Question

Polyplumb Installation


Had new heating, hot water system and pipe work installed using Polyplumb push fittings.

I should be concerned that the pipes and connectors look like they are under stress. see attached photo.

What does the manufacture specify?

Will they have a high chance of leaking over time?

thx all

Re: Polyplumb Installation


Where are you that there still using using what looks like Quest tubing?
Why is the plumbing not run through the studs and not face mounted?
Sure looks like a first time DIY install to me.
No way it should be run at an angle like that!!

Re: Polyplumb Installation


Your profile doesn't show location but the only Google returns I found for Polyplumb were from the UK. If so, the majority of contributors on this site may have no idea what the specs are for this product. I will assume it is approved for domestic supply in your jurisdiction.

None of which takes away from the observation that it looks like it was installed by a chorically-unemployed second cousin.

Re: Polyplumb Installation


I've never used polyplumb. We use sharkbite and other manufactures here. The plastic versions do leak when not done just perfect. Sharkbite is slightly more forgiving.

With that said, those elbows... As odd as they look, are probably OK.

I dunno anything about the sizing for that stuff. Some of it does look smaller then the rest, which seems off.

My next question is.... How on earth is the wall finishing going on?

Good luck.......

Cheers!

Re: Polyplumb Installation


The only way to finish that wall is to build out the studs more. But that is assuming that they are going to finish it.
