    HI!
    i am a new member and only a DIY'er
    i have had to replace a radiator with a smaller one
    i need to extend the outlet of the radiator by 6" using
    15mm copper pipe...what fitting do i use to connect
    the pipe to the system valve (which has the original radiator fitting connected )
    regards

    best way would be drain down and either adjust the pipework or install a new valve

    eg

    https://www.screwfix.com/p/compression-adapting-male-coupler-15mm-x/67110#_=p

    and use a piece of 15mm chrome pipe between the rad and valve

    if you dont want to drain down

    and a piece of 15mm chrome
