These valves leak from the grub screw and let in air to the central heating system. The are also very difficult to fit without leaking from the main nut. I am now removing mine to fit better quality. They are very cheap in price so its possibly to be expected. Buy cheap buy twice and all that

As per previous posts I've just had a leak from the valve when isolating the pump, and the valve has only be installed for two weeks. It only leaked a small amount and soon stopped, but that doesn't bode well for the future.
And even worse, when turning the valve with a wide bladed screwdriver, one lug of the screw sheared off.
I'm replacing them with a pair of pegler valves.

Fitted these just over a year ago and i have recently discovered that one of them is leaking fron around the valve stem. They have only been turned on and off once when fitted, so its not even like they have worn!

Had a pair of these isolation values in situ for about 5yrs when the pump failed. I was just about able to shut off the values but after replacing the pump trying to open the values one stem broke in two and water started leaking out. There's a fundamental design flaw in the way these are constructed in that to turn the value you need to put pressure on the slot, which causes it stress fracture.
Don't be fooled by the cheap price, it's not worth the hassle of having to drain down the system to replace them, what should have been a 30mins turned into a 3h job... go for the peglars
