Plumbing ....... Grrrrrr

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)
Small Stilsons
Mini Stilsons
Mole grips
Large adjustable spanner
Small adjustable spanner
Two screwdrivers
Basin spanner
Pipe cutter
Stanley knife
Emery cloth
Boss white
Silicone sealant

Working on an Alfa is a piece of cake
