Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does fit ........ ....... if you know what you're doing. I've used maybe 50 of these couplers fitting kitchens and bathrooms in older properties, so in response to all of the negative reviews on here - imperial pipework was made using only a nominal bore - but more specifically with no standard tube wall thickness. Look at some old half-inch and you'll see that the copper tube walls are almost twice the thickness of modern 15mm in some cases - and it's this which causes the fitting issue, not incorrect dimensions of the coupler. So what you do is this; 1 Cut 1/2" pipe to size with a proper tube cutter. Make sure there are no burrs and clean pipe thoroughly using steel wool. 2 Slip the coupler over an offcut of 15mm. 3 One end will fit snugly, one end will feel looser. This is the half-inch end. 4 Mark this end with a Sharpie or similar so you know which is which. 5 Check inside the coupler's solder ring to ensure that it doesn't contain burrs of solder - this will sometimes give you problems with fitting. If you see any burrs, clean them off using a round file. 6 If the half-inch end doesn't now slip snugly over the pipe, file a gentle chamfer on the pipe end until the pipe can just slip into the end of the coupler socket. 7 Apply plenty of flux to the pipe - this also acts as a lubricant for the impending fit. 8 Pop the coupler just onto the end of the pipe so that you can see down inside the coupler itself. 9 Give it a gentle tap or two with a small hammer, and it will slip on - maybe more tightly than usual because of the wall thickness of your specific pipe. Check that the pipe is fully located in the socket by looking down inside it. 10 Pop on the 15mm and solder up. You're welcome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Have to agree with most of the other reviews regarding this product. There seems to be no difference between the 15mm. & 1/2'' sockets - it quite simply would not go over the 1/2'' pipe. Will be returning to store...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simply doesn't fit Just like many of the other reviewers, I found these won't fit imperial half-inch pipe. I got out my digital caliper and found that the half-inch end of this fitting is 15.2mm in diameter, whereas the half-inch pipe I want it to fit to is 15.3mm in diameter. Save yourself the disappointment and use a JG speedfit push fit 15mm coupler instead.

I need to reduce a US size 1/2L copper pipe to a UK 15mm copper pipe. Would this do it?
