Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kestral Simple & Effective
Extremely simple to fit and its operation is very very effective. Effectively putting the inaccesable house stopcock from the back of the cupboard to above the work surface. Makes it very easy to 'switch off' the water when going away or in emergencies.

Very easy to fit and now means that do not have to drag washing machine out to get access to stop cock. Also ideal for anyone who struggles to get to or turn stopcock

Rated 5 out of 5Â by 12sixC Simple to fit. Great idea
Very simple to fit, just cut out a section of pipe and push it on then connect the switch. Great product, has allowed me to move the mains water isolation valve and a mess of pipe work under the house and have the switch in the house.
Pricey compared to just a valve or even the non remote option but worth it for the ability to put messy plumbing and valve out of site rather than in the middle of my kitchen but still have the ability to shut off the water from inside.
One thing I will say is the sticky patch for the switch is very good at its job, so make sure you are certain on your switch position before you stick it on.
Simple and reliable Screwfix next day order in store.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by geoff2 Only for short term isolation
This is an excellent product for remote isolation of the water supply for emergencies and short maintenance periods. However, the manufacturers say its remote feature should not be used for extended periods of isolation - the lockdown switch on the top of the valve should be used instead. This means that if you are going to be away from home for a week or two in the winter you still need to get to the valve even if it is in a difficult position. This negates the advantage of the remote feature, so I used a Pegler ball valve (product code 18343) instead - much cheaper.
