Conex Cuprofit Isolating Valve 15mm
Purchased this for my husband who is disabled with arthritis and would now struggle to fit compression or soldered joints. He managed to do the job in no time at all and without causing him any pain. He is so impressed; he wants to know if Screwfix can supply him with some push fit knees and elbows that could be changed as fast!

Well made reliable fittings, probably the best on the market, not cheap but real quality.

I am consistently impressed by these copper push-fit fittings. They really lower the bar to entry for a DIYer and are so much easier to use than compression or soldered fittings, especially where space is tight. I got this valve into a ridiculously tight space where replacing the pipe to get more length to work with would have meant tearing out a kitchen wall. Heat was not an option and there was absolutely no chance of getting spanners in there for compression. I have had zero failures to date, not a single drip, from any of these copper push fit fittings I've put in.
My tip - in case of emergency while working on your plumbing, always keep a push-fit end stop in your pocket, preferably a plastic one so it's easy to remove again.
They can be a touch expensive but always far cheaper than a plumber.

These are great fittings, although the price has gone up alot and i would not recomend them for plastic pipe. To remove the fittings you need a tool and this is fine on copper but when removing plastic i have found that the pipe insert gets stuck and cannot be removed without damaging the valve
