Rated 1 out of 5Â by tone300 Warning! Inspect on purchase
I have previously purchased many of these with no problem but this time i bought 6 and 3 were faulty.... 2 of the unions that screw into the radiators had the threads machined all the way up to the nut so it was impossible to tighten fully into the rad thus causing leaks. The third had the thread inside the nut over machined and had no flange left on it so impossible to use also. One of the good ones also is incredibly tight and squeaks when you open or close the valve. so really only 2 out of 6 were good. This cost me a couple of hours and ended up draining part of the system again to cure the problems that these poorly made parts had caused. If I buy these again I will inspect each one closely before leaving the shop and certainly before installing them.

It's a very cheap chrome value with two white plastic caps. Have used loads of them now. I always put ptfe over the olive just to be sure of a good seal though. You can't go wrong with these.

Would rather use Pegler or similar, but customer wanted cheap so customer got cheap!
Cannot comment on reliability.

Used the valves caps only as these are cheaper than ordering separately, also only required 3 and not 4 (as these are sold in pairs). Will keep the valves as spares.
