Hiding Tap Hose Behind Pedestal Basin With Bent Connector

Postby bathroomg » Sat Apr 21, 2018 3:43 pm

Hi all, it's my first post here, so here goes. I've got an old fashioned armitage shanks basin in my bathroom which has flexi hoses supplying the taps. The feeds and waste pipe all come up through the floor and are mostly hidden by the pedestal, however the flexi hose is visible and bothers me. apparently the taps are bath taps, so a 22mm thread.

I thought a right-angled connector would help to route it better, but the one I got, a "22MM X 3/4" COMPRESSION BENT TAP CONNECTOR", doesn't work. It connects fine at the the tap end, but I the thread is slightly bigger at the other end, so I can't connect the flexihose to it.

I can't seem to find one which has the same sized thread at both ends. Am I missing something, is there another solution to this rather minor problem?
