John Guest Fittings - How to Make a Connection

Step 1 - Assemble the connection

Connecting standard quick-connect fittings

Push up to pipe stop.

Push the pipe into the fitting, to the pipe stop. The collet (gripper) has stainless steel teeth which hold the pipe firmly in position while the 'O' Ring provides a permanent leak proof seal.

Pull to check secure

Pull on the pipe to check it is secure. It is good practice to test the system prior to leaving site and/or before use.

Disconnecting standard John Guest push-in fittings

Ensure system is depressurized before removing fittings. Push in the collet against the face of the fitting. With the collet held in this position the pipe can be removed. The fitting can then be re-used.

Step 2 - Verify the connection

It is recommended (and good practice dictates) that you remember to pressure test the completed installation before use. For recommended test procedures please refer to the Technical Documentation (available in our catalogs).
