"I bought a selection of these - straight couplings and elbows by mistake (wanted speedfit) and every one leaked when connecting to copper - seemed OK when using plastic with the inserts. The copper pipe has to be perfectly round & clean - not always possible in confined spaces. Used Speedfit in the same places - no leaks at all.
Its not always practical to leave floors up & holes in walls to see if they do leak - fortunately I was able to and was glad I did when I discovered the leaks!! Unfortunately, I can't recommend these - spend the extra & get speedfit. All unopened ones returned!"

Review 5 for FloPlast Flo-Fit Elbow 22mm Pack of 5
"These are a particular problem when interfacing with 22mm copper pipe. The O rings seem to not sit well on the pipe and were prone to weaping (yes - with inserts). This can spell disaster on a closed system - eg central heating, where you can watch your pressure slowly drop.
Used JG before with no problems, but floplast seems a poor substitute - see my reviews of the pipe coils."
