Ok! I will admit it. I like 'playing' with all these poly pipe fittings. Just like a 'grown ups' Meccano set. The 'bullet proof' poly pipe of today (blue striped) is so easy to fit up. The older rural class poly required a sort of tapered fitting to be bashed into the inside of the pipe end before fitting any part. This magic 'blue stripe' is so easy. Just saw off a length, wipe a hunk of emery tape over the swarf left from the cut, loosen, moisten and slide the fitting on. Tighten. How much fun is that. Have a red wine handy to celebrate the pressurising the new pipe line. Any excuse for a magic red is good enough. No leaks. Makes a guy want to run pipes all over the place.
