"I have delayed using pushfit fittings, preferring to use soldered fittings, however for my latest job I thought it was time to experiment, after all, more and more people are recommending them, and even the doubters seemed to put forward somewhat flimsy reasons. My experience was that there are indeed quicker to use, sealed first time every time, and do what it says on the tin. The doubters are right in that you do need to be a bit more careful in the way of providing support, and electrical continuity. They are a little more expensive too, but are so much quicker. Confined spaces? No problem! I will be using them again."
