Have I made a cock up? I have used copper inserts with speedfit piping and compression fittings, these are not the plastic ones recommended on the JG website. Am I in for trouble with leaks?

When you say that you have used copper inserts, do you mean inserts which fit inside the plastic pipe, or copper olives which fit around the pipe but inside the compression joints? cos you need to use both.

Normal copression fitting with olives and copper inserts. The JG website says to use their own plastic inserts, the ones without o rings for compression fittings.

Why would you need coppers inserts?? Surely you mean inserts for plastic pipes?

why has Johnathan Guest changed the inserts to ones without o-rings?

dont tell me that they are only for use with compression fittings and the o-ring versions for the pushfit fittings :eek:

Easier to get the olive over the cheapy insert as opposed to the superseal.
Whose are the copper inserts?

The trick
is (with the oring type) is to put the olive on the pipe (in the actual position for tightening) then put the insert in the pipe.

BTW - dont forget to put the nut on the pipe first ;)


see the apprentice knows something :D
