8mm microbore can I T-off?

Postby wally30 » Mon Dec 03, 2007 11:27 am

I need to move an existing rad and fit an additional rad. The construction of the flat and the location of the manifolds - under a wall and toilet pan - make a new run close to impossible even if there is a spare pair of points - which I have still to check. I know that I shouldn't, but in this situation can I T-off the nearest pair of pipes? Even if the additional rad is slow to heat up it will not matter that much.

Simply Build It

They do make 8mm equal tee’s, but they do need to be order.

I think you need to look for another way to do this and there will be problems.

The main reason I can think of is 8mm is a pain to work with, and the flow rates are low.

I don’t see the point of “slowâ€
