Let’s picture it, you have put a heating system in and filled it up cold, you fire up the boiler and the system is getting hot with rising pressure and temperature, a fitting starts leaking, The time it takes to drain the system down, is enough time to cause damage to the customer’s home, you put a bowl under the pipe to catch the water only to find you can’t get it out again, it’s messy and worrying and the last thing one wants is an insurance claim, or to reduce your bill because of damage caused by the leak.
Leak Mate is a unique reusable tool that will stop leaks in seconds allowing time to safely drain the system. The tool is supplied with reusable 10mm, 15mm & 22mm seals that have a recessed step moulded in every seal to fit copper fittings.
