    Hi new to this forum I'm a plasterer by trade so go easy on me lol...
    In the middle of refurbing our bathroom and ive bought a chrome towel rad...existing pipe centers are 670mm . new rad pipe centers are 555mm... would i be best to bend pipes to fit new rad or fit elbows and extra 15mm to bring centers in. Any advice much appreciated thanks.

    P.s I've already tiled so no chance of moving pipes under floor

    I also think it would have been too short for bending two 90 bends. But as mentioned from @kris@kris its much better way of lifting floor boards and alter the pipes it will look much more neat

    I'm guessing concrete floor and he's tiled it so no chance

    Maybe not . he hasn't even mentioned it yet... so very possible to lift the floor . especially when doing a refurb as mentioned earlier.

    I'd still lift few tiles to make it right, if it's were me. But everybody has a different way of solving issues. I mean it doesn't look as bad with those sets but should be done as you mentioned in chrome copper

    No chance of lifting tiles as they are black quartz starlite and cost me £78 per square meter lol... ill do chrome sets hopefully wont look too bad
