Whether you’re carrying out brand-new installations, undertaking repairs and upgrades to pipe problems or responding to emergency callouts, every installer strives to deliver for their customers and protect their hard-earned reputation. To do that, high-quality workmanship and the use of tried and tested components are key.

This winning combination will also support professional installers to overcome some of the common pipe problems they’ll typically face on a job – from working in tight spaces to overcoming leaks. Leaks are perhaps the most common challenge in any plumbing system, having the potential to cause costly damage and undermine performance and efficiency. They can be caused by corrosion, cracks, natural wear and tear, or even blockages – but whatever the cause, leaks are a problem that installers can take steps to avoid.

Of course, pipe is a fundamental part of every plumbing and heating system and, as such, it can play a role in overcoming any broader challenges a system may encounter. Let’s take a look at some of the pipe options available from JG Speedfit that are commonly being used by installers to create reliable, efficient and long-lasting plumbing systems.

Pipes for every challenge

Every solution in the JG Speedfit range is designed with quality and ease of installation in mind – and it’s no different when it comes to pipes.

Polybutylene pipe takes the lead in durability and long-term performance, as well as aiding simple installation. The material offers a host of benefits, showcasing its flexible characteristics that support installers to overcome the intricacies of individual installations while ensuring reliability and performance throughout its service life.

As a polybutylene barrier pipe, JG Layflat pipe from JG Speedfit is ideal for use on hot, cold and central heating systems, equipping installers with the versatility needed to tackle a variety of jobs. But the benefits don’t end there. Made up of five layers, JG Layflat ultra flexible pipe facilitates long pipe runs and is designed to lay flat once removed from the coil – reducing the need for lots of connections to be made across a system and effectively potential leak points.

This in-built flexibility is ideal when navigating the complexities of some pipe problems – whether that’s tight spots or applications that require non-linear pipework, like the installation of new appliances.

But, what about when more rigid pipework is required? Well, JG Speedfit has the solution for that, too. PEX Barrier Pipe provides slightly more rigidity than polybutylene pipe, making it perfect for straighter pipe runs – both long and short. Supplied in straight lengths and coils, the pipe is also made up of five layers, each of which contributes to its unwavering performance.
