It’s me again, back with another question!

I’ve just got a new kitchen tap from IKEA to replace our existing one. I thought this was going to be an easy swap out job but unfortunately I cannot use the old tap tail hoses as they appear to be 10mm diameter hoses whereas the ones with the new tap seem to be like 8mm.

Unfortunately the flexible tap tail connectors supplied have a 15mm male end rather than a female end. I cannot fit these currently as it needs to go into a 15mm isolation valve.

So my question is, what’s the easiest way to fit this with my current setup? Shown in the picture below is the new IKEA hose on the left with the wrong connector and my current on the right.

The new tap hose on the left is much thinner as you can see.

Easy to sort with: https://www.screwfix.com/p/p903sf-1-str ... mm-x/58294

Or an olive and the cap off the isolator and a small piece of copper pipe would suffice but if you don't have them then the link above will sort it

How would I use that straight tap connector? Would I need to remove the isolation valve? Thanks.

No you could use a piece of copper pipe from isolator and fit connector on top of that

Thank you, that makes sense. Would these also work? Would be a bit more straightforward for me. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 2773569839
