Would you use plastic pipe all the way with an easy fit bar shower kit?

    Hiya

    I'm just fitting a bar shower using the easy fit screw on brackets, instead of using the included offset reducer things.

    I've been plumbing in all the bathroom with plastic pipe and wondered if professional plumbers continue plastic pipe at the final connection, or switch back to copper at an elbow for the compression easy fit bracket of a bar shower please?

    From what I have seen, proper installers always terminate with copper.

    I would use copper personally but tbh there is no reason why you cant use plastic, make sure you use the correct inserts(TSM Inserts if speedfit) and copper olives.

    Many thanks - will use copper. Just picked up the item and the leaflet recommends copper also.
