I'm new to push fit plastic, so please excuse my ignorance...
I have just replaced our old faulty shower with a fancy new one. The old one
was all copper feed straight into the shower unit, where as the new one has
a plastic push in fitting inside it, with a short plastic pipe tail. I've
used the short bit of plastic pipe, with an internal sleeve at each end -
taking it into a normal compression fitting where it meets the copper.
I seem to have got away with it, as there have been no leaks so far, but is
this an acceptable/reliable method?
Could I take copper all the way into the unit, rather than making use of the
plastic tail, utilising the push fit on the end of the copper?
