Rated 1 out of 5Â by Woodlar Not a good choice!!
Fitted in a customers bathroom towel rail with 7 day timer controlling it 2hr at a time twice a day . After about six weeks the internal thermo stat failed causing the element to overheat and damage the towel rail blowing the lock sheild off the pipe work and flooding the bathroom if i could give it 0 stars I would . You have been warned.

Easy to fit and works well. However, electrical cord is quite short. Would be better if it was 1.5 meters long.
Cannot comment on reliability as I have only fitted the element two days ago.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Jason27 flawed elbow design
The elbow replaces a 1/2" BSP stem where the valve has 360deg freedom. The elbow is a O ring design where the final inlet alignment cannot guarantee an O ring seal.
No wonder two of the reviews refer to leaks. The instructions say (in red) "Always use PTFE tape ... do not JUST (my emphasis) rely on the O ring seal.
That is nonsense, a design should either be PTFE or O ring. I have never had a 1/2" BSP O ring seal blanking plug or bleed valve leak.
So I used liquid PTFE in preference to tape. No leaks and a hot towel rail.

Great value, have fitted 1 of these and have another one to fit, no leaks here... guess I plumbed it in properly. Do not forget to get the elbow with your T if you want it symmetrical.
