    Default Gunson Eezibleed

    Just wondered who has used this bit of kit, was reading reviews on halfords website and in 2 minds now. Any input welcome.

    "This is a very good idea and concept, however, the problem is the fact that it relies in the air in the tyre. Alas, one thing you will note that when even you fill up air particularly from an air line at a petrol station, is that the propelled air has a lot of mositure! The reason you are changing/bleeding the brakes is because brake fluid is hydroscopic, i.e it absorbs water which leads to corrrosion and problematic brakes. So you are actually propelling the fluid with a high percentage of water contamination, so failed at the first hurdle."

    I did think to myself there cant be much moisture released from a tyre that would contaminate the braking system.

    I have one too and as everyone else has said, brilliant bit of kit.

    The only thing you need to make sure of is the tyre you use to pressurize it, is not above 14psi (IIRC) as you can blow piston seals.
    As for moisture..... you've hit the nail on the head with your above reply.

    Use one of these for the first time this week, and it made the job so easy. Got mine from amazon next day delivery for £16.00. I used a spare wheel barrow tyre that was at 11PSI Bottle says "max 20 PSI" but better to be safe.

    So if the kit requires a max of 20 psi, might have to nip down the petrol station and use the digital pump to lower spare pressure, might have to invest in one of these.
