Excellent valve
13 Jan 2014
By TimSussex
, West Sussex
"I have used these on several occasions, mainly as isolators for taps and toilets. So far I have found them reliable. I prefer them to the screwdriver slot type as, in an emergency, anyone can quickly turn them off without having to go and find a screwdriver of the right size - particularly important for tenants in a rental property."

"I find these better because of the small handle fitted, however when isolated and full pressure on one side of the valve they can be hard to turn."

"I have used these to isolate for basin taps with flexible connections and they work very well. Good quality and appear very well made. I prefer to use these rather than standard ball valve with slotted turn for ease of use."

"I always put 2 in any new pipework I do - if one locks up you have the second to use. at this price why not, not worth the hassle of turning the mains off. or draining the system"

Better than handleless types
16 May 2010
By SkillissimoMarco
, Bath. Somerset
"I have used with frequent failure, water leaks from the slot , the screwdiver slotted service valves over the years. I find these handled ones reliable and of course more user friendly as no screwdriver required to operate. Individually packed ensures nuts and olives don`t get lost."

Poor Quality Isolation Valve
20 Jul 2012
By ThPlumba
, South Manchester
"I have used many of these valves over the years. They used to represent excellent value for money, but more recently the quality has gone downhill big-style. They don't always switch off the supply as they are supposed to, and I have had many callbacks where I have had to change them because they don't work. The compression fittings are also now of very poor quality, and particularly unsuitable if using with plastic pipework.
Quite frankly you really do get what you pay for and it's not worth the hassle. I have stopped using them in favour of Conex 15mm Isolating Valves (Product Code: 78891) or 15mm Full Bore Levers (Product Code: 80413) dependant on the application.
Shame really - they used to be quite good, but now represent a poor investment. AVOID."
