Winters are one of the best times of the year, except for one reason: frozen water pipelines.
They can be stressful, troubling and costly. Not only do they make a pool out of your basement, broken pipelines can damage ceilings too.
More to the point; you need to fix them fast. In case you can afford the services of a plumber, allow us to help you mend broken pipes with push fittings.
Here’s a quick guide on how you can install a push in fitting to repair broken/leaking pipes:
Push fittings are extremely easy to use. As the name implies, you only need to ‘push’ the fitting over the connecting pipe. When doing so, you’ll hear a ‘click’ sound. Also, you can get hold of the pipe twice to make sure it’s connected throughout. Make sure that the pipe’s end is round and even. This ensures an appropriate fit.
Now, this can be a little tricky. If done in the right manner, it’s a simple process. However if not, it can twist the entire repairing procedure.
If you’re working with plastic pipes, you need a plastic tube cutter. Similar to scissors, put the cutters around the pipe and exert some pressure, simultaneously forcing it front and back over the pipe. Once done, squeeze a little and voila!
However, if using copper pipes, the process is simpler. But don’t rush. That’s because rushing can lead to an oval cut in the pipe, making the fittings useless. Get hold of a copper tube cutter and work it around the pipe slowly, at least 3-4 times.
