That sounds like an attempt to bait, so consider me baited.As i said.....seems we both ended up right. And you are/were smart enough to see where my low pressure/high pressurre coments were going.
It has nothing to do with being smart or stupid, and we didn't agree, so I don't see how we ended up both being right.
I don't know where your comments were "going", and I don't know why they haven't arrived yet. If you were biding your time before giving the as yet unknown pearl of wisdom, then that approach seems utterly devoid of point.
The OP said at the outset that his pressure was low, and then defined the amount of head in relative but accurate terms, and my comments related to that. You view 1.5 bar is being low, but my view is that it isn't.
I'm glad you think so. However, I would never rely on the pressure remaining low (which his is, but 1.5 bar isn't), because the installation might later be upgraded and thus expose problems that might be created now in a poorly-sealed joint.Yes, at the pressure the OP has he will/should have little problems sealing joints.
...which is exactly why I have a box of Philmac fittings. However, there's rarely a need to use them because there's nearly always a better way of making a joint.And on a final note....philmac do a universal coupler Softus......designed to marry many different materials. Lead included.
