I have an Aqualisa Aquastream (1997 - 2003 model) which I am trying to demount from the wall in order to replace it with the newer model.
The unit is fed by hot and cold water pipes entering from the rear. The plastic pipe connectors into which they locate are push fit, but there are no collets to push in to release their grip. Consequently, I can't get the unit free of the pipes.
Does anyone have any idea as to how I can accomplish this?
Thanks, Jondeau. The new unit doesn't have collet type fixtures either, so I think the idea is that the pipes should just pull off, but I suspect that they have become siezed on over the years. I've pulled away, but they won't budge. I think I'll have to disconnect the pipes further back at the first elbow joints and pull the lot through.
