FloPlast Flo-Fit Straight Reducing Coupler 22 x 15mm Pack of 5
Quick, easy, re-usable
Was surprised to read poor reviews for these fitting. Have used a lot of them and found them to work perfectly.
Particularly handy is their re-usable nature when there's a need for a temporary/interim plumbing solution half way through a job; or even a change of plan later on!

Totally agree with the previous reviewer. The fittings can be frustratingly difficult to push fit.
I bought a pipe pressure tester because I didn't have the confidence in the fittings before I started plasterboarding the ceilings and walls.
I then found that one of the couplers leaked.
Having dismantled and refitted the pipe it still leaked. I swapped the internal o-ring parts, the inserts and cut the pipe a little shorter but still it leaked.
Fingers crossed for the many other fittings I have installed.

FloPlast Push Fit Fittings
I have recently installed a complete central heating system using FloPlast products.
I have never experienced so much trouble with the fittings in general. They proved to be extremely difficult to push together especially in tight spaces and practically impossible to dismount once connected. These fittings need to be provided with a dismounting tool.
I had a number of these fittings fail even when they had been pushed fully home.
I will certainly not use these fittings in the future. Very dissapointed
