Okay, sounds like a good option for connecting pipes. Is it for plastic or copper? K1 works with both plastic and copper– it’s friendly like that. It’s a flexible system that reduces the amount of fixings needed to hold everything in place. This also allows it to be easily installed within walls and other areas that have restricted space.


It sounds perfect. But is this going to go all ‘England in a penalty shootout’ and fail to live up to the hype? Nope, it’s the culmination of decades of precision engineering. It carries a 10-year guarantee, with DGWA and KIWA approvals (that’s important, trust us). It’s tested and certified to BS 6920:2000 and ISO EN2100 (also important). It is also WRAS approved.
