On no account should a pipe be removed from a jointed PolyPlumb fitting by dismantling.
If the same fitting is then re-jointed, there is real risk that the outer edge of the grab ring will have become damaged and this will reduce the pull-out performance of the joint when subjected to pressure.
The joint will almost certainly fail prematurely and potentially cause serious injury.
If it is necessary to remove a joint pipe from a fitting, the cap-nut should be unscrewed and the pipe with all the socket components present on the pipe end should be pulled out of the socket of the
fitting. The pipe end complete with all the socket components should be cut off and discarded.
A complete component pack of socket spares should be fitted to the socket as described below and pipe jointing should be carried out as described.
The component packs are available in 15mm (PB9515), 22mm (PB9522) and 28mm (PB9528) and are supplied as a cap-nut with all the socket components present in the correct order and retained by a retaining cap.
