  • Dramatically reduces installation time especially in confined spaces
  • No tools or special skills required to install fittings
  • Meets NSF/ANSI Standards
  • Maximum working pressure: 174 psi @ 68°F
  • Maximum working temperature: 203°F (95°C) @ 87 psi
  • Superseal® insert gives a secondary seal to help prevent leaks
  • Since no soldering is needed to make repairs, the risk of fire is reduced making these fittings ideal for working in confined areas
  • Easy to disconnect without damaging the pipe or fittings
  • Corrosion free
  • Pipe flexibility permits the cabling of pipe through less accessible areas
  • 2014 Federal Safe Drinking Water Act compliant

Helpful Tips & Important Usage Information

Do not use with gas, fuel oil or compressed air applications.

John Guest fittings are designed, manufactured and assembled in the UK by John Guest Speedfit in compliance with AB1953, ASTM F877, CSA B137-5 and ASSE 1-61. These connectors use a grip then seal collet arrangement. Simply push the fitting fully onto the pipe and twist the plastic nut to lock in place. These fittings help ensure an easier working environment in confined spaces and removes the need for tools.

Per the manufacturer these basic guidelines should be followed when using these fittings.

Plumbing: While not required, John Guest recommends the use of pipe inserts for plastic pipe connections with John Guest products in Standard Residential Plumbing (hot and cold water) installations.

Heating: John Guest requires the use of pipe inserts for plastic pipe connections with John Guest Speedfit products in all Heating installations.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "What does Spigot mean?"
A. Spigot references one side of a fitting that will fit inside a "push-fit" fitting. The manufacturer of "push-fit" fittings refers to this as a "stem".

Q. "What does CTS mean?"
A. CTS stands for "copper tube size" which is a nominal pipe size. This means that the outside diameter will be 1/8" bigger than the "size" of the pipe. For example, 1/2" CTS has an actual o.d. of 5/8", 3/4" CTS has an actual o.d. of 7/8", and 1" CTS has an actual o.d. of 1-1/8".

Q. "Do you offer any other push connect fittings?"
A. Yes, we also offer these great quick connect (push to fit) fittings: ProBite® fittings and SharkBite® fittings. If you are looking for other fittings and/or tools, please see our pipe fittings index page.

Q. "Can I plumb these John Guest quick connect fittings behind the wall? And will I need an access panel or box?"
A. Yes, these John Guest fittings can be plumbed behind the wall. The fittings do not require an access panel unless they are used in a concrete slab application.

Q. "What are the PEI series Speedfit quick connect fittings made out of?"
A. The fittings are made out of PEX (Polyethylene cross linked) with the exception of the brass and polysulfone male adapters.

Q. "Can these Speedfit quick connect fittings be used for hydronic heating?"
A. Yes. If using PEX pipe the fittings must be used with an insert fitting. Copper pipe will not require an insert fitting.

Q. "Can these John Guest push-in fittings be buried in soil?"
A. No, we do not recommend burying the fittings.

Q. "Why do some of the quick connect fittings say 'spigot' and what does it mean?"
A. A "spigot" is the term used for a plastic, non threaded, male end of a fitting that is the same size as the pipe used to fit into the female or hub end of the same pipe sized fitting. The spigot end will fit into (inside) a "push-fit" fitting, such as a tee or coupling or elbow. This spigot end is used in place of pipe to help reduce the need to buy extra fittings.

Q. "Do I need to use a pipe insert every time I connect a PEX tubing to a fitting?"
A. Yes, the inserts are to be inserted inside the end of the PEX tubing and help ensure that the shape of the PEX tubing is kept circular, making for a better seal between the outside diameter of the pipe and the 'O' ring. They also make PEX tubing more rigid, helping prevent 'weeping' past the 'O' ring if a side load is applied.

Q. "How do I disconnect these quick connect fittings?"
A.
How to disconnect John Guest push connect fittings

Q. "Can these John Guest push-in fittings be used for swimming pool re-circulation lines?"
A. No, unfortunately, John Guest push-in fittings are not suitable for use in water systems containing high levels of chlorine.

Q. "Are John Guest push-in fittings able to be used for compressed air piping?"
A. No, absolutely not. John Guest push-in fittings must not be used for compressed air applications.
