    Is it OK to fit a 15mm copper pipe into a plastic T piece when the other 2 fittings are both 15mm plastic pipe? To clarify, this is the push fit/lock type plastic fittings.
    Cheers all.

    Yep, it is....
    So long as the pipe is nice and round.

    Yes, just make sure :-

    The pipe is round and clean
    Preferably cut with pipe cutters, if you use a hacksaw make sure you remove any sharp burrs that could “nick” the O ring
    Insert pipe fully into fitting
