    I would want a swept tee and 15mm pipes for that. Not sure poly do a swept tee. If you decide to go ahead make sure to use inserts.

    Its
    It's on 22mm because it has to feed another 6 radiators .My problem is whether I would have to cut the pipe for the new equal tee to have a secure fix on the pipe

    Not sure if I’m honest as I never use poly.

    Yes but you need to make sure your not over taxing the system adding x amount when the system is designed for a lower kw etc

    In terms of connecting bits of pipe together yes you can swap the elbow for a tee, however plumbing is not merely connecting bits of pipe together - at least it shouldn't be..
