Wife's sister and their mum arriving on monday afternoon for a few days.
Decided to test a previously unused rad in the bedroom I am decorating for
Rad requires bleeding and takes too long.
So I check the weater pressure and its near zero. I start to refill when
22mm speedfit pipe unhinges itself from the brass stop valve. The valve
more than the 3ft from the combi.
Not too much water spilt as I was quickly into valve shutting mode.
So I refit with a new olive.
I checked the speedfit site and I now realise that I had forgotten the pipe
insert during the
I checked wickes web site and they sell speedfit but don't seem to have
speedfit pipe inserts.
They have other pipe inserts..so are all/most pipe inserts generically
Assuming that refitting the speedfit with pipe inserts will fix the problem
that is 'visible to me' Anything else I need to know?
PS I turned off the water to the rads so we have hot water.
