Kitchen Tap Replacement

Most modern taps have fixed flexible tails with 1/2" thread connections. The best solution is to remove the pushfit connectors and fit 2 15mm isolation valves to your hot and cold feeds, then connect your flexes onto these, I wouldn''t advise re using the copper tails, even if they were the same thread connections as the tap, they would need new orings or they could leak.
