    Anyone out their have any problems with (grey Hepworth fitting) with green gripper.
    We had some of them that the gripper just fell away in bits.
    Wonder why Hepworth changed to white fitting with stainless steel gripper.

    I don't use plastic push fit, but I have come across the green plastic gripper in Hep fittings broken into segments. No idea if that happened when the installer was pushing the fitting on, perhaps carelessly not in line, or if it just happens later.
