Emergency Push Fit Fitting
Martin Smith believes the best type of emergency push fit an emergency plumber will carry on his van is the Emergency Speedfit Fittings, this is due to the amount of work and the evolution of the fitting from plenty of testing. John Guest Speedfit fitting is a well known fitting amongst plumbers and also a trusted company my NAZA, a company that is always looking into the future.
What are the fitting Speedfit good for
The fitting’s made by John Guest are great for pushing on pipe and have a quality fitting quicker than any other fitting, but at a high standard also. It is always great to carry John Guest Speedfit fitting as they are very reliable and also carry a good name knowing the customers are going to be happy. The emergency Speedfit fittings are well known for lowering the risk of the customer calling you back if the fitting has not succeeded in sealing and has started to leak as long as the fitting has been fitted correctly.
An example to fitting a Speedfit incorrectly would be fitting them within a meter of the boiler pipework. Not pushing the pipe far enough onto the pipe (TIP: Always mark the pipe inserting into the pipe).
However like any fitting you may find that the seal has failed in the manufactures moulding process however this is rare but is always a good idea to check, but to be honest you can find this with any fitting out there.
