How Does Push Fit Plumbing Work?

Answer

Push fit plumbing is done by firmly securing the pipe in the fitting to connect tubes or pipes. The twist lock in the fitting is then unfastened, the collar pushed in, while the pipe and fitting are pulled apart. Push fit fittings have an 'o' ring inside for sealing around the pipe. The devices, which are used for joining pipes as well as regulating liquid flow, are available in plastic, copper, and chrome finishes.
