Great little tool. Needed to remove 2 15 mm well tightened compression olives on very short tails supplying a shower mixer valve. Tool removed both olives in seconds - a cracking little gadget. Really pleased with it. Will not get too much use I guess but it does a great job.

This is a good tool if you need to remove olives from pipes that have been installed by a sensible plumber.
It really falls down when someone has really cracked the torque and caused the pipe to deform. Rothenberger make a better tool in the form of an olive splitter. This has the added benefit of taking any size of pipe from 15mm up and is very easy to use.
If the installer lacked a stetson and spurs then this will be okay for you, unless you need to do a 28mm.
For my problem olives this other tool was a better bet and easier to use. Even for one pipe that the fitter had not cut perfectly square. Screwfix don't stock it and the big stores want about Â£34 but you can shop around. Mine was Â£20 at an auction...
