    Hi
    I have a 10mm copper Pipe coming out of the wall and to the bottom of a Toilet via a 15mm tap connector .
    What I am wanting to do is fit a flexi and a isolator , mainly to take some stress off the bottom of the 15mm plasting thread of the WC bottom feed connector ,maybe this is a easy answer but for the life of me I can't seem to get the connectors to do the job , I have a new 15mm flexi (300mm) and a 15mm isolator , the tap connector is fine ,but how do I connect the 15mm compression fitting to the 10mm copper pipe ,( without having a great big extension coming out of the wall ! .

    I thought the answer would of been just a 10x15mm flexi hose would do the job , but I don't seem to be able to find one ! .

    cheers
    Spike

    As I said it will look ugly but don`t know of 10mm to tap connecter flexi, why do think the need to remove stress from the cistern inlet valve, is it really lopsided or something?

    Yes exactly ,there is ways to do it ,but I don't want a chunk of brass/copper sticking out of the wall , as I had mentioned earlier do they not do a 10x15mm slexy

    You can cut the rubber washer if you go too tight and there are that type of isolator with a smooth face for the rubber washer now.
