Do You need Special Tools to Use Unitwist? NO
UniTwist fittings can be assembled using just your hands, obviously you need a Hacksaw or pipe cutter to cut the pipe, but just push the fitting onto the pipe and hand tighten and it will work fine, if the pipe is damaged or not round simply tighten the Nut and the drip will stop for sure, 100%. This is our WOW factor compared to our competitors, No Tools and Combination Push-Fit and Compression action, basically a Double sealing action.
Can UniTwist be Re-Used? YES
UniTwist Fittings are fully re-usable, simply remove the nut, pull the pipe out, remove the O-Ring/Power Spacer and Grip Ring from the pipe, reasemble them the same way you removed them and there you are, ready to use again.
Will UniTwist Work on Damaged Pipe? YES. In Mud? YES. On Pipe that has not been De-Burred? YES. On Pipe that is very Dirty? YES
.Another one of UniTwist's WOW Factors was created by using Expert Plumbers to help design UniTwist. We set ourseves what sounds like an Impossible Mandate and that was:Should the Installation enviroment be terrible like in Mud, if the Pipe is Damaged even badly Damaged, if the User is Inexperienced, and the pipe is not cut straight, or the pipe has been badly treated as bad as being driven over and is egg shaped or worse, say the fitting is not tightened at all, So you can see the thinking Whatever the situation you can think of we said UniTwist MUST & WILL WORK. And what we ended up with is a Fitting that If you just push the fitting on and forget to tighten it then it acts like a Push-Fit fitting and works perfectly, and If the pipe is damaged in the most terrible way all you have to do is round the end so it goes into the fitting and then tighten the Nut and it will seal, PERFECTION. The Patented Compression action of the O-Ring compressing onto the pipe when the Nut is Tightened seals no matter what, UniTwist Really is The perfect solution Push-Fit Compression.As we say (Push-Fit with a Twist) Due to the Double sealing Action.
