Small purchase but a massive !
I am delighted with this product, it does exactly what it says it will do, no more leaking hose, it has saved me a lot of money as I do not have to buy a new carpet washer, thank you Screwfix for recommending this to me, I am very happy to recommend it to anyone who needs waterproof tape.

Does what it says on the label
Good value for money from Screwfix, I have paid much more for the same product from other suppliers. It turns into a piece of solid but flexible rubber once you have wrapped it around something; i.e. a pipe join you want to seal. It only sticks to itself, so don't expect it to stick to anything else. Just don't expect miracles, it can't fix a leak that's under any pressure.
It is very useful for sealing electrical cable entry points, as you can build up as much or little as is needed to effect a seal. I used it to hold a pipe in place on a sink trap in my caravan.

self amalgamating tape
screfix used to sell a much shorter but better tape.
the new 10m one is less flexible and more brittle.
after using it in a diy project to seal some pvc pipe connections, i found that the upper layers of the seal made with the tape, started tearing and cutting.
i suspect screwfix are selling a cheaper product hoping to give better value for money for the customers, but i wish they go back to the older one.
