Push and Press - Like Two Peas in a Pod

While the plumbing industry continues to debate the merits of both push and press, there has been a noticeable rise in the amount of systems being installed that now benefit from a combined approach.

It is clear that today’s installer is much more likely to opt for a system that provides cost and time saving benefits over traditional forms of jointing.  And, with the latest technological advancements in quality and range of fittings it is obvious why!

Press Technology

Press-fit has a reputation for being a high performing solution.  Since its inception in the late 1950’s its popularity has been paramount to the success of many projects.  Because there is no need to use heat and solder its is a very clean and fast jointing method.  It doesn’t leave carbon deposits or flux so there is less risk of corrosion and time required to flush the system.

Push Technology

On the other hand push-fit is relatively new in comparison – introduced back in the 1980’s it was originally classified as a light domestic solution used in conjunction with plastic piping.  But today’s metal fittings have advanced that much, push-fit is now being used on a full range of projects from small domestic to large scale commercial, including The Shard.  The technological improvements of push-fit fittings means they are now compatible with a variety of pipe materials and their range can easily dovetail with a wide choice from plastic to flexible metal, copper and even carbon steel.

Push-fit offers similar advantages to that of press-fit.  As there is no heat required to seal the joint there is no need for a hot works permit which significantly reduces costs associated such as administration and insurance premiums.  Labour time saving is another distinct advantage, the process is faster and  there is no longer a requirement to stay on site for up to two hours following the use of heat as a precautionary measure to guard against fire .

Another reason as to why these two alternative methods of jointing have been preferred is the issue of working in confined spaces.   It can be almost impossible to ensure that a joint is made correctly, when using traditional techniques, if access to it is restricted. If the blowtorch for example, cannot be passed around the fitting completely there is a risk that jointing is incomplete and a corresponding risk of leakage.

Combination

Modern systems have become much more advanced with highly engineered fittings that incorporate fail safe features such as the XPress unique Leak Before Press design, enables easy identification of unpressed joints and Tectite’s patented TectSEAL, directional seals pre-lubricated for reduced insertion force and the provision of a reliable seal.

Installers have now discovered that a combination of these jointing methods can provide a total solution that is still less time consuming, safer than traditional methods and offers a robust system.
