    Hi All. I hope you're well.

    I need a bit of advice. Someone is having their engineered floor replaced which was installed 20yrs ago with underfloor heating. As the flooring people were taking up the old board they noticed a pipe came up with it. It has had a nail through it for 20yrs with no leak. Quite amazing really.

    Any way, I need a part that will fix it tomorrow as the new floor is basically installed and ready for sanding and staining for new people to move in on Tuesday.

    Problem is, it takes 2-3 days for the parts from Wolesey and I don't know anyone else that stocks them

    Anyone know who will have these in stock?

    These are the parts needed: uponor 1006641, uponor 1065290

    Any guidance would be great.

    Cheers

    Now a uf company said this would work... 20mm x 20mm Compression Coupling

    But, I asked uponor and they said this...Unfortunately not as it is for MLC pipes and not PEX pipes.

    Problem is it's old these days it's 16mm

    If the wall is 2mm thick which I can see it being they will work

    Pressure test after repair

    It says 20 x 2mm on the side of pipe in the picture.

    Scary though burying it when Uponor say no. If it goes wrong it is costly
