Hello, and welcome to this plumberparts.co.uk video. Today, we’re gonna have a look at another type of joining PVC pipes together.
This is the PVC push pipe. They are so simple to use. This size here is an inch and a half push fit connexion. Now, it’s easy. You get your inch and a half pipe, your plastic pipe, and you push it in. The way it causes a seal is, through here, just round here there is a rubber seal. Now, a slight bit of advice I’d give you for when putting this on, is if you have a small amount of Fairy Liquid nearby, or sometimes you can get silicone grease that works really, really well, but Fairy Liquid is obviously a lot more common in the home. And just rub that round the inside of that rubber o-ring there, and the pipe itself, and push it together, and it will go together a lot better. And never forget. Always chamfey a pipe with a file that will cause a taper before you insert the pipe. That’ll make it a lot easier for you. These aren’t as reliable as solvent weld pipes, but they do come apart
and they’re really, really quick to fit, which makes them a lot more popular with DIYs in the home. If you need anymore help, or you think we left anything out, as ever, do let us know. And always subscribe to our videos. Thanks ever so much, guys, and see you soon. Holler.
