    That one is a compression you tight the nut with a spanner and that compresses the olive to grip the pipes.

    They don't recommend using pushfits on the shower outlet (plastic part).
    Will state that in the MI's.

    Don't over tighten the compression onto the plastic shower inlet you'll break it.
    Best to fit the nut and olive to the shower before fitting shower.
