Straight TRV 15mm
5 Mar 2015
By

" I`m an amateur DIY`er not experienced in changing radiators, valves or anything to do with plumbing.
These are easy to install once system is drained down and look far better than the old white plastic ones used when the heating was installed.
Very pleased with the modern look of the valve.

Nice look for the price

" Complements the 1100x600 curved chrome towel rail very nicely. Used straight fixings like this one as pipes coming up from the floor straight into the bottom of the radiator.
Feels like the chrome finish might wear off a bit with heavy use over time, but I don't intend to be adjusting it all that often so it should retain its finish in my case. "

" Looks the part with chrome tails and radiator. Decent price too. Bi-directional, makes life so much easier.
Thing to watch is flaking chrome, might have been scratched or bad mould. Would recommend buying in person so you can check before hand. "

" The good thing about this valve is that it is cheap. The numbers are impossible to read so customers would have a job setting it. Feels cheap. Looks as though other valve heads could be used so that might be in its favour. Wouldn't buy again. "

Plastic body fails

" I guess you get what you pay for. I installed one of these on a chrome towel radiator to give a coordinated look. It functioned OK as a TRV for a couple of years but eventually the chrome effect plastic body just became brittle and failed. The plastic broke around the barbed fingers holding the TRV body onto the valve, under the locking ring, which I assume is the area of greatest stress and most affected by temperature cycles. A solid brass/chrome valve would have been a better choice as I now have to go out and buy one anyway and go through the hassle of draining and replacing. "

" These are chrome coated plastic valves. Look better in the photo than in real life.
Easy to install but the head seems a bit too tight when turning. The setting indicator is not easy to read.
Overall seem to do the job. "

" These work as TRV's but they do not have an "expensive" feel to them. The TRV's are just cheap chrome coated plastic. Operation was rather tight, and the setting indication on the TRV is not easy to read. "
