    Default Radiators/towel rails

    Hi all
    I know this is a tiling forum but does anyone know if I can use flexible copper pipe to join a towel radiator to the existing valves?

    I personally like connecting them with chrome plated copper.

    I form the pipe to the right shape so that there are no joints above the floorboards. When you need 2 or more radii in the same length of pipe it can get tricky but practice gets you there
