You can buy floor plates to clip over the pipe to hide the hole

I’m planning on chopping the copper as it turns up to go through the floor and put the elbow there so then a bit of chrome goes straight up (well it’s got a set in it I have bent) and into the radiator. I’m going through the ceiling below so can leave the plasterboard down for a few days to check for leaks

Yes, brass is fine although I wouldn't be using chrome under the floor, and I would hydraulically pressure test everything under the floor or out of sight.

Thanks
The joins will be under the floor so I take it normal brass compression fittings are ok? So you just have to rough it up rather than clean the chrome off?
I have jetlube.

Compression fittings in chrome. you will need a flat file to rough the chrome up or emery cloth I would also use a jointing compound or a couple of wraps of ptfe tape over the olive.

Chrome pipe
Jan 12th, 2020, 8:38pm
 
Hello,

Plumbing in a towel rail I have bent the chrome pipe all ok but what is the best way of connecting? Internet seems to suggest a couple of ways but which is best? And if you do have to get it down to copper what’s the beat way of doing that scotchbrite doesn’t seem to touch it.

Thanks
