No Nonsense External Leak Seal
2 Mar 2015
By
, London
" Great buy, almost half the price of other branded products. It worked really well when dealing with a radiator header tank. It was no where near as smelly as other brands and when working in a closed in roof space with no ventilation this proved a real bonus. It was also easier to apply and tool than other products. Will definitely buy and use again. Have give 3 start for reliability as I have only just put it on, otherwise a 5 star product. "

" I use this instead of/as well as PTFE tape and it does the job well. It is 60% of the price of the brand name product, but 100% the same. "

, Halifax, West Yorks
" I've been using the more expensive Fernox LS-X version of this product for a while now with excellent results and decided to buy a tube of the cheaper stuff to see if it was any different. I can confidently say that there isn't any difference apart from the price - a lot cheaper! Same performance, no problems apart from the tube drying up if you leave the top off for a while, same as the expensive stuff. "

No Nonsense External Leak Seal
23 May 2012
By
, Bromley
" Works well and better value then other brands.
Only criticism is the cap, which is not really man enough for the job - has a tendency to split and allow the sealant to go off in the tube.

THIS IS A JOINT SEALER
24 Jan 2015
By
, Cheshire
" 'External leak sealer' is misleading. This is a joint sealer, for compression or threaded fittings. I can see I would use this if I had a compression fitting which was weeping and I couldn't get it any tighter. In fact, the best name for this would be 'Small Tube of Clear Silicone Sealant' which is basically what it is.
I bought this for a temporary fix on a pin-hole radiator leak which it was totally unsuitable for. Isn't that an 'external leak'? I actually needed some Araldite. "

No Good Leak sealant
21 Nov 2014
By
, Motherwell
" No Nonsense External Leak Sealer did not seal the leak from the radiator valve connection. It did not adhere to a wet surface as claimed and was no better than ordinary silicone sealant, a large tube of which is much cheaper.
Managed to seal leak using self amalgamating tape.

Doesn't stop leaks
8 Dec 2015
By
, Nottingham
" This isn't a great product. Had a leaking radiator tail, and this doesn't stick the the radiator enamel very well and thus didn't stop the leak. Removed the dried silicone to try again, and the whole tube had gone off in 3 hours despite me putting the lid back on..
Pity, because normally no nonsense stuff is great. You're better off buying a tube of normal sealant!

Save your Money, Doesn't Work
19 Jan 2015
By
, Chorley
" I bought this for a tiny leak on a radiator valve. The product looks and smells exactly like ordinary clear silicone sealant. The leak was from the 12mm micro-bore joint into the valve. I tried several attempts but it just kept leaking, only a tiny drop every five minutes but the sealant couldn't stop it. Looks like a full drain down and new valve/pipe is the only solution. Don't waste your money! "
