There’s a brand new product available to heating installers and plumbers, and like all great new ideas it’s simple. It’s a product that sees around 10 million of these connectors sold in the UK each year – so used literally every day, but there’s not been an improvement made to the standard option of these for years… until now.
This new product comes courtesy of Navigator. The Serpent is the new way to make flexible connections – particularly if you’re working in a restricted, confined space – like under a sink where there are several other pipes and fittings, or if it’s fully on display and you don’t want a mesh connector that quickly rusts or at best, loses its pristine look soon after fitting. And it’s an all stainless steel construction product – so its reliable and does the job 100%.
You’ll all have come across connectors that when you bend them reduce the size of the bore and restrict the flow of water through the pipe. The Serpent has no inner liner to rupture or block, and even when the hose is bent to an acute angle, the full bore is maintained, resulting in perfect flow and much easier installation.
The pressure rating and flexibility of the product has been successfully tested for leakage and pressure to BS EN ISO 1086:2023 which specifies a maximum test pressure of 31.5 Bar and a leak test of 1.5 times that pressure.
It’s NSF Regulation-4 approved for use with potable water and uses only WRAS approved materials, it comes in white and has a wipe clean outer cover. It can be bent and re-bent – it won’t split or snap – and it looks really good in a visible installation – you won’t want to be hiding this connector.
The fittings at either end – and there are a wide selection of these, both sizes and end connections – are stainless steel and easy to tighten and loosen.
