Flexi Pipe Connector to PVC Pipe for new tap

by Oscarboat » Sun Jan 19, 2020 8:44 pm

Hi all,
Been trying to fit new sink and move from pillar taps to a mixer. Previous piping was all rigid pvc with push fittings (not sure if I'm getting the lingo right). Went to toolstation to buy flexi-hoses to connect the new tap and the pipes and they sold me ones with an apparent push fit connector (see below and here - https://www.toolstation.com/pushfit-tap ... ap%20tails). Problem is it is leaking badly when we turn on the water! The other fittings work by pushing in and then twisting to give some compression (I'm guessing) but the push connectors on the flexible hoses don't have anything to twist I don't think. So I've just pushed the pipe in but it isn't giving a tight seal. Any ideas? Have I got the wrong hose or doing something stupid?
