Losing compression on cylinder 2 & using water.

Rover 25 K series
Car come in with overheating issue and losing lots of water, did compression test found cyclinder 2 to be down! The repair was not worth the value of the car to replace the head gasket.
So I thought I would give steel seal a try. Followed the instructions and never thought it would work, after running it up with the steel seal in the coolant, the steam stopped and it hasn’t lost water since. I did a compression test again after a few weeks and the results was the same across cyclinder 1-4, quick easy cheap fix will use again.
