Radiator tail to valve elbow

Post by teasnob » Thu Dec 27, 2018 1:28 pm

I am replacing a small, single radiator with a much taller one. The new radiator has vertical connections. I don't want to have the valves replaced if I don't have to, so I need to turn 90 degrees and connect to the radiator. It's compression fitting but the only elbow I can find seem to have nuts at both ends. What's the best way to do this?

Perhaps do it as if you are fitting a towel rail,

look at how to connect the radiator to the pipework, maybe use telescopic extenders.
