Talbot Pushfit fittings have been around for many years and are the most widely used fittings for small-bore medium density council mains pipes. They are preferred and specified by many councils throughout New Zealand. These are extremely handy, reliable fittings that do not require the tightening of nuts or any other moving parts. They are called Pushfit fittings because the pipe is simply pushed into the fitting firmly. A set of teeth inside the fitting holds the pipe in place. They are significantly faster to install than standard compression fittings and the pipe can only be removed from the fitting with a special tool (a bit like a shoehorn)
They can only be used on medium density (MDOD) type pipes. These are rated to 16 bar (pressure tested to 30 bar) and are Watermark approved.
