Rated 1 out of 5 by Tim Not fit for purpose
Having just replaced a syphon in the toilet cistern, I decided to rebuild the overflow.
I bought two of these along with 22mm pipe from my local Homebase.
When I opened them I could see that they did not have a proper O ring inside.
They have a simple plastic ring as part of its moulding.
The instructions say you should lubricate with washing up liquid.
The fitting was so loose they simply pushed in.
After completion, I tested the overflow and yes, it dripped on the outgoing part of the bends.
I wonder how many people fit these and actually test for water tightness?
The only solution was to dismantle the fittings, dry them off and re-fit using a PVC pipe weld solvent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by timbo very tough piece of plastic
i bought these to use as tight bends on a pumped high pressure feed to a waterfall feature, was able to tighten the hose clps right up without any give in the plastic bends.
