Had a small leak behind the heat exchange going into the combustion chamber, lost about 0.1 bar a day so was topping up every day or two. Since the boiler is old and the heat exchange itelf was most of the cost of a new boiler to replace, I figured that a new one was on the horizon. While getting prices I remembered this product existed and thought for £20 it was worth a shot to simply slow the pressure drop down for now. Put it in via a towel radiator plus some inhibitor for good measure while I was there. A day or so later the pressure had stopped dropping and there was no evidence of the leak anymore. I topped back up to just over 1 bar, and that's where it's been when I check each day for about a month now. I know it's not a long term fix, but I can at least put off buying a new boiler for a little longer thanks to this. If you're in a similar situation and have a system that this product is compatible with, then I'd definitely say give this product a go!

Losing 0.5Bar per day in my sealed system. Put this stuff in, pressure stabilised.

Our heating system started losing 0.1 of a bar (atmosphere) per day. No detectable leaks. Not even via the pressure relief valve. I surmise it is below the concrete floor in the living room. I bought the Fernox Leak Sealer F4 500ml. Only when I got home did I read it was only for up to a 10 single radiator system. I reckon ours equates to 13. Rather than get more, I thought I'd try to get away with one bottle. Initially, it fixed the leak for 48 hours. Then it dropped 0.1 bar. It then stabilised for 4 days before dropping another 0.1 bar over the next 2 days. I added another bottle. No pressure drop since. That's 9 days. One tip for you. Buy the applicator if you intend adding it via a radiator rather than a header tank.
Fernox Leak Sealer

My central heating system sprung a leak from a pipe/Union sealed in a concrete floor one week before setting off on holiday. I added Fernox Leak Sealer via the header tank after emptying the tank and draining a bucket of water from the system - to ensure the sealer was drawn in to the system. I then ran the heating for a few hours to mix through system. Following morning all dry, no more leak!
The sealer has appearance and consistency of PVA glue so was too gluppy to add via a radiator. There is a version of this sealer for adding via radiator but it's much more expensive. This product did exactly what it promised to do and saved a huge amount of hassle.
