Leaking plumbing systems often call for replacement of the damaged pipes. As such, you basically have to chop off the old pipe, cut and fit a new copper, PEX, or CPVC pipe, and quickly solder it in place. But isn’t it quite a hassle to go through all those delicate soldering, especially if you’re just a newbie to plumbing?
There is actually a beginner-friendly alternative to fixing broken pipes. It’s by using fittings that employ the so-called “push-fit” technology to securely install a new pipe in place. This easy method requires pushing the new pipe into the fitting up to a certain depth until it locks in place.
