Pipes moving when tap turned on.

Postby harryhog » Sun Oct 31, 2021 3:31 pm

Hi I have just finished installing a new bath and shower mixer. Everything has been installed using speed fit and plastic pipe. No leaks so far which is good, but I notice whenever I turn on the taps all of the plastic pipe Jerks and the seals on the push fit pipes move. I’m worried this may cause a leak and also on of the push fit joints is near the floor and I’m concerned the movement could result in the connector off. Any advice would be great.

Thanks.

Hi harryhog,
You could try fitting more pipe clips on the offending pipes.
