In this regard, can you mix plastic and copper plumbing?
Making the connection between plastic pipes such as ABS or PVC and metal pipes such as copper or galvanized steel is very straightforward. The chemicals used in the manufacture of any of these pipes do not react with one another, so you don't have the corrosion factor to worry about.
Subsequently, question is, can plastic pipe be used with compression fittings? Connection to compression fitting Many, but not all, compression fittings are suitable for use with plastic fittings and pipe. The connection should not need more than 2 full turns after the olive has gripped the pipe. Copper olives are preferable to brass olives.
Besides, can I connect plastic pipe to radiator valve?
Yes you can use plastic pipe into the rad valves. Use these (item number) 52932 to make a better job of it if the pipes come down from above (inside plasterboard walls and coming out from a hole directly behind the radiators). The male end goes into the valve compression and the pipe pushes into the female side.
Can you use compression fittings on PVC pipe?
CPVC pipes are readily joined with plastic fittings and glue, but when that isn't practical, you can join them with plastic compression fittings.
