    I am putting a shower in, but cant fathom what connector I need to use to get the mains water supply connected to the valve.

    The water coming into the valve will be via 15mm pipes, but the opening at the moment is bigger than that so I need a reducer or something for this I think. Screenshot_20190525-175523_Gallery.jpg

    I'm aiming to connect using speed fit fittings

    (See attached image)

    Can you advise?

    Looking at it probably this then adapt from 15mm copper to your speed fit . Kop

    Your flow rate from the shower will be reduced with the PF 15mm supplies.
