The brand comes with matching bends, tees, straights & similar. These have a twist thread and a lip. They appear softer than the tube. To insert one into the other requires significant strength, KY Jelly, gloves, a very warm day ( when the tube is more like plastic than metal ) and an awful lot of cursing. Inserting the screw section is difficult, the lip close to impossible. Naturally, the screw on its own leaks. Use a different brand of connector ( the Australian ones ), works a bunch better. Use the Claber branded fittings on black hose pipe, works fine too. Use black hose pipe instead and no herculean effort, gloves, lube, & minimal cursing.
I vote this black pipe is unfit for purpose & wonder who in the Kingfisher group thought it was worth stocking. The latter should go find a job they are capable of doing.

Bit hard to manipulate to the design due to wanting to curl back up.
Very easy to fit spray nozzles. It’s hard pipe do a quick pilot hole with a drill. Fitted quickly and excellent does the job.
So happy. Staff were very helpful from Seasonal as was the customer service desk. Thanks B&Q.
