"DO believe the hype. I was SOOO sceptical of these but after my plumber let me down with the final runs to do in a bathroom refit I decided to take matters into my own hands. Yes, they're more expensive than solder and flux joints but they WORK and work first time too. They push onto standard copper pipe (just make sure it's nice and clean with a bit of emery paper first) and – bosh – they're solid. Once pushed on you CAN'T get them off (without the special tool available separately). It's all a bit magic. Push in a second pipe and you're done. No soldering/glueing – it's just watertight instantly. AND you can twist each joint so you can fix up and tweak later. Will definitely be using them again."
"Have used these many times both with copper & plastic pipe. Never had the slightest leak yet......Should not have said that!!!! I was initially concerned about using push fit fittings but not anymore... simple , reliable & fast. Will never use soldered joints again."
"This was my first time using copper push-fits as I have been old school and prefer soldering. However, this time due to very tight space and no movement of pipe allowed I decide to use push-fit and was really impressed with them so will definately use again!"
"Looks good easy to use, works well.price was o/k. Only just fitted push fitt elbows copper to plastic,probably not recommended but working well, and very easy to use ,remembered to use inserts. Not leaking yet,but will have to keep my eye on it for a while."
"Bought these elbows as I needed to get some pipe work done in less than an hour . Worked a treat , and the pipe could turn in the fitting without effecting it's seal. Great product will be using again even though I little pricey ."
"I recently replaced all severn of my old radiators, whilst doing so I came across these Cuprofit copper push on fittings(elbows and straights) they are absolutely brilliant just push on and go they can be moved around once coupled and taken off again with a special tool if required, severn radiators and not one leak, no soldering no bulky compression joints. A giant step forward"
"I have used these on both central heating and my cold water supply in places where plastic push-fit or soldering would have been almost impossible. I trust them completely - never had one leak or problem. (By the way, to help your pipe measurements, the pipe slots 13mm into the joint).
Pros - they are slim and can be fitted in tight places; they are removable with the right tool; they allow the joint to twist which is a godsend; they are unbelievably easy to fit, look quite nice and are very strong and reliable.
Cons - more expensive than end feed or solder ring joints, and you have to make sure they are pushed on square. It seems to me that if you pushed them on at a bad angle too hard you could damage the rubber or teeth, but you'd have to be pretty incompetent to do it."
"After a couple of plumbing nightmares with compression fittings I decided to give these a go. I must just say they are brilliant and do not leak at all even if the pipe work is misaligned slightly. What a discovery!!! I will only ever use these in the future."
"I've only ever used push on fittings on plastic pipe before but I had to move some central heating pipes to accommodate a new radiator and they are copper. Very pleased with the fittings, more expensive than the solder type but as I don't have soldering equipment these push on fittings made the job very easy."
"I have done bits and bobs of plumbing over the years and I have done solder and compound. But these pushfits are the dogs b's. Cant rate them enough. Great for tight spots when you don't want to set fire to the room with a blow torch. Done most of my bathroom with them, just got to finish off fitting the new radiator and am done and up to now everything is looking good."
"these really are so easy to use, and reuse. however the best thing is if you only have a short run of pipe to your rad/tap by using this type of fitting it remains flexable so if you have to remove the rad, once drained and undone you can simply rotate the valve from the rad."
