15mm x Â½" Straight Service Valve
This product is likely to come apart when first used. After reading previous reviews, I checked the insert was suitably tightened, however, by the time I nipped it up it had managed to loosen itself. The first time you notice this is when you open the valve and spray water all over the room. Clearly there is a manufacturing/assembly issue with this product. There is an alternative Conex available from Screwfix, but unfortunately it is shorter and not a direct replacement.

Be warned, The valves are not fully assembled. The shaft on all 4 packs I purchased were loose. I hadn't notice until filling the system, Had to remove and tighten every one of the shafts .
I Don't expect to have too tighten a machined thread on the shaft. This should have been completed before leaving the factory. Friday afternoon job. 3/8 Allen key required.

I have used this valve twice and like a previous reviewer found that the half inch connection unscrews and causes a leak. I had forgotten that this happens but will not buy it again.

Beware this valve!.
Bought this to replace a worn service valve while doing some repair work to toilet. That went all fine. Put this on, what a piece of junk!. Pulls out the 1/2 inch connector that goes into the valve body when you tighten bolts. Sprayed water all over place when I put water back on to test.
Only buy this if you want to flood yours or a customers house out!.
You have been warned.
