    Are the 3m straight lengths of 22mm pipe as flexible as the coiled pipe e.g. can I take it around corners without adding 90 degree elbows?

    The shortest coil of 22mm Hep2o barrier pipe is 25m long which is much more than I need.

    It's exactly the same product.
    The coiled stuff has a natural bend one way due to the coiling.
    The straight stuff does not have a natural bend due to - being straight.
    Bending around corners should make no difference as long as the radius of the bend is within specifications.
    If you're using it on hot water supply and the radius is too tight, the pipe can kink on itself.

    I've checked the spec for the bend radius (176mm) but wanted to double check it applied to the straight lengths too. Thanks.

    Can you get the plastic bend formers still?
    It's a plastic guide you clip onto the pipe and it will hold it at 90 degrees

    Out of interest I've found HEP2O & Polypipe pipe more flexible than JG.

    Also you can get someone makes in 6m straight lengths.
