Which one to buy, 8mm bore or 12mm bore?
I'd like to swap the kitchen (monbloc) tap - intending to use compression flexible hoses, eg M12 15mm x 300mm x 8mm Pk2.
The new tap has solid pipes that come with it, but their bore is ~ 5.5mm at the tap fitting. Would these hoses be the right ones to use?
I'd like to add compression isolator valves, but will I need a bit of 15mm pipe between isolator valve and hose, or will the olive and nut on the hose just go as replacement for the olive and nut on one end of the isolator valve?
One look at the isolator valves showed that I would need a short bit of pipe as the gender of the connection needed to change.
So, job done.
