"These are the only service valves I fit now as the cheaper ones can eventually leak around the adjusting screw. They are full bore so no loss of flow and I often fit the tap/toilet flexi straight onto them which also enables you to adjust flow especially on mains pressure and between hot and cold. They are slightly larger in diameter than the cheap ones so allow a bit more space between the pipe centres/brackets. A reliable piece of fit and forget kit."
"Excellent piece of equipment. I have used a number of these valves in the past and never had a problem. As I renovate my property I am replacing all the old service valves with these valves. Good value for money."
"I purchased this isolating valve as I was installing a new toilet that didn't have an existing isolating valve on the water feed. It seems very solid for the price, with an easy to turn valve. I am very pleased with it so far. Would recommend for any purpose where 15mm full bore valve is required. I have not rated performance or reliability high as it has only been in for 3 days. I find that at least a year is needed before evaluating fully."
"Needed an isolating valve for my shower quickly. This fitted the bill. Picked one up from my local Screwfix store and it was fitted in minutes. Total time from start of search to buying and fitting? 50 minutes! Fantastic."
"This full bore isolation valve was bought to replace a leaky hot water valve under the kitchen sink. Not only did it save the kitchen cupboard, the hot water now comes out much faster due to less restriction. A good idea if fitting new taps to gravity fed systems. 10/10"
"Reduced flow isolators seem to be the norm. As well as restricting the flow, they tend to leak at the screw hole if they haven't been touched for a while. This defeats the purpose on both fronts. This full bore valve looks of better construction and feels "tight" and well engineered when the isolating screw is activated. I know they cost a bit more but are well worth it."
"Perfect solution for connections to showers where any restriction in flow could affect the performance. Very positive shut-off and efficient compression fittings at a very competitive price. Definitely the solution!
(Bank Holiday store opening was a bonus which meant the work could progress early)"
"I needed to isolate a section of the central heating to move some rads. So I put two of these on the flow and return of the heating so I can shut off that section without completely draining down. Worked perfectly with the freezer kit."
"This isolator may cost a couple of pound more than a small bore isolator, but it is worth the money. Slightly longer with a larger diameter but not a problem. Build quality looks and feels good, not had it long enough to comment on reliability. Ideal for pipes to the bath taps and shower where restricted flow may cause problems."
"For the sake of a few quid I can't understand why anyone would buy the cheaper non-full bore over these! If you have the two different types side by side and you open them up you can see just how much flow of water you are gaining by using full bore.
Unlike the more expensive Pegler ones with coloured handles, these come with Copper Olives and so can be fitted on Speedfit tubes.
It would be nice to have the choice of these with turn handles rather than the screw turn."
