I need to cut a tee in to this pipe, I usually use polypipe when using plastic, though this appears to be floplast. Any ideas?

As before, different fittings are ok but use Floplast inserts.

Not so sure the above grey pipe is poly either. It doesn't have the k marks on for cutting and insertion depths.

Maybe putting compression on to the floplast now then converting to poly. So just a connection to the floplast with a nut and olive and a liner.

I bought some floplast liners and a length of pipe. The liners seem abit slack in the pipe. They have changed floplast 15mm pipe recently. At least the markings have changed on it. So not sure how the liners will feel when I cut in to the pipe. If I was concerned about the liners being abit slack. Would a compression tee be an option to cut in to get me to copper/polypipe. Thanks.

Thanks the reason I thought was if the liners were a tad slack. The copper olive will still bite up just grab the pipe to the liner more? Do you agree with my idea?
