Solder Ring and End Feed - What is the Difference?
Both of these plumbing joints use solder - but what is the difference between the two kinds of fittings?
Designed by John Guest initially for use within the brewery and automotive trades, Speedfit flexible pipe and fittings was one of the earliest plastic plumbing systems to be widely adopted by plumbers and housebuilders. All fittings work on a simple push fit concept utilising a grab ring and seal. No special tools are required. The system is WRC approved and carries the British Standards Kitemark.
Fittings can be used with either copper tube or Speedfit pipe and is suitable for use on domestic hot and cold water services and central heating applications, including pressurised and combi systems.
