywhere with both 15mm connections
