Hi barkinglama

That's a Hep2o fitting. Two fittings together, a tap connector, and a coupler used to extend the pipe. It can be removed from the tap simply by loosening the hex nut. To remove the fitting from the pipe you need a HepKey, a little plastic tool that releases the grab ring in the fitting. These are available from a lot of plumbers merchants in all sizes for about 40 pence.
