"easy to fit to 20mm pipe. no problem to adjust the pressure, and the gauge was accurate. Don't know re reliability just fitted, will wait and see, but looked good quality and back by Screwfix guarantee, will be a piece of mind."
"I have used several of these now as a direct replacement in a block of flats. I have had no problems and first one has been in over 1 year now. Easy to fit, thread on pressure gauge needs lots of PTFE tape to fit tightly into valve but have not had any leaks."
"I was sceptical that a PRV at this price would actually work - but it does and very well. I use them for bidet showers and they very effectively reduce a 5 bar supply to 1 bar.
The pressure gauge is a nice touch and very useful for setting up. I don't particularly like the snap-off 22/15mm reducers but they do seal if you do them up really tight, some lubricant on the threads makes it easier.
I can't vouch for how well they would handle the larger flow if fitted to the rising main nor how reliable they are in the long term but I'm impressed so far ."
"Brought as a straight like for like replacement as the previous one had started to leak around the joint where the black upper case meets the body of the valve. Like previous comment the previous one was only a few years old so will be keeping an eye on this one. Bonus that it was easy to fit and no damage caused by the leak! Works well and easily adjusted to suit the pressure required."
"A compact PRV which is ideal for domestic installations where the mains pressure is above 5 bar. The preset (3 Bar) is perfect for drinking water taps and prevents splashing if the tap is turned full on. In a previous installation, the pressure gauge leaked slightly from the bod after some time in service."
"Seems to be good quality overall - casting and plating look ok. Factory preset to 3-Bar but relatively straightforward to adjust if required. Can't really comment on reliabilty as it's only been in a week!"
"Excellent bit of kit for the price. Easily fitted although you will need to use more care and effort to tighten when using the 22-15mm Olive fitting on 15mm pipe. Ensure you wire wool clean the pipe before fitting PRV. Easy to adjust to the pressure just follow the instructions given. Well satisfied and first time I have used this particular PRV."
"Fitting the PRV proved difficult, due to the force required to tighten fitting when using 15mm reducers. Although factory set to 3bar, gauge gives reading anywhere between 2 and 6 bar, which appears to be connected on the OUTLET side so not sure what's going on here."
"I've got two of these fitted and I've found they start to leak from the cap on the top after about 4 years. The cap has no seal, it just screws in and under constant water pressure it leaks. I've manged to stop it with PTFE tape for a few months, then it started again, so I sealed it with silicone but that only lasted a few weeks so I had to replace the whole valve. The second one is now leaking in the same way. I think the internal rubber diaphragm is failing but they don't seem to sell these separately, and the manufacturer doesn't respond to emails. If your vlave is out of site, then you could well have damp patch on the ceiling before you find out. Avoid if you can."
"The product itself represents excellent value. I have been trying to stop severe water hammer that occurred when the washing machine was changed from hot/cold fill to a new cold fill only machine. The problem is that the solenoid that controls the water flow is very harsh - it stops the water suddently causing "hammer". Having tried "Arrestors" which didn't work I thought I would try a PRV. Fitting itself is straightforward but I wish I had taken heed from other reviewers about the 22/15mm reducer. No matter what I have tried the water entry joint leaks. It is not a trickle but enough to be of concern. Next step is to replace by a 15mm to 22mm copper joint and use a 22mm olive. Why is there no learning from reviewers if a number have reported similar problems ?"
