Reduce install time by up to 40% compared to traditional methods. With no tools or blowtorch needed, simply push the fitting onto the pipe in seconds using your bare hands.
And if you make a mistake or need to lengthen the pipe run, simply twist and unlock the fitting and remove and reuse. Longer pipe runs can be made using less fittings to save you time and reduce the chance of expensive callbacks relating to leaks.
Working in tight, awkward spaces or running pipework through joists or small crawl spaces is labour-intensive, time consuming and difficult. Not anymore. By using plastic push-fit, or combining it with traditional methods, you will make light work of the job as JG Layflat® flexible tubing can turn 90 degree corners without the need for elbow fittings and can be installed in long runs without the need for couplings.
Speedfit is installed, demounted and refitted without tools, which means no blowtorch, fire, flames, flux, or mess. The elasticity of plastic also reduces the chance of burst pipes in freezing conditions as well the noise of water flow, and by conserving energy and no sweating pipes at a lower surface touch, your customers and insurers will love it too.
Plastic push-fit resists corrosion and scale build-up reducing the chance of pinhole leaks and blockages.

I use Speedfit for underfloor heating and general plumbing and heating works. I still tend to use copper where pipe work is visible but plastic in screed floors, voids and long runs. I have used Speedfit for the last 20 years due to its quality, and the fact that I’ve never had a failure. When you combine labor savings and the cost of the product, you definitely save time and money with plastic push-fit. On a typical job, I estimate that working with plastic cuts install time in half.

John Guest’s compressed air system effectively helps us in offering our customers the option to both surface finish and paint their bike to reflect their style, whether it is an off the peg frame or UK made. The option of customising bikes to the rider’s taste is a service that not many high performance bike manufacturers offer. Most manufacturers build their bikes on a production line but our handmade bikes offer a superior finish when compared to a mass produced bike, thanks to Speedfit Technology.
Greg Stevens, Technical Manager Enigma Bicycle Works
John Guest powered compressed air lines have made our spray painting process very efficient. The air pressure remains consistent throughout and desirable pressure can easily be achieved as there aren’t any pressure fluctuations due to unwanted leaks in the circuit, which helps in getting a smooth layer of paint. Getting a smooth and consistent layers of paint not only give a good finish to the bike but play an important role in maintaining the optimum weight. John Guest’s compressed air system has considerably reduced our electricity bills as there are no leaks in the pipeline, making us commercially more viable.
