    Hi, I've got some speedfix joints that don't look very straight, I'm wondering whether that might put too much pressure on the fittings , maybe I need to straighten them out somehow ?
    Thanks Screenshot_20210424-122105_Photos.jpg

    Looks awful, but it doesn't have to be straight

    Plastic will always have some flex on it but it should be installed straight and not at different angles as in your pic.

    Chances are it will be fine though.

    This is the sort of situation where if you 'fix' it you'll end up causing a problem that likely otherwise wouldn't have occurred. Or is that just *my* luck? ;)
