    Hello ,

    Bought a ex display tap and sink the other day and I was wondering what Flexi pipe I need here. I want a compression fitting the other end but what goes at this end.

    The end with the o-ring is threaded and it copper pipe looks like it pressed into the casting of the tap.


    If anyone could send me a link that would be great.

    Many Thanks

    Why does that tap look strange? Aren’t English taps normally female inside the tap and require 12mm male flexi’s? Or am I missing something? Where did you get it from?

    Homebase on an Ideal standard Sink as an ex display. Yes I thought there should be female holes and not males. I can't find a Flexi to fit..

    Does it have an ideal stamp and do the inserts unscrew?

    Can the braided hose come off the tails leaving the Brass fittings in the tap guy's ?

    They look pressed in to me as they look serrated

    Never seen it before. I would try and take them out. But that’s just me. Or call Ideal standard tech department.

    i would say they have to come out

    your not going to find anything thats going to be easy

    the brass will either be m10 or m12 (normally m10)

    Looks like someone has pulled off the braided hoses.
    The inserts will unscrew out and should be 1/4 (8mm)

    What does the tap look like on the top?

    My guess is that's an 'easyfix' tap, made to be able to fit from above (sort of) there's a base part that it goes into, the tails attach to the base, not the tap.
