Simply Build It

Hi ajf24,

Its not hard to fit your own radiators if you've got a few basic tools and a bit of know how. I've just finished moving a few radiators around in my house and it was really quite easy.

I used speedfit/push fit connectors and plastic ploy pipe, both of which are fine for C/H. Theres a few handy hints on this site and you can buy all the fittings through the plumbing section in the toolstore.
Hope this helps!
