Aladdin has released a video detailing the process of its Pipe Genie tool, designed to make pipe blocking easy with no need for draining or freezing.

The Pipe Genie, which launches in the UK in autumn this year, benefits from the following features:

  • Punctures live pressurised pipe to block hot or cold water for maintenance or installations

  • Avoid time consuming and costly drain down and refills

  • Installs in minutes

  • Keeps closed as long as required, even on hot water (unlike freezing methods).

The Aladdin Pipe Genie Starter Kit includes one each 15mm and 22mm Pipe Genie and re-usable tools
