Rated 1 out of 5Â by OGCC The kit FAILS the test!
I should have read the following reviews first but bought from the catalogue. I set the kit up on a bench with a 2m length of new soil pipe, pressurised to 100mm and watched the level fall!
If the tube from the rubber bulb was clamped, it held the pressure. Conclusion: The valve in the rubber bulb leaks which is not surprising at such low pressure and a clamp should be included to isolate the bulb at this price for a kit of rubber tubing. Returned it to Screwfix who apologised and refunded me with no problem. Good service from the Norwich South branch.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by johnburg Confirm, mine leaked as well!
I bought this and set it all up, only to find that the pressure does not remain constant. I also set it up on a short length of pipe with the same result!
I wish I had read the previous review before I purchased it, i too wonder if Building Control would accept the test on this basis!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Billious It Leaks!
I bought this kit in august last year and only came to use it for the first time today 18 May.
Imagine my frustration when I found that the air leaks back through the rubber bulb!
I have to keep my thumb over the end of the rubber bulb in order to do a test.
The building regulations officer is not going to accept any test that I do with this kit.
