Hi

Any suggestions for a plumber's merchant for a pipe with the best possible nickel plating? I have used either or both toolstation and screwfix and I am looking for a better quality finish.

Thank you.
Och Aye.

As you said, you want to go to a plumbers merchant, one local to you, i find them to be very helpful, but always visit two, and compare results.
As for screwfix and tool station, they are just shelf holding facilities.

1. I think you'll find nickel plated tube / pipe difficult to get. Its normally plain copper finish, chromed or plastic coated.
2. If you want chrome plated, I'd try either Yorkshire or Wednesbury. I think you can get Wednesbury from Screwfix.

Thank you. Yes, Wednesbury is sold by both screwfix and toolstation. And I can find Yorkshire "tube" at an eye watering price but there is a local shop is local ... I will see :-)
