Why Does Roger Hate Push Fit Waste Pipe?

📪 Ask Skill Builder: http://skill-builder.uk/send

Roger looks at some troublesome push-fit pipework in a bathroom.

Here’s our message from Mike:

Love watching your channel. We are just renovating our bathroom.

We’ve been removing as much as we can, but this morning I noticed a leak coming through the kitchen ceiling.

Now, the bathroom sink was used and I think I found the issue. Looks like a fractured waste pipe.

The house is circa 1997/1998 and the plastic pipes feel very degraded.

Should I work on the basis that all plastic waste pipes should be replaced to prevent future issues like this?

Best Regards, Mike
