Given the damage caused by a pipe joint failure, and the fact that the supplier would be liable if it was due to the product, if push fit plumbing joints were not very reliable, then nobody would stoc ...

If you've actually damaged the pipe, or if you want to fit a narrower radiator, it's not a major issue to extend ...
