Conex Cuprofit Equal Tee 15mm
Leaked like a sieve!
Bought 2 to add in a Phosphate doser to my boiler hot water supply.
Cut into a straight run of mains cold water 15mm pipe, cleaned pipe, de-burred ends, fitted tees and connected everything up. All pipes were pushed in as far as possible to tees, pipes were straight, well supported and no strain on them.
The tees leaked at all 3 pipes when water turned on!
I have used these fittings previously with no problems so presume it was a manufacturing fault, undersized o rings or the like. They were both sealed in bags so hadn't been used and returned.
Had to rush back at 5 to 8 just before closing and buy 2 compression tees instead.
Can't trust these now, will use solder or compression fittings in future.

so simple to use
Excellent piece of kit. Used to add tee into pipes close to cupboards without resorting to blow torch. Looks so much better than the white plastic ones.

I had a tricky pipe to cut into and tap off a new section, there was no way i could use a blow torch or spanner in the confined space, these push fit were so simple.. cut the pipe, clean the ends, push it on... thats it. No mess, no leaks, no hassle... saved half a day of re-plumbing the pipe work. If only my other plumbing was as good...

Wasn't sure about these but had a very small gap between a wall and a joist to re-plumb so thought i'd give them a go. O ring clasps around the pipe, as long as the pipe is clean and round you will have no leaks.
Can't comment on long time reliability as only just fitted them.
