Nothing quite fits...
I'm replacing all the fittings in the bathroom
The new pillar tap on the basin is about a 1/4" shorter than the previous one.... so I had to cut the feed pipes short and then fit a longer pipe to connect to the tap tails
The I fitted the basin waste... guess what........ it's about 1/4" longer than the previous one so I've had to cut a chunk off the wasts pipe to get it to fit....
Is it too much to ask that dimensions on these things are standardised so that fittings are interchangeable without having to alter the feed and waste pipes
Tomorrow I'll be doing the bath
... that is something I'm really looking forward to
......and then there's the tools that you need...
Large Stilsons (haven't used these ....... yet)
Large adjustable spanner
Small adjustable spanner
Working on an Alfa is a piece of cake
