Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drip drip...stop! Well if living in a 1930's home isn't bad enough, dealing with lead pipes is even worse. Luckily the leak was under the sink and the end of the line for the lead which was sweated onto copper and leaked sloooooowly until, Friday when it upped the pace, maybe because it got close to Valentine's Day, it started leaking 10ltrs/hr. I ordered this part and plumber sorted it. Just make sure you really tighten it up to the lead pipe otherwise it'll seep through or maybe not, but it did in my case. Jobs a good un.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid piece of kit I had a length of mains lead pipe that ran to an old outside wc that I needed to cap off. I used a 15mm blanking end on the output side. Assembled that with PTFE tape first and PTFE'd the lead end of the connection at the same time. Mains off then cut the lead pipe as straight as I could. Trimmed down pipe slowly & carefully with a Stanley knife then sandpapered it smooth. Instruction sheet is abysmal, a kids crayon sketch would be more useful. When you are rushing the assembly falls apart and you are left wondering what the correct sequence is for all the parts. The order is nut on lead pipe, followed by black washer then then T shaped brass olive, fat end towards the lead pipe. Tighten it, plus a bit more and you should have a rock solid leak free connection. Since the water main was replaced I have very high pressure and I half expected the fitting to fly off - it didn't and not a drop of water leaking from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier than I thought I was a bit apprehensive about taking out some of the old lead piping in our mid 1930's house. Having started the rebuild of our bathroom there was no way around it. This was by far one of the easiest bit of plumbing I have done: 1 shut off the mains and drain pipework by opening all taps until it stops dripping out 2 cut through the lead pipe with a saw - I used my sawzall with a fine cutting blade for wood 3 trim end of pipe and deburr 4 put large brass nut, olive and rubber seal onto lead pipe 5 connect lead lock (just like any compression fitting) and tighten and then carry on the plumbing with copper on the other side of the fitting. It was an immediate fit. I think it is recommended to let the water run for a while before use after touching old lead plumbing, which I did for about 10 minutes. BTW, to ensure that this was the right fitting I first used a piece of paper to measure the circumference and then divided this by 3.1415. All in all I am very happy to recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lead lock I used two of those to cap two lead pipes, which were in good condition with a diameter of exactly 0.918". I have high pressure and none of them are leaking. Installation was easy, but be sure to put the metal ring in the correct direction. I was not necessary very clear on the instruction. This seems of better quality than other lead locks I have seen sold in other shops, which can adapt to various sizes of lead pipes. I cannot comment on how they perform if the pipe is not exactly of the recommended diameter.

The outside diameter of the lead pipe is 19.2mm will this coupler work on that diameter?

What variation i size of lead pipe does it cater for?

the pipe is about 100 years old.
Asked by: Mefedup
You can shave the outside of the lead pipe to fit as long as you don't reduce the wall thickness too much... Keep shaved surface as smooth as possible for best results. Use a sharp Stanley knife.
