When old kitchen units are removed, there may be revealed a pipe or a soldered joint leaking. Or perhaps someone put a nail or screw into the undetected pipe – accidents do happen to even the best kitchen-fitters.
And, the fitter or householders may not have the plumbing skills to fix it.
The water then has to be turned off until a plumber can attend, and the customer will not be happy because they will have no water for the duration.
And then there is collateral damage – a water leak on Formica or chip board material can make the wood bubble, which is the last thing wanted on a new install.
The LeakMate tool is a true mate when you really need it most and you do not need years of experience to get out of trouble.
This is a reusable tool that any skilled or unskilled person can use quickly and easily to stop various types of leaks on all common household pipe sizes 10mm, 15mm and 22mm.
It even works on soldered copper fittings and plastic pipe. It is an easy-to-use temporary fix to allow work to continue and water to flow until a qualified plumber gets there.
It is possible to fit it without physically touching the pipe, which is extremely useful if working on hot water pipes or if there is an electrical charge running down the pipe. No other tools are required in order to fit the LeakMate and water does not need to be turned off or drain the system down.
The tool is supplied with reusable sized seals that have a recessed step moulded to fit copper fittings.
LeakMate also seals split pipes and holed pipes whether plastic or copper up to 10-bar pressure.
