Hi All,

Looking for some quick advise.
I am planning to change all the radiators out of the house.
Currently have 10mm microbore everywhere go to radiator valves.

Since I am changing the radiators I thought it would be a good idea to change to TRV valves too.

Any suggestions on what valves to use as the last thing I want the plumber to be doing is soldering on reducers or putting on coupler etc.

I seem to be strugging to get TRV valves that are 10mm and then I assume 15mm (1/2 inch) to fit onto the radiator.
Not looking for anything fancy, just goot quality white will be fine

Thanks in advance.

Atm screwfix have an offer on with free valves for every radiator you buy, they are 15mm but you can buy 15-10mm reducing sets which fit in the 15mm nut. Once there in you won't be able to see them and only take a minute to fit, will work out cheaper than buying rads and valves separate..
These.....

Personally I don't'bother with those reducing sets they always leak eventually when they get the smallest of knocks!

I usually just hacksaw the pipe directly under the old TRV and solder on a 15/10mm reducer then fit that straight into the 15mm valve. It's quicker and easier then trying to make it work the other way :wink:
