I'm Dave Armstrong from DA Gas, Heating and plumbing. Today I'm doing a Tool Talk Review for Expert Trades and today I'm reviewing the Monument Omat. So the Omat is a heat resistant mat or heat mat which is approximately six, seven inches, by six, seven inches square, with an O in the middle, or a hole. It's a 15 mil hole, and it's got a little flap on the mat, so when you go round the pipe, which I'll show you in a minute, and fold it over, you've got that bit of flap there to cover so there's no bare joint there. So your heat's not going to go straight through it. So I'll quickly show you, I've got a joint ready to solder up, it's on a tiled wall so not really the best example, ideally it would be in a paper, wallpaper or a painted wall would be the best way to show, but I'll give you what I've got.
So bear with me, I'll just turn the camera around. So just going to solder up this elbow in the corner with the Monument OMAT. So the hole goes over, that's the flap bit that I was talking about, just sits over, presume I've actually it the wrong way round. I'll just try that way round. There we go, I think that's better. Here we go.
So you can see how tight that hole is around a 15 mil pipe. To give it a good seal I'll just solder that up so you can see. Let's hope my soldering's all right, no pressure now, eh? There you go, I'm pretty much pointing that directly at the wall. And there you have it. The Monument Omat, time will tell how long it lasts, it's a bit burnt already, that's because the apprentice was absolutely blasting it the other day, but I've had Monument Mats before in the past and they've lasted well, so there you go. Monument Omat, thank you very much.
