JG Speedfit’s Plumbing and Underfloor heating systems have been installed in a prestigious extension in the Wells Head Cottage, an original listed building.
The installation of both plumbing and heating is across two floors, downstairs the extension will add a new kitchen, utility room, and walkway between the existing and new building, while the upstairs of the extension will be a master bedroom with ensuite.
The majority of the plumbing in the new extension was in the kitchen and ensuite. Due to the flexibility of the pipe it was easy for the contractor to cable the pipe through the joists to the take-off points saving time, by reducing the number of joins required.
Once all the pipe work was installed it was pressure tested as is recommended in the Speedfit literature; 2 bar for 10 minutes and 10 bar for 10 minutes.
During the second fix JG Speedfit Hand tighten flexi hoses were used to connect to the faucets. This meant that connecting to threads in tight spaces was quick and easy, as the fitting only requires hand tightening, removing the need for tools.
