" I use this on every compression or threaded joint now, it just works.
Brilliant if you have to re use an old compression joint, smear a bit on the olive and male threads and bobs your uncle. Great.

Plumb like a pro!
3 Dec 2012
By fogster

" Fantastic jointing compound for use over the top of olives in compression fittings (not to be used under the olive though as apparently it can cause the olive to slip). A thick paste that you spread over an olive prior to assembling the compression fitting - makes it much easier to avoid any seepage on the joint. I've read that true pros use this stuff (rather than PTFE tape) on compression fittings and it really is superb. This stuff is nice and thick so doesn't run off the joint, and is suitable for drinking water fittings too.
I actually had a leaking air bleed valve on a new Stelrad radiator - PTFE tape on the bleed screw was a nightmare so I tried a splodge of this - worked a treat until I got a replacement valve!
Recommended - just need to learn to solder next! "

gooey white stuff

" Never suffered from leaking compression joints when served by Thames or Bristol water, plenty of Calcium Carbonate+ just used PTFE tape. Northumberland water appears to have very little dissolved salts.Much to my surprise found compressions always had tiny amount of seepage, used water Hawk no problems at all, will use it all the time now.

By Bungall

" Great product. Tin comes in a sealed bag with a bit of grease in it to prevent rust. Thought the product had leaked into bag so tried to get it changed however was told they were all the same. Have used it to reseal taps on sink and bath. Installed first time and not had a single leak. "

DOES WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN
16 Mar 2013
By BillDL
, Hamilton
" I found this a little too thick to smear onto pipes and get it to stay there in a uniform thin coat, but this may be because I was working in an unheated room in Winter and the paste was cold and thick. Perhaps warming it up next to a radiator for a while might have helped to make it more "smearable". The joints have remained leak free and I am confident that they will remain that way having used this product. "
