Have had a difficult few months with low pressure causing the central heating to fail to start in a morning. First problem was to do with the boiler, which was solved by the service engineer, and the problem stopped being daily but was still there about every three days. The engineer suggested this product as he was convinced there was a leak hidden somewhere in the pipework. Since applying we have had no problems at all. Really pleased. Such fast delivery as well. Thanks.
Follow instructions carefully if using via radiator to avoid a mess on the floor. Make sure rad valves are closed before removing vent and that a valve is open after attaching tube and before injecting the product and closed again before removing the tube. Obvious but worth taking care. After about 4 weeks there is no pressure drop in the system at all. It took a few days to work but it seems to have fixed my problem.

I've used this product several times as a handyman and it did the job well. However I found that injecting it through a rad air vent was potentially messy. You need to ensure that the pointed nozzle is a good fit after you screw it in and also keep a rag around it to soak up any spillage. Nowadays, my preferred method is to inject it through the radiator vent plug using the 1/2 inch BSP threaded adapter. Even that method can result in small leak backs. To ensure a good seal, I now fit a suitably sized "O" ring over the adapter. Of course, I realise that not everyone has an "O" ring kit to hand..ha.ha! If you can get a good seal using an "O" ring the added advantage is that you can leave the F4 canister in place whilst you open up the rad valves and fire up the circulation pump. That moves the sealant around. After 5 minutes, you then stop the circulation, close both rad valves and remove the F4 canister. Then you put back the radiator vent plug and turn on the central heating. Alternatively, if you follow Fernox's instructions to remove the F4 canister before you open up the rad valves and restart circulation, you will find that a lot of their expensive sealant oozes back out of the rad :(
We have not used it yet, waiting for the plumber to come and service the boiler, then he can put the F4 in the system then we shall be good to go as they say. But I am very satisfied with the service and delivery of the fernox.
