    Hello,

    Please forgive my ignorance but I was hoping someone could let me know what I need to cap these two pipes so I can disconnect my tap and toilet from the water supply... the toilet one has a screw on it - is that for isolating the connection?

    Many thanks!

    Turn the screwed one to quarter to three . In otherwords horizontal . The other pic needs a 15mm cap but with a fibre washer in .

    Personally I would isolate the water and use a 15mm insert and pushfit cap after the isolation valve on the toilet and remove the coupler from the bottom union on the tap connection and use a 15mm compression cap

    And make sure the insert is inside the pipe for the tap

    Surely just a 15mm compression stop end?

    Yep either / or really, hes using it again so a cap means he doesnt disturb the fitting , can do it either way
