Works every time

"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.

"Great stuff, I use it all the time now on olives, no more tiny leaks. Small tin, but you only need a little bit each time, so it will last for ages."

Plumb like a pro!

"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!"

"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."

Great product
14 Sep 2008
By
, Accrington
"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
, 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."

"When you've got a HW cylinder or rad valves to change, go get some of this and some PTFE. You'll be glad you did. Saves a return visit for that drip."

Fernox say use something else
5 Dec 2012
By
, Colchester
"I had some radiator valves in my home which were old, once id taken the rad off to decorate and put it back on the joints to the valve leaked. I got this product thinking it was the right stuff, however when i tried to apply it to the make thread of the joint it just doesnt adhere to the thread and rolls up into a ball like play-dough. I called the 0845 number on the tin for the tech support line and they told me "yes thats the properties of this product" I said "what can I do?" they said "use something else, try our LSX one".
I managed to get some of it on in the end, I cleaned the thread with white spirit and dried it and then it seemed to adhere, but not very well.
Maybe I was just the unlucky one a?"
