    Question Any Plumbers?

    My central heating system has 8mm Microbore piping. I want to change the pipe that comes through the flooring in the hallway as who ever fitted it made a pigs ear of the way it comes through the floor(all bent and not straight) and my OCD can no longer cope. I am about to replace the laminate flooring this week so it makes sense(to me anyway) to do something about the pipe work. So when I have the flooring up I want to cut back the 8mm pipe work, fit an 8mm to 15mm joint, then 15mm pipe up to new TRV's. Thing is the 8 to 15mm joint I have wont accept 15mm piping, the 15mm side is the same size as the 15mm copper pipe. Now looking at the screwfix catalouge you get Couplers or Reducers, so which will the 15mm pipe fit into, Couplers or reducers?
    Hope you understand what I mean.

    If i understand you right you need to get a 15mm x 8mm reducer which should then fit in a 15mm coupler which the 15mm pipe fits into

    Fyi the 'pushfit' plumbing kit is very good. No faffing about with soldering etc. Fast and safe.

    if it's what I think it is you would need a 15mm straight soldered connection in each one too. the 15mm end you have on the reducer is made to go into a 15mm rad valve

    would probably be easier to just buy a few of these

    im not a fan of pushfit, had a few blow off after installers not fitting properly

    Cheers, just found them on screwfix, was thinking they might be easier, or rather less soldering.
