    Default Can't get it off

    Hello,

    I am remodellng my bathroom and someone already replaced a pipe to the shower head with a compression fitting I have never seen before.
    I am trying to get it off but can't figure out how.
    Any help on this?

    Thank you

    Push the plastic towards the fitting. An adjustable wrench helps.

    Got it. Thank you.

    Who would use a fitting like this inside a wall?

    J hooks are a plastic pipe hanger that would slide over the pipe and push the plastic toward the fitting to release it.

    I already replaced it with a good old solder one.
    I am not a big fan of these compression fitting.

    They used that fitting because it was fast and easy, NOT cheaper or better.
