Frequently Asked Questions

When are pp compression fittings the best choice?

PP compression fittings are an excellent choice in the following scenarios:
- Non-critical pplications, such as irrigation systems, water supply lines, and drainage systems.
- Temporary or removable connections. They can be easily assembled and disassembled without damaging the pipes or fittings, making them suitable for situations where you may need to modify or reconfigure your piping system in the future.

What preparation is needed for installing PP compression fittings?

- Cutting the pipe: Measure and mark the pipe at the desired length using a suitable pipe cutter. Ensure that the cut is clean and square to ensure a proper fit into the compression fitting.
- Deburring and chamfering: After cutting the pipe, use a deburring tool to remove sharp edges and a chamfering tool to create a beveled or chamfered end. These processes are essential for improving safety, preventing injury, and ensuring proper fit and functionality of pipe connections.
- Check for leaks: After tightening the compression nut, visually inspect the joint for any signs of leakage. Monitor the connection for a period of time to ensure there are no leaks or drips.

When are PP compression fittings not the right choice?

While PP compression fittings have many advantages, there are certain situations where they may not be the best choice. PP compression fittings may not be the best choice for critical applications where failure could result in significant consequences, such as in industrial process lines, gas pipelines, or certain plumbing systems. In these cases, fittings with higher reliability, such as welded, soldered, or flanged connections, are typically used to ensure a more secure and durable joint. When considering the use of PP compression fittings, it's crucial to assess the specific requirements of your project, including pressure, temperature, compatibility, and safety considerations.

Which features are important for PP compression fittings?

- Compression o-ring: The compression o-ring is a crucial component of PP compression fittings. It is responsible for creating a tight and leak-free connection. It should provide a secure grip on the pipe when tightened.
- Sealing gasket: A sealing gasket is often integrated into PP compression fittings to ensure a watertight seal. The gasket should provide reliable sealing under pressure and be resistant to degradation from chemicals or UV exposure.
- Threaded nut: The threaded nut is used to tighten and secure the compression fitting onto the pipe. It should be easy to grip and turn, allowing for proper installation without the need for excessive force or specialised tools.
- Ease of installation: Jason compression fittings are known for their ease of installation. Their user-friendly design allows for simple and efficient installation without the need for specialised tools.

What are the key advantages of compression fittings?

1. Ease of installation: Compression fittings are easy to install and do not require specialised tools or equipment.
2. Versatility: Compression fittings are compatible with a wide range of pipe materials, including copper, PVC, PEX, and polypropylene
3. Leak-free connections: When installed correctly, compression fittings provide reliable and leak-free connections. The compression nut creates a tight seal between the pipe and the fitting, preventing water or gas leaks.
4. Disassembly and reusability: Compression fittings can be easily disassembled and reassembled without damaging the fitting or the pipe.

Can I glue PE pipes and fittings?

It is important to note that gluing PE pipes and fittings is not a common practice and is generally not recommended. PE pipes and fittings are made from a thermoplastic material that does not bond well with most adhesives or glues. Glued joints may not provide the same level of strength and integrity as compression joints.
