    Hi guys. I’m installing a roll top Bath with heritage taps fitted on the back edge centrally. I’m wondering how you guys would usually pipe up the taps if the bath is only an inch or two off the wall? Would it just be flexi or hard piped? If hard piped how??? Cheers guys.

    You would normally do this in copper and cover in some nice chrome shrouds. Flexi's would look naff!

    The question was about pipework to the taps.

    I can't see the pipe work with these.
    Why on earth would you want to use flexible ???

    No. I think flexi's would be good enough.

    That's a little confusing. You asked for advice and then proceeded to poo-poo it. Any particular reason why?

    Err no I didn't ;)

    I saw they are to be mounted in the bath lip (bit diff if that's the actual bath (shape of lip)). Fixed pipework is def better and far from impossible if you use something like say JG tap connectors which will never be seen. :rolleyes:
