A quick question:
I am about to replumb the entire bathroom and for ease of work
(for my benefit) am going to use SpeedFit stuff for the work.
However I have 4 pipes (cold,water, rad-in and rad-out) that
can I get away with just using the speed fit connectors or
do I have to use compression connectors for the initial connection
between copper and plastic pipe?
OK knock it off all of you, you have enough willy waving wars elsewhere
on the group.
Is there nowhere safe for a simple question?
I wish I had asked the question as follows:
I intend to use quick-installable-overpriced-but-easy-even-if-you-do-need-
extra-supports plastic plumbing in the bathroom and want to connect
it to copper......
--already bought the speedfit stuff on reccomendations of others
--so the arguing makes no difference to me.
PS: I also have a Dyson DC02 around 7 years old which works fine and dandy
The fittings are designed to go straight to copper so no problem, I
wouldn't worry too much about the sagging, it will make no difference,
mine sags all over the place *and* there's sideways pressure on the
joints where I've cabled the stuff, as long as you've pushed the pipe
fully home it will work fine.
What??? Support it at all points. In fact long length sould be fixed ona
wood baton, as old lead was. Long straight lengths are best in copper.
What nonsense! Clip and support the right away. If there is a big leak and
it is not supported correctly the insurance will not pay.
I would hate to buy your house in the future.
