Why Should I Use Plasson Compression Fittings?

Taking on a plumbing project? Here’s how plasson compression fittings could help.

In the world of plumbing, plasson compression fittings are all the rage.

They have completely revolutionised the way polyethylene (PE) pipes are connected. If you’re looking for a safe, reliable connection to water mains, they’re the ideal choice for your project.

But how else can you benefit from Plasson compression fittings?

The experts here at Total Pipeline Systems reveal all in this article.

Heat-free connections

Plasson compression fittings eliminate the need for soldering or welding a connection.

If you’re working on a project on a construction site, for example, you’ll find this particularly advantageous if you’re unable to get a permit to complete hot works, or wherever else it may be unwise to expose a naked flame.

Easy to assemble

One of the many perks of Plasson compression fittings is how quick and easy they are to assemble and install.

So easy, in fact, that you could do it yourself at home.

No expensive tools are required, and you won’t need assistance from a professional plumber – but this isn’t to say that they aren’t suitable for professional installations, if you’d feel more comfortable asking for their help.

If you do decide to go ahead and install them yourself, here’s what you need to do:

  • Step 1

Ensure that the pipe you’ll be inserting into is free from scratches and punctures and clear of any debris (sand, stones, mud, etc.).

  • Step 2

Slacken the nut until the thread is half visible, and leave the nut on the fitting while inserting your pipe.

  • Step 3

Twist the pipe into the fitting through the nut, split ring and rubber seal and tighten firmly – either by hand or using a wrench.


Unlike stainless steel or copper compression fittings, plasson compression fittings do not corrode and can accommodate some of the most abrasive materials.

Being made from polypropylene copolymer, these fittings offer exceptional resistance to mechanical damage and general wear and tear, too.

This means they’ll last you a lot longer and you won’t have to worry about replacing them any time soon.


Plasson compression fittings also offer great economical benefits, and they can be reused multiple times.

However, it’s good practice to change the compression ring for a bit of extra peace of mind if you ever decide to take the joint apart.
