makes a hard job easy
Old 8mm micro radiator valve had been overtightened in the past and was cracked so needed changing it started to leak very slightly. I searched the internet and came accross this, I was told all plumbers use this product. I cut the sleeve to the size I needed, put the tie wrap on plus some tape and a bit of kitched roll round the botton to stop gas leaking. Waited 5 mins then turned valve on !!!! No water so I cut pipe with screwfix cutter Â£2.88 put new rad valve on tightened up job done.
This is a brilliant product saves draining system and the expensive cost of a plumber just have everything near just in case until you gain confidence, think it through before starting, I got a 8mm isolation valve just in case and did not need it. Well done screw fix

Freeze pipes with confidence
I have used these kits several times to replace TRV's that have seized up; rather than draining the system and it has worked 100% first time everytime. I am always sightly cautious and make sure everything is to hand ready to go; jointing paste in place etc, just in case there is a need to rush but I have never had that panic moment when the ice plug goes - so far. The only problem is how much to use in each jacket when doing 2 pipes at the same time but usually count to 10 in each then repeat until it is all used up or comes out the sides.

Very easy product to use.
Simple product to use, just make sure your boiler is turn off and cooled.
I used it on 10mm copper pipe both vertical and Horizontal both worked a treat. do recommend using scales to weigh your can.
