"Great item, had to fit a towel radiator so had to change the valve to straight valves, I could not find 10mm valves at a sensible price so purchased 15mm valves and used these to step down to the 10mm pipe, so easy to use I just took out the standard 15mm olive put in this reducer, put the nut back onto the valve and hand tightened it, cut the old valve off the pipe slid on the new valve tightened it heard the click tightened it a bit more, great result no leaks."
"Used it to fit my free TRV thatt came with the radiator on promotion onto 10mm microbore on teh old system. You need to tighten until you hear teh click of teh parts separating and then use as a normal compression. No problems as yet. Worth having a few in a toolbox."
"Excellent alternative to end feed reducers. I always ptfe and boss white these well as an extra precaution. They come in one piece rather than 3 so you can't loose part if it I the toolbox like with some reducing sets."
"After purchasing reducing sets from a local plumbers merchant for 3 radiators and having every one leak when I filled the system, I got these and having used them several times before I wasn't surprised when these performed perfectly with no leaks, first time."
"I'd been put off using these by the local plumbers merchant, difficult to use, leaks etc. Nothing could be further from the truth, worked first time, no leaks and easy to fit. Glad I decided to try them for myself. Tip, I put plenty of LSX on the joint just to be sure."
"Such a small item to save time and money. Use in a compression fitting, in place of the olive, to reduce the pipe size from 15mm to 10mm for radiator valves or similar. So often trying to find a 10mm TVR is an expensive task, with the reducing sets inxpensive 15mm valves can be used. I have used them with both copper and plastic pipe (with inserts) no problems and no leaks."
"Out of the 12 bought to change 10mm pipe to fit 15mm radiator valves, only 1 failed. This was most likely due to the poor condition of the pipe. Was a lot easier than changing all the pipes! now all my radiators have the same TRV."
"A great way to convert 15mm fittings to take a 10mm pipe and half a dozen of these in the box means I don't have to worry about carrying 10mm fittings at all. They come in 1 piece, but 'snap' into two on tightening up to crimp the pipe
I use them mainly with TRV's, but be careful with SKU 32130 as the pipe entry is not very deep and it is very difficult to get enough threads on to tighten it up.
TIP: use the nut and reducing set with a deeper fitting to 'crimp' the reducer onto the pipe first."
