Simply Build It

You should be able to do this. The simplest way would be to route the pipes back to the old location and connect them there, however this would leave you with longer pipe runs and hence a less efficient set up. It may be better to reroute the pipes away from the old location entirely.

If someone is doing the work for you they should be able to advise, and will be able to see if there is likely to be any problems.
