I'm thinking of taking the plunge into press fit. Just with working in lofts etc it seems a lot safer. Can anyone recommend any and if they think it's worthwhile.

Thanks

novopress aco 103 and its brillant you can hire a tool for around 70 for a week to trail it if you like it pull the trigger etc
 
Is there any situations or downsides where you wouldn't recommend press fit like it not fitting in chases or underneath boiler close to kitchen worktop etc. They seem brill and look the way forward i see a lot of Pros only one con the price and passing the cost on to the customer for the fittings in domestic purposes.

Fit them anywhere no distance required from a boiler like plastic

Slightly more bulky but around the same area as solder ring / tec tite

tool access can be a con but you have to think head when installing and most of the hard ones you can press out and reinstall etc

I use a REMS press gun and X-Press fittings, Williams stock them so easy to get hold of. As long as you can get the jaws in then they are great, as Shaun said, you need to think ahead - space pipes around 50mm apart and a similar distance from walls or ceiling so you can get the jaws onto the fittings.
