    Hi. Thanks for the reply.
    So, how do I disassemble the pipe from the elbow? I may need to cut the pipe shorter. Can it be reassembled once I've cut the pipe shorter, or is it a one time only fitting.
    Thanks again

    Push the white ring into the fitting and pull the pipe out.
    Should be reusable if it’s not damaged.

    The elbow is pushfit onto the pipe. But the drain off is compression. Make sure the system is drained fully before removing.

    Good morning all. Thanks for the video. I've used Speedfit before, so I am familiar with their use. I wasn't sure if this Drayton push fit (if that is what it is) works under the same principle. I know that some of these manufacturers have different systems.
    Thanks again everyone. It means a lot that people are so willing to help and probably just as important, make no judgements. (Well, not publicly anyway. Hahaha)

    Just out of curiosity. If the ordered drain valves don't come today, is there something else I could buy from SF to cover the distance from the rad to the rad valve. Instead of the drain valve. I really need to get it done today. We've got no heating or hot water. I've seen items called tail valves and tail extensions. Would these do it? I know it means that they wouldn't have drain offs, but I'd have to deal with that in the future if necessary. I've taken some pictures to show dimensions.

    Thanks again
