    Default Bathroom Vanity T section sold separately ?

    Does anyone know if you can buy the T section (joining the hot and cold taps and the spout) separarately ?
    I have been told that I need to buy another entire tap set to get the T section.
    Anyone know if this is true or not, and if not, where I could buy the T section ?

    Have a feeling OP means the push in type used on hand basins that come with a tap set.

    He's probably cut it too short.
    Love it when DIYERS pin the blame on plumbers for their own shoddy work

    Or he has tried to undo the tap top and bent the T breech beyond repair.

    The T breech is available (at a cost) but you will need to stipulate what type

    i.e O ring type or the old style nut and cone type.

    No I haven’t cut it too short ! I have a good set of taps from Reece, ( Posh Brand) and have taken them from two old vanities that I have had replaced. The taps had “bound” on the old vanities and in Removing them, the “T”s got bent, thereby changing their length, and also making sealing them with the olives at either end, a little bit harder. I am told by my plumber (fantastic tradie) that the Ts aren’t sold separately, and I wanted to check if anyone had any different information or experience. $120 for a tap set x 2, just to get the Ts, seems an expensive option.

    Thanks Phild01, this was what I was after. My plumber used one of the old ones that was bent verry slightly, and cleverly made another out of crimped copper to replace the other one. still seems like an expensive exercise, and in this day of available parts even from China, it seems funny that it isnt freely available at good plumbing outlets !

    Droog.... fantastic bit of detective work.. and reasonably priced at the big green shed.
    I will stick this under my plumbers nose first thing tomorrow.
    I wonder how many plumbing shops will tell you that you can’t buy this separately or tell you that B.......s have it ?
    Ill buy two tomorrow just to have them in my plumbing box !
    Thanks Heaps. !!!!!!!
