Gripmax Plastic Compression Fittings


Gripmax Plastic Compression Fittings

Gripmax Polypropylene Compression Fittings comprise a comprehensive range of Straight Couplings, Elbows, Tees, Stop Ends, Valves and Accessories in the size range ½” and 3/4".

They are ideal for the quick and cost effective connection and repair of both Normal and Heavy Gauge LDPE Pipes. Each Fitting Socket is fitted with a Red colour “Collet” as standard which is suitable for connection of Normal Gauge Pipes. Each Fitting, depending on the number of sockets, is also supplied with a Blue Collet (s) for connection of Heavy Gauge Pipes. They are simple and quick to use and do not require the use of sealants of any kind.

They are hand tightenable. In addition, when fitted with the Universal Pipe Connection Kit, they are suitable for connection to a wide variety of external pipe types and diameters; for example the 3/4” fitting is suitable for joining any pipes with an external diameter of between 14.7mm (IR½”) and 22mm (which includes both ½” Normal and Heavy Gauge PE) and therefore provide for the uniting of pipes both similar and dissimilar in sizes. Connection of say a ½" normal gauge pipe to a 3/4" Copper Pipe would require the use of a 3/4" Body fitted with a Universal Pipe connection Kit on one side and a Reducing Insert Kit on the other. They are extremely durable and robust and can withstand a maximum pressure of 16 Bar @ 20Deg C.

They are also suitable for use with potable water and have full WRC - NSF approval (certificate no. P085305).

Features
  • Easy and Quick to Install
  • Robust & Durable
  • Forgiving – can accommodate many pipe diameters and types
  • Suitable for use with Potable Water

UV Ministar Water Purification & Desinfection Kit


UV Ministar Water Purification & Desinfection Kit

Brief Description

The Ultraviolet Unit is used in conjunction with Sediment and Activated Carbon Filters to deliver clean, disinfected bacteria free drinking water. the process begins when the water passes through the 5 micron Sediment Filter which removes any sand, silt, dirt and rust particles that may be present. It then passes into a second filter containing Activated Carbon which provide chlorine, taste and odour reduction.
Finally the Ultraviolet Disinfection Unit utilises the properties of UV rays to destroy bacteria, mould, algae and virus contamination. It effectively inactivates common pathogens such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia and the most bacterial pathogens. UV radiation, at drinking water treatment doses, does not create any significant disinfection by-products (DBPs).
It is a low maintenance, environmentally friendly technology that eliminates the need for chemical treatment while ensuring high levels of disinfection. These factors make UV treatment an attractive option for people seeking to control pathogens in both ground and surface waters.

Introduction

Domestic Water Filtration, Purification and Disinfection is something that has become more important to people today than ever before. Pollution of our rivers, lakes and reservoirs has regrettably becom increasingly acute in recent years, most of shich is directly attributable to the effects of acid rain, industrial and agricultural discharge, flooding and the wide spread use of chemicals ultimately finding their way into our water supply. Most of our municipal supply comes from these sources, which, althought treated before introduction to our water mains, contains many contaminants such as sand, silt, dirt, rust particles, organic chemicals, sulphur, pesticides, herbicides, atmosperic gases and minerals. Unpleasent tastes, odours and poor clarity are a common feature of our water supply today. Additionaly, water containing dangerous Micro Organisms has become more prevalent. The quality of our water as delivered can no longer be taken for granted. It is important o check that the product you select is capable of removing the substance that you want removed. The UV MiniStar incorporates 3 different elements; each of which is intended to do particular job:


-Sediment Filter removes any sand, silt, dirt and rust particles that may be present in the water;
-Activated Carbon Filter provides Chlorine, Taste and odor reduction;
-Ultraviolet Disinfection is designed to prevent Bug Contamination; UV disinfection will destroy bacteria, mould algae virus contamination. It effectively inactivates common pathogens such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia and most bacterial pathogens.

Included with this kit is a Sediment and a Granular Activated Carbon cartridge, as well as an enclosed Ultra Violet Unit. In combination these are intended for single point of use and will reduce sediment, improve clarity, taste and odour as well as disinfect and purify the water supply to the dedicated outlet.

Ultra Violet (UV) disinfection is the exposure of contaminated water to radiation from UV light in order to kill off harmful micro organism. UV light penetrates through the Cell Structure. It causes a molecular re-arrangement of the micro organisms DNA which prevents it from reproducing. If a Cell cannot reproduce; it is considered dead.

Tap Head Replacement



See our full range of Tap Replacement Parts.

General Instructions:

The Easy Plumb Replacement Tap Head Kit includes all of the components necessary to repair Taps which are either leaking or have seized, or which require upgrading from the traditional spindle type tap. The Reducer Bushes in this kit may be surplus to requirements. They are there to facilitate the repair of the majority of the huge variety of Taps that have been sold into the market over the past 30 years or so. You may purchase this kit with a very high degree of certainty that it will solve your particular problem. If it does not, please contact us and afford us the opportunity to help or return the kit to your supplier for a full refund. When changing Spindles on Bath, Basin or Sink Taps it will in most cases be possible to simply substitute the new for the old without the need to add the Bushings or Spacers. However, should you find that the threaded hole in the body of the Tap is clearly bigger than the threaded section of the new spindle, screw on the bushing provided which will have the effect of increasing the thread diameter of the spindle and allow it to screw into the Tap body.

In order to carry out the job, follow these simple instructions.

1. Turn off the water supply.
2. Remove the "head" from your existing tap. There are many different kinds, of which the most common two are illustrated here.
3. Using a wrench or similar too, unscrew the spindle by turning it anti clockwise very gently..It is imperative that you hold the Tap body very firmly in order to ensure that it also does not run.
4. Compare the old spindle with the new one and if it looks similar or the same, simply screw it (with the head already pre-fitted) into position and tighten. remove the Tap head and use the wrench to lighten into the body. Be careful not to over tighten and again take care not to allow the Tap body to turn or rotate. Replace the Tap head.
5. Should there e obvious differences in the spindles, chose and add the appropriate components to the new spindles as appropriate having noted in the points above. Thread the assembly into the Tap body observing previous warnings.
6. Turn on the water supply and test the taps.


Note: If your Taps are very old and slightly taller than normal, it may be necessary to increase the overall height of the spindle so that the washerca reach the "seat" of the Tap body. To do tisremove the washer and replace it with either one or two of the "spacers" (depending on height requirements) and replace the washer in the base of the spacer. Two screws are provided specially for this - a short one when one spacer is used and a longer one when booth spacers are.

Radiator valve heads

Hi, all of the heads on my radiators valves are either lost or broken and have been installed for a number of years. Is it possible to get replacement heads or will I have to replace the whole valve ?

Hi Besmart,

You don`t need to replace the whole valve. We stock a range of Universal Replacement Rad. Valve Caps which are available in White & Chrome Plated. You can find them as well in pack of 3 which is more economical. You can find them here Universal Replacement Rad. Valve Caps on the bottom of the page (last 4 products).

If you would like more information about our products, please let us know.

Regards,

Cristian

There should be a seperatecold feed for the cold water services in the house and a seperate cold feed for the hot water cylinder. In the drawing, colds for the bathroom are tee'd off the cold to the cylinder.

There should be a cold feed to the expansion tank. Perhaps not shown as no boiler system included?

I need to replace a few of the attached pics in my house.
Is it just the head or will i need to purchase a valve & head (complete set ) or are they all a universal fitting that will work on any radiator?




Please advise.

Many thanks
