“...on a cursory inspection of pipework internals at both the outlet of the Expel and further along the pipeline to the brakes, there was no sign of moisture ('looked bone dry' was the report I received). Again, this was in contrast to the 'older system' which showed visible and tactile signs of moisture (felt damp in the pipe)”.
