  • I couldn't understand how to use this

    "I bought two of these because I was replacing an old radiator with a new one and the distance between the connectors on the new radiator was about 4cm less than on the old one. I just couldn't understand how to use them. There were no instructions included. I took them to my local Wickes store and asked for advice. The very friendly man - 'with plumbing experience' - that I talked to couldn't understand them either! So I returned them and solved the problem with a straight connector and a very short length of pipe. I should say that I am not a professional, only a fairly experienced DIY'er"

    Pros:  nothing
    Cons:  waste of money

    "Do not buy this product. I bought 2 for a replacement radiator that was smaller than the original. Both tails leaked at the point where they screw into the radiator. I removed and replaced them twice using lashings of ptfe tape and a jointing compound and they still leaked. I am now going to change the pipe layout which I wish I had done in the first place instead of taking the easy option. Be warned."

    Pros:  easy to fit
    Cons:  none

    "Didn't know these existed. I've been putting off replacing the rads in the lounge because they are imperial, and any new rads I would get would be metric, and I always thought I'd have to lift the floor and alter the pipe work to fit. How wrong I was! With this extension, you simply screw into the rad and adjust the distance to fit the valve. Simples!"
