Plumbing-RepairPutting aside the differences between plastic and copper pipework, what happens when you want to connect them to each other?

Many solutions!

Ask five different plumbers as to what is the best method and you’re just as likely to come away with five different answers. So how do you decide which is the best method?

The best method!

Truth be told, no-one can really tell you which is the best method period, they can certainly give you their opinion or their experience with their favoured method but that is as far as it goes.
Which doesn’t really sound that helpful, does it?


When looking to get plumbing work done, you may be looking for the cheapest contractor, the smartest or something completely different, but one thing is for sure; your choice will also be influenced by how you feel about them, this is your personal judgement.

This means that whilst you may not know the contractor that well, you have trusted your judgement to pick the best one for your needs. Now you need to let that contractors judgement advise you to what they think is best, both in terms of your need and their professional experience of working with these connectors.

Whilst that may not actually be a practical answer, it will be down to your contractor to guarantee their work, so it stands to reason that they will use the best method for them, one that they know they can rely on, both in terms of ease of fitment and warranty on defective parts.
