Technical Information

Sizing - How do you determine whether your pipe is Medium Density? What size fitting should be used on what size pipe?

ELYSEE Compression Fittings are designed to suit metric Medium Density polyethylene pipe. This means that the size of the pipe is given by the outside diameter and will therefore correspond to the appropriate size fitting.

Installation Instructions

STEP 1: Cutting Your Pipe

Cut your Medium Density polyethylene pipe using pipe cutters or a hand saw. Ensure you cut the pipe square in view of achieving a leak proof connection with your ELYSEE Compression Fittings.

STEP 2: Preparing Your Pipe Ends

Using your ELYSEE pipe deburrer or file, carefully remove any rough edges and prepare a small taper on the end of the pipe.

STEP 3: Installing Your ELYSEE Compression Fitting

Remove the compression cap and white grip ring from the fitting and slide these onto the pipe. Push the ELYSEE Compression Fitting onto the pipe until the end of the pipe meets the moulded shoulder inside the fitting. Then slide the compression cap and white grip ring back up the pipe until they meet the fitting. Screw the compression cap onto the cap thread. You will feel the cap begin to tighten up. As this tightens up the grip ring will be compressed, biting into the pipe to eliminate any horizontal or rotational movement when the pressure is applied. Once you have done the cap up as tight as possible by hand, and then use either a ELYSEE Cap Wrench or Poly Grips to ensure positive compression.

YOU NOW HAVE A RELIABLE AND DURABLE ELYSEE PIPE JOINT...CONNECTING VALVE
