    Are you talking about the flush pipe from cistern to toilet ? Maybe ?

    Your post is way to vague for any detailed advice. More info and some photos would help enormously :)

    It's the threaded pipe that allows water into the system. 15mm I think

    do you mean there is not enough space to fit an elbow onto the 1/2 inch bsp thread of the inlet valve because the cabinet is too close ? is that your problem ?

    don't think that will bend to a tight enough radius to fit in that small space kiab. a female elbow would . 1/2 inch bsp female to 15 mm compression. screwfix code 3231G. PTFE tape will be needed to seal between the threads.

    They all seem too big to fit the gap. I need a 90 bend that goes straight down instead of having to much of a radius on it. Maybe a bent flexi hose connector if one exist So?

    I don't have a B&Q angled hose I link to here to measure,but it's preety compact.

    Thanks but radius on this will be around 50-60mm

    the female elbow is the best bet .

    Thanks. Looks bigger than 30mm but I could go and measure it

    Is there another vanity to the left of the W.C vanity?
    If so it could be piped through that.

    the female elbow takes much less space than other fittings as
    the thread of valve goes into the female thread around 15 mm .

    IMG_3732.JPG I thought a had a bent tap connector in my plumbing box and yes I did

    As you can see from the pic, once it's seated on the threaded tail it is pretty much spot on 30mm

    Could maybe trim a bit of the threaded tail off to give a few more mm or pack some extra washers on inside of cistern to again shorten tail (assuming room inside for inlet valve)
