How to demount Hep2O

One of Hep2O’s unique advantages is that, once fitted, the joint is safe and secure and cannot be tampered with. Of course, there are instances when a joint needs to be demounted or adjusted, so we have three options for ensuring a simple process.

How to demount Hep2O with HepKey™

The standard HepKey™ is the easiest and quickest way to demount a Hep2O fitting. HepKey™ simply clips around the pipe and depresses the inner sleeve of the fitting. This opens the 316 stainless steel grab ring and releases the pipe. Watch the video below to see the standard HepKey in action.

How to demount Hep2O with HepKey™ Plus

HepKey™ Plus enables the installer to remove the Hep2O fitting with one hand, for example when working in a confined space such as under floorboards. It works by clipping onto the fitting and holding the grab ring open, allowing the pipe to be pulled out whilst leaving one hand free.

HepKey and HepKey plus are available in 10mm, 15mm, 22mm and 28mm versions. They are colour coded to match our packaging, so always easy to locate.
