Push-Fit System Installation Method
Cutting the Pipe
Mark the spot where you want to cut with pen. Then, cut the pipe smoothly and clearly in right angle by using Aikang Greentech’s pipe cutter.
Inserting the support sleeve
Support sleeve, an integral part of the joint, needs to be fully inserted inside the pipe before connecting the pipe into the Aikang Greentech PB or brass fitting.
Use of Lubricant
When you use the lubricant for PB pipe and fitting, you can insert the pipe more easily into the fitting.
Inserting the pipe into fitting
The pipe should be inserted into the fitting to full socket depth such that the insertion depth mark aligns with the outer end of the cap on fitting.
Avoid disassembling the fitting
Aikang Greentech pipe should not be removed from the fitting by removing the cap. If you need to disjoint it, never use the same grab ring twice and must follow the Aikang Greentech jointing procedure.
Cap is factory fitted part to obtain the right torque, requires no further tightening. If cap becomes loose, it can be easily tightened by hand without any tools.
Avoid connection on bent position
The Aikang Greentech pipe must not be bent after insertion. If bent, it could cause leakage in the pipe or damage the grab ring.
Carrying and storing the pipe
Aikang Greentech pipe is soft. Therefore, do not scratch, or place them near the sunlight and fire. Please handle with care.
