    Pros:  half the price of others - same quantity.
    Cons:  not suitable in less than optimum conditions.

    "I needed to re-route two metres of central heating pipe for a kitchen re-modelling. Text book case of a horizontal 15mm pipe with no paint and in good condition about 50cm from where I needed to cut. The other end isolated by shutting off the radiator. The freeze lasted the duration (about 18 minutes) of cutting and making two compression joints, and saved renewal of the system treatment that draining would have made necessary. Tips: 1. Make the hole at the top, in the middle, and as small as possible. 2. If you rely on the zip ties, pull them _very_ tight. I had leakage from one end, and used duct tape to seal the ends of the jacket better. Good value at half the price of competitors, for the same quantity of freezing fluid."

    Pros:  simple to use, no leakage
    Cons:  bit pricey for a single use

    "An excellent piece of kit. I used it to fit a shut-off valve on a pipe in a flat. It would have been very difficult to shut-off the water as there was no individual stop-cock in the flat itself. Saved a lot of hassle and did exactly what it said."
