Push-on fittings are very quick to use, and even re-use, but you should read this section to ensure every connection is perfect.
Step 1 - Prepare the connection
Pipe colour is used for identification only, Red and Blue have identical properties. Black is also available and is UV stabilised.
Cut the pipe square ensuring it is free of score marks.
Do not insert fingers into the fitting as the stainless steel teeth may cause injury.
Step 2 - Assemble the connection
For pipe used with HOT water (usually red) you need to use a Pipe Support Insert. Cold water pipes do not require the insert.
The cover is placed on the pipe prior to joining. After pipe is in the fitting the red clip in pushed into the gap, and the snap fitting cover makes a tidy and 100% secure fitting.
Disconnecting standard push-on fittings
With the collet held in this position the pipe can be removed. The fitting can then be re-used.
