"Purchased two of these as was having a new kitchen sink fitted and wanted ease to isolate the water supply should the need arise rather than using the slotted screw type isolators. In case of a future problem no need to hunt for a screw driver and torch then search for the screw slot itself. Just a simple manual quarter turn of the lever is needed - also wont need to clear out 100 items normally stored until the kitchen sink. Unable to really comment on reliability as these have only just been fitted but according to other reviews they appear to have a good reliability record."
"Bought two of these for a new utility room installation on the strength of other good reviews here. As others have said the valves look to be well made and of course the main bonus is that they are full bore. Will give them a bit of time to check reliability and if all goes well I'll be changing all my ageing gate valves for these little beauties. (Most of which are seized open)."
