JG Speedfit BPEX Barrier Coil Pipe 50mx15mm
Use straight pipe
I used this product installing a new central heating system in my house. The coiled pipe is very difficult to straighten when installing through joists and virtually imposable to keep straight installing parallel to the joists. This also puts lots of pressure on joints used which will no doubt leak. I have now removed this product and installed straight length plastic pipe. Much easier to install and a few more joints but a better installation. Will not comment on reliability as I have not filled the system yet.

Speedfit pipe & fittings
Having used other brands of barrier pipe, I come back to speedfit.
It is easy to use and forms bends without wanting to spring back at you.
The lockable fittings are reassuring,if a little bulky.
Will connect to copper no bother,but you must cut the copper with a wheel cutter or the speedfit fitting will score internally and leak.

Buy a good name, get good kit
I was originally tempted by some of Speedfit's cheaper alternatives, but decided to go with Speedfit as the accessories were more readily available. I had no problems putting my plumbing together. Although I did worder how much I was paying for the name, I'd still buy Speedfit next time!

Better than the cheaper alternatives.
Good reliability with other JG fittings or compression
