    Hi,

    Working on a job with 3 late 90’s underfloor heating manifolds.

    Basically 22m pipes with some nipples welded on which have rubber hoses crimped on.

    pressurised the system with Air to 3.5 bar earlier and had a few leaks, system hasn’t been run in 2 years so not too bad.

    Opinions on best clamps or methods for putting back together please????

    plan is to cut the top off each rubber pipe so I’m back to standard thickness and can cut off the ear clips too. Then put a bit of pfte tape on each nipple To give extra width before using decent jubilee clips.

    Any better plans? Are ear clips better than jubilee for 3 Bar?

    thanks
