The Rothenberger Kibosh Emergency Pipe Repair is a unique and simple Patented device. It provides an affordable, quick and professional temporary repair for burst or accidentally perforated water pipes making it a must for every toolbox, and the top drawer..just in case!
This ingenious little gadget will get you out of some tight spots if you ever get a burst pipe. Just clip it over the burst and you have a temporarily repaired pipe until the plumber arrives, and you can continue using your water. The device is intended for professional and un-skilled use to stop the flow from a burst or accidentally perforated pipe until a full repair can be carried out.
Clamping application is achieved manually so that no tools are required.The Kibosh device had to apply a uniform sealing pressure on the pipe and contain water pressures in excess of 10 bar.
Consequently the body and lever had to be both rigid and strong and the rubber seal had to have good compression set resistance and comply with the standards of the water industry.
