FloPlast Flo-Fit Straight Couplers 22mm Pack of 5
These DO leak!!
I bought a selection of these - straight couplings and elbows by mistake (wanted speedfit) and every one leaked when connecting to copper - seemed OK when using plastic with the inserts. The copper pipe has to be perfectly round & clean - not always possible in confined spaces. Used Speedfit in the same places - no leaks at all.
Its not always practical to leave floors up & holes in walls to see if they do leak - fortunately I was able to and was glad I did when I discovered the leaks!! Unfortunately, I can't recommend these - spend the extra & get speedfit. All unopened ones returned!

Had to replace with john guest speedfits as leaked. Had the same with all floplast couplings.

I hope that potential purchasers of the Flo-Fit line will view some of these negative statements about this alternate to the JG line with a degree of healthy scepticism. The reality is as follows:
1. Floplast would not permit a faulty product to destroy their excellent reputation in the market.
2. Screwfix likewise.
3. The Flo-Fit product is WRAS approved and it is therefore inconceivable that this product is not operating correctly. It is exhaustively tested by WRAS, and the manufacturing company has a first class QC facility.
4. The JG line of fittings are superb, the only issue is one of size.
5. The Flo-Fit alternative is purely a slimmer version of similar technology.
