Not a bad deal in my opinion considering they are going for around the £10 in the big DIY stores and that is without the lockshield. Good reviews on their website as well.

This is the normal price for a generic brand.

Is it johnro? According to their website, normal price is £7.59. Even then, it's still a fair few quid cheaper than B&Q....

A 'generic' TRV at toolstation is £5.48 - on it's own.
So at £5.99 for both valves seems a good deal.

5.98 for a branded drayton one heatingcontrolsonline.co.uk/acl…tml

buy 10 and get free inhibinator, thats where i got mine from,if buying a few its a better deal

these have dropped then. Couldn't get them for less that a tenner when I went to pick some off the high street a while back

£5.80 with a plumbfix or electricfix account. If you have any plumbing, electrical or engineering qualification you can save on many things, sometimes considerably. I only had to give college name and dates but if you still have certificates it may be easier.

The image you have used in your post is incorrect and is in fact for a different (and more expensive) TRV:

screwfix.com/p/w…326

a little bit misleading....

also this is 15mm, alot of heating systems will use either 8mm or 10mm pipe so you will need reducers as well

purchased some of these a while back, work ok although they are often at this price.

Cold. Rubbish valves. Let your plumber supply a decent set.

This is sold in Wickes too, plus they offer a price match & 10% off the price, so you'll get it 10% cheaper at Wickes as long as you show them the price, so I guess the best place to but it would be from there!

Plumbers will probably buy these and charge u double (_;)

Not likely pal. No one could pass these off as being worth £12. Why people think its a good idea to scrimp on plumbing and heating is beyond me.

only a 3% discount with an account

looks like plumbsure one I bought from b&q forg 7,48

I thought this was cheap when they had them at this price before, but my local of course had none in stock, call me cynical, but that's always the way, but like I was saying, I thought this was cheap until I went to my local plumming shop in town, and they sold the full kits for 5 quid, And they were always that price.

Great value got these from screwfix few years ago non have failed
Had a branded one fail (was old though) and got expensive one from plumber merchants
Because its close and screwfix bit of drive for me but it was same as my cheap screwfix ones just
had different cap and name and twice the price
Why people think its a good idea to pay more on plumbing and heating is beyond me

Voted hot from me! I paid £20 for 3 last year and for the price they are really good valves.

I fitted these last year to all my radiators and they have operated faultlessly, easy to fit, never had a single leak HOT!!!!!

And 'Line' his pockets at an inflated price!

Thanks for posting it. Ignore the whingers.

Toolsatation also have cheap TRVs for £5.48.

Using Screwfix or Toolstation can save a lot of money compared with the big DIY sheds.
