"...how easy it was to repair my leaking pipe with this. Had a split water pipe outdoors following recent freeze, was concerned at prospect (& cost) of getting a plumber out to fix it, so thought I would have a go myself. Switched off water at the stopcock, hacked out the offending section of pipe, filed down the 2 ends to make sure they wouldn't shred the seals in the new fitting, and pushed it on. Job's a good 'un, all done for under a fiver and in about half an hour!"
"These are very quick and easy to use and I will definitely use again. One thing to watch out for is to make sure you push it all the way in first time as when I took one off to reposition, the o ring became dislodged - although they're not too difficult to put back in."
