X-Treme Tape what a life saver

X-Treme Tape what a life saver

Dear LeakMate, Your X-treme tape product, what a life saver. I was so pleased to have purchased your product as the versatility is outstanding. Having encountering an issue with my car where steam was bellowing out from under the bonnet, I located the issue to a damaged top hose pipe. The pipe had worn and split over an inch in length. It was a late Saturday afternoon so I knew I wouldnt be able to obtain a replacement hose during the weekend. Knowing I would need use of the car I needed to either replace or repair. Thankfully I decided to use the LeakMate X-treme tape and it was the perfect solution all sorted within a matter of minutes allowing me to use the car for a number of days until replacement hose arrived. This is such an adaptable product, truly worth having in stock in any tool box. I will no longer consider this only as a useful plumbing kit but as an all-round emergency aid. I am a huge advocate and would strongly recommend, a small price to pay for a fantastic solution. Replacement stock already ordered! Regards Mark Gordon MLG Electrical £14.95BUY...

Heating Ventilation and Plumbing on the LeakMate Tool

Leaky pipes and fittings are the bane of every plumber’s working day. Whether the leak is a slow, steady drip or a sudden pressurised stream, it can cause major damage to a customer’s home in the time it takes to drain the system. Of particular dread are the times when the leak begins while other work is being carried out on the system – damage caused then often results in a customer claiming against the plumber’s insurance, or the plumber having to reduce their bill because of water damage. New to the UK market, Leak Mate is a reusable tool that plumbers can use to stop leaks in seconds, acting as a temporary fix that then allows them to safely drain the system at a convenient time without having to worry about further water damage being done in the meantime. This also means that if a plumber is called out to an emergency leak late in the evening, they can fit the LeakMate quickly and then leave the system overnight, or even for several days, until a regular appointment can be made. Compared to some other fixing methods such as fusion tape, freeze sprays and epoxy putty, the company claims LeakMate is easy to use and inexpensive. The tool can also be fitted without physically touching the pipe, which is particularly useful when working with hot water pipes, or if there is an electrical charge running down the pipe for any reason. The tool is supplied with reusable 10mm, 15mm and 22mm seals that have a recessed step moulded in to fit copper fittings.  Leak Mate also seals split and holed pipes, whether copper or plastic, up to 10...

Builder's Merchants News on the LeakMate Tool

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...
