Compare Compression Fittings With Push Connect®
With Push Connect® Plumbing Fittings there are no longer worries about under or over tightening any compression bolts as you would with a compression fitting. Our Push Connect® fittings do not use any type of compression bolts, just insert to connect, while at the same time prevents any leaking fluids from hot, cold, and high pressure pipes.
Compression fittings use a soft metal compression ring which is squeezed onto the pipe and into the fitting by the compression nut. This soft metal is compressed to the surface of both the tubing and fitting creating a seal. It is important that the right pressure is applied when tightening the compression bold so you don't under or over tighten the bolt.
Compression Compared to Push Connect® Plumbing Fittings
There are a few differences between compression and push-to-connect fittings that can make a big difference. Aside from saving time and money, compression fittings can easily leak if the fitting is not properly tightened.
Compression and Push Connect® Fittings Differences:
- Compression Fittings require compression tools and the bolt must be properly
tightened to avoid leaks. With Push Connect® Fittings there are no compression
bolts that need to be tightened, simply push the fitting on the pipe and
it creates a no leak seal that can be removed with no damages.
- Compression Fittings sometimes require re-tightening over time to stop
leaks. Push Connect® does not require any adjusting or re-tightening
to remain leak free.
push fitting technology creates a permanent seal in seconds, with NO experience,
special skills, or understanding of compression techniques. Simply push
to connect for a permanent seal and you are done.
