"I've been struggling with cold water pressure through a mixer shower making the shower run cold. i fitted this to the incoming mains cold water, and have turned it right down. easy enough to fit, but i'm using 15mm plastic pipework and you need to make sure it's very tight. i have a slight leak, but i have a bowl under it. it has certainly balanced out the pressure better.
I think i'll have to replace the plastic pipe with copper when i have more free time."
"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!"
