Fernox Leak Sealer
12 Oct 2011
By CLDomestics

" This product performs excellently for jointing BSP fittings as well as sealing 'old' weaping joints.
A must have for all tool boxes!
It is silicone based but the fittings are watertight immediately so you do not need to allow time for the paste to cure.
NOT FOR USE ON GAS FITTINGS. "

Does what you hope it can...

" Fernox make great quality products and I've used a variety for over 32 years. Their LS-X sealant has been a godsend over the years and provided a leakproof seal throughout numerous plumbing jobs. The ability to coat some bandage and then wrap it around a leaking pipe (as per instructions) allowed me to delay one repair until a more convenient time and better access. Joints can be released quite easily and the sealant cleaned off with your fingernails and a rub of a cloth. Does what you need and want it to. "

Total plumbing godsend
19 Mar 2015
By Regrev
, Bath
" If you've ever faffed about with compression joints that keep dripping no matter how much ptfe tape you use or how much you check washers and tighten, tighten, tighten... Then you need this stuff. Discovered it during last house refurb and use it now on EVERY plumbing joint - literally every time something with a thread needs connecting. Taps onto flexible hoses (smear a little around the thread), copper pipe compression joints (smear a little on the olive). Not had ONE leak. Always works to a drip free joint FIRST time. Magic. (I prefer to leave them to next day to test – just to be sure it's all gone off properly.) Dries to a firm rubbery compound that peels away so you can make things nice and clean (if they're on show) OR if you need to take something apart and do it again it's not stuck fast. Love it. "

Super Duper Joint Sealer
25 Feb 2015
By chestnutfarmer
, Norfolk
" I've been using this for years, for plumbing and heating installations. I have only used it as a "belt and braces" sealant on threaded and compression/union type plumbing fittings, and have not had a single joint leak since I started using it. On threaded joints (i.e: radiator/valve etc) I still use PTFE tape and then a smear of LS-X. On compression fittings I put a smear of LS-X around the olive before assembling the joint. If you need to disconnect the joints later then no problem, the cured LS-X just peels off, and you can reassemble again without problem. Brilliant stuff, any excess just wipes off with rag, leaves a clean joint. It can apparently be used to stop leaks without disassembling, but I have not tried this so cannot comment. Lasts a long time, but you must replace the cap immediately to stop it curing in the tube "

A must for compression joints
19 Feb 2015
By FinalFix
, Cambridge
" I started using LS-X some years ago and can say that it gives me that feel-good-factor when using compression fittings - especially on older pipework. Gone are the days of wrapping PTFE tape round olives that are weeping!!! I use LS-X ALWAYS and I have never had a fitting even bead a drop of water AND it is safe for drinking water .. RESULT!!! "

" Fernox LS-X is a great product to have in your toolbox to fix leaks and seal water pipes etc. The instructions are good and the product is easy to use. I would recommend still using with PTFE tape to seal joints etc to give an instant fix but Im sure on its own given reasonable time to cure it can do the job "

liquid gel transformation

By Brownsox

" Used it to seal around replacement washer leading from cold water tank. The original hole I think had been drilled a little too large, but the gel was easy to apply and set quite quickly. No leaks so far!
Remember to put the cap back on promptly

" i always keep a tube or 3 in the van excellent product and has not failed yet on stopping weeping joints on old compression fittings however a pro to a con is that its very quick to cure which is good for sealing the leak but also ends up curing in the tube if you dont get the cap on quickly "
