I have never used this type of kit before. I needed to change a valve at one end of a radiator. I didn't want to drain the whole system down for about 15 mins works.
I only used one of the sleeves as I managed to close the valve at the other end. The pipes were vertical and the sleeve was too long so I cut it down by about 40mm. Using the extra bit of foam supplied to pack it out for a 15mm pipe used the zip tie to hold it in place. I pushed the tube down as low as I could get it and found that if I pushed the trigger down in bursts it was more efficient at cooling. I felt the bit of copper pipe exposed and it was cool. After the recommended 5 mins it was a lot colder, so i went for it and undone the fittings after a few dribbles of water the wife put her finger over the end of the radiator (she's good at things like that) to save the radiator emptying onto the floor. The valve was removed and new one fitted. I was expecting loads of water to drain out of the radiator in total about half a mug was all that came out. Good team work, job done in 10 mins. The product is a bit expensive but I have enough to do it again. Next time i would weigh the can so i could gauge if I used half of the tin.
Brill product follow the instructions to the letter, i would definitely recommend it and use again for this type of job.

Does the job well but at a cost. Shame replacement cylinders, rather than whole kits, are not stocked.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jonekins Best Pipe Freeze kit used
This was just the kit needed to freeze 2 central heating pipes that required re-routing".
I only needed to use one sleeve cut in half, as they are reusable (you need some extra ty-wraps to use again).
I only required half a can of freeze spray to freeze 2 x 15mm pipes.
the best bit is i still have enough to use for another job when needed, very good value for money :)
