Doing a bit of a plumbing job and have run out of Red PER can I use the Blue instead, is it made the same but just a differant colour?
Its for some extra radiators I am fitting, I only need about 4mts so don't really want to buy 25mts. Cheers

I often do it with no probs.
Peake will no doubt be aghast.

Were there different coloured copper pipes?

No, but then copper never had additives in it that might be leached out with hot water.

To be honest however, I would be very surprised if both coloured PER pipes have not been safely tested to well above 70 degrees C. A quick check on the safety data sheet for PER pipes should confirm.
