    Hi guys

    I'm in the process of replacing cloakroom toilet suite and unearthed these isolating valves. I was expecting a traditional compressing fitting. Any idea how to remove these?

    Chop them out (cut the pipe just below the valve)

    There the old pushfit type

    Thanks. I was guessing that would be the case but hoping not as the other pipe is in an awkward spot.
