Rated 2 out of 5Â by PKD1 Water Level
The tube is to thin and kinks also the end caps leak.
It did work ok but you had to keep on untwisting the tube.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by HaddingtonDIYer Exceptionally poor product
I bought this when I broke my 'old school' Holland water level. While it will do its job (is there any measuring tool simpler than a water level?), the overall product was exceptionally poor in build quality and materials. The moulding of the plastic end/vent caps were below Christmas cracker standard. They are not identical (a smaller one for the plastic tube and a larger one for the sealing cap). On my level one measuring tube had the caps fitter the wrong way round - so when in use the scale was up side down. The plastic measuring tube had a printed scale but on my level half the printing was missing on one tube. The plastic tube was long and flexible which was good but so thin it constantly kinked which is useless as it makes the reading unreliable. In the end I junked it and repaired my Holland level. Identical cheap water levels seem to be available on online auction sites for 1/3 of the price. This is the first time I have been really disappointed with Screwfix; They can surely do better.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by BromptonMaster Worst product
I bought this to help me to mark leveling points in my workshop. No instructions given but I had a basic idea how it works, filled the tube with water and went to use it. Very slow at stabilizing only to find the tube keep getting kinks. Took it back and got a refund..

Rated 1 out of 5Â by NoTryNoDo Only fit for a pound shop
This item belongs in a pound shop not Screwfix.
I have bought many items of excellent value and quality from Screwfix but this meets neither of these two criteria.
There was no instructions included which was not a problem for me as I was aware of what I was purchasing and how it worked but this would be a serious failure for any one without prior knowledge.
The main fault with this product is the plastic tubing which has such a thin wall thickens that has been pressurised and the ends sealed to give the impression of a much more solid product.
The tube is almost impossible to use and fill due to it twisting and collapsing.
Would not recommend this item under any circumstances.
