" I had to join two different diameters of pipe in a place that had insufficient space or access for conventional joints. Without this connector I would have had to rip up an entire wooden floor, at huge cost. Make sure you do the clips up tightly to get it fully leak-proof. It is expensive for a joint, but in some circumstances it is a tiny fraction of the cost of the alternative courses of action. "

" With limited space and no option in mating solvent weld and push fit pipe, this flexi fit union was ideal, fitted in a couple of mins. Just the job for a quick fix or miss matched pipework "

" 40 mm pipe broken at 90 deg. bend. The bend was inserted partly in the wall with no access the other side. This union went over top of the bend and over the pipe too with adjustable clamps making both joints watertight. A LIFESAVER "

Useful in a pinch.

" I can't give an opinion as to long-term reliability, but this coupling was just the job in an extremely tight situation. The gap available was just big enough for the waste pipe, AND the little bit of flexibility was very handy.
Obviously this is a bit expensive to routinely use instead of a standard solvent or compression fitting, but it does seem to do the job.
I will probably keep one in the van for emergencies.

Brilliant!

" I had a problem similar to those which others describe here. Installing a new kitchen sink, the old pipe completely in the wrong position and glued. I managed to cut off the old pipe with only about a 1" stub protruding from the wall. It was a little awkward to reach but I soon succeeded in attaching the connector to a flexi pipe and Bingo! Job done in about half an hour and no leaks! Brilliant buy even at the price, if you have a similar problem, don't hesitate, just get one! Incidentally, the flexible pipe I purchased at the same time (McAlpine FLEXCON2 40mm Flexible Connector) was also a brilliant purchase. "

" Looking at it you wouldn't think it would go down as much as it does without kinking. But it did and has proven leak free to date.
Can't comment on the durability or life as only been fitted a month or 2. "

Pipe nightmare fixed!
13 Apr 2012
By
, Dunfermline
" I was trying to replace a waste pipe under a sink, but the old one was lead, and is joined in to an old cast iron pipe in an awkward place. I cut the old pipe off, leaving a 2" stub, and the screwfix coupling fitted perfectly, allowing me to continue with 40mm plastic waste pipe. It took less than a minute to fit, and has performed perfectly. The coupling may seem a little expensive, for what it is, but it beats calling a plumber any day! "

BRIDGING A GAP
20 Jan 2013
By
, London
" Firstly, the item I received was Grey and not Black as shown in the catalogue. I used this coupling to connect a 42mm copper stub (connected to a cast iron stack) to a new 40mm polypipe sink waste. The 'services void' was very crowded (gas main, water main, two cast iron stacks and connections to adjacent flats). I would have preferred to have fitted straight to the boss however the fitting I had purchased for the job didn't fit so as a fallback I used the existing fitting with a stub of the original copper waste to connect to the new sink waste. The flexible coupling is ideal in situations of last resort. "

gets you out of trouble
23 Jul 2012
By
, North London
" Well, I didn't like the idea of using what seemed like a piece of rubber hose to complete the job, but was left with little choice when I had to join some new inch and a half PVC waste to an old lead waste. The old pipe had to remain in place as it was connected via a well rusted threaded fitting to a virtually inaccessible cast soil pipe in a flat with occupants using it upstairs. The O/D of the lead was about 44mm, so could not use a compression fitting, but these handy couplings come in a variety of sizes, and the 38-45mm one was just the job. The socket end of a 40mm solvent fitting went straight into the other end nicely. The rubber is nice and firm, but soft enough to compress nicely onto the pipes with the clips. It's solid rubber, not reinforced with fabric like a vehicle cooling system hose. Whilst this was not intended to last forever, I guess it would outlive the rest of the original soil system! -After all, we use rubber couplings to permanently join PVC soil pipe to Iron with no problems. My only gripe is the cost of the thing, but could certainly be worth it if it gets you out of trouble like it did for me. "
