Polyplumb Underfloor Tube and Fittings Guide
This page gives an outline of how polyplumb tubes and fittings are used within a Polyplumb Underfloor Heating system.
The main benefits of the Polyplumb system are : Low Maintenance, Simple Installation, Easy to Control, Flexible Design, Energy Efficient, Secure, Clean and Safe.

Polyplumb manifolds use Polyplumb fittings for connecting to a circuit. As many of our domestic floor heating systems use 15mm Polyplumb pipe, any of the pipe not required for your project can be re-used for other heating or hot/cold water services using the Polyplumb fittings range.
There are six stages to successfully jointing the Polyplumb system. These instructions apply to Polyplumb when used in hot and cold water or heating applications, including under floor central heating.
1a. Cutting Polyplumb pipe
Always use one of the approved pipe cutters (Code PB777 or PB781). A slight rotation of the pipe when cutting will help make the operation easier. Never use a hacksaw. Wherever possible, cut on a depth insertion mark, these “K” shaped marks are equally spaced along the pipe and indicate the depth required for full insertion into a Polyplumb socket fitting.
1b. Cutting Copper Pipe for insertion into a Polyplumb fitting
Wherever possible, use a rotational pipe cutter when cutting copper pipe. Ensure that all cut ends have a rounded lead in, with burrs removed. Never use a hacksaw.You will need to mark the depth insertion on the pipe, the insertion depths are shown in the table.
