    You need to make sure the pipe is pushed into to the connector as far as it will go.
    You then need (I think from memory) to then pull the collar out as far as it will come to lock the pipe in.

    When you've pushed the pipes all the way in press the little plastic pin into its hole in the tap body between the pipes....stops the pipes coming out.

    No chance, got five fitters back at base!:thumb:

    Plunbing in a MH is the same as in a boat and I am the worlds bloody expert, not paying £60 an hour plus vat for a boatyard to sort it!

    Hi Coolman, reading your post carefully you seem to be talking about 2 items,

    1/ The push-in and pull back item seem to refer to the in-line type of connector that is used to connect 2 bits of plastic piping, sometimes to a "T" joint or to a straight connector, if the leak is here then make sure you have not got dirt or even wood bits from manufacture into the joint, also it is possible to damage the little "O" ring in the unit that makes the water seal, the damage can be coursed by a sharp edge on the end of the plastic piping I.E. not cleaned off properly by the original fitter.

    2/ the push in pin item seems to refer to the body of the mixer tap, the tap unit has 2 holes, 1 hot and 1 cold the 2 pipes must be fitted at the same time and held in place the the little plastic pin is inserted to hold both the pipes in place, and "O" ring is on the part of the pipe that goes into the tap body. a/ make sure you have the "O" ring on the pipes, b/ the tap body which is made of plastic is not very strong and if you have had to use force to get the pipe in you may have cracked the tap body. If you have cracked it it will be very difficult to see.

    In my opinion the whole arrangement is made of unsuitable materials and pooly engineered and tipical of the equipment fitted into M/H's.
