Brass float valve
13 Nov 2012
By
, Redbourn
"Replacement for forty year old valve, like for like.
Straightforward to fit and does the job.
Lever arm easy to bend to ensure ball float.does not catch on the siphon or cistern.
Cannot really comment on reliability long-term, but chosen as being simple and well made with little to go wrong. Hope it will last another forty years.
NB Easy to overlook these valves come with different lever lengths. I measured up first & had no problems."

Worst part 1 valve
13 Jul 2014
By
, Newcastle upon Tyne
"This is the worst part 1 valve we have ever fitted, every one we have fitted has failed had to replace three of them with Pegler ones at my expense. Avoid, spend a little bit more and get a reliable one."

"Absolutely NOT FIT for purpose. Sprays water from two directions. Sprays over float ball and creates water hammer. This product MUST be removed from the sale. Returning for an upgrade today."

Waste of money and time
10 Nov 2013
By
, Canterbury
"As per the previous reviews this is a dreadful waste of time and effort. The price of the items in no way counteracts the fact that it is not fit for purpose (unless you want a two stream water feature in your loft!). The water comes from two directions at quite high pressure, one of which will inevitably end up shooting somewhere you don't want it to. It needs an end cap!!!!!"

"This valve is totally rubbish. Installed it today in a low pressure house. And it leaked water at all ends. lucky I still had half the lid on the tank. Otherwise it would of cost me instead of charging my customer."

Worst I've ever seen!
11 Oct 2012
By
, Leeds
"Absolute garbage!
As the previous reviewer stated the water comes out of the normal exit, but also fires out of the end!
This results in water going everywhere.
The previous perfectly good float valve from screwfix was discontinued and replaced with this. Why?
Quite possibly the worst plumbing product I have ever seen, 7 years in the trade.
Do not buy, your have been warned."

Sprays like a lawn sprinkler!
7 Oct 2012
By
, Suffolk
"This valve may be cheap, but there's a good reason for that - it's really badly designed. The valve not only pours water our of the expected exit, i.e down into the cistern where you want it, it also fires a jet across the cistern, where you don't. It then hits either the float or the other end of the cistern and sprays everywhere, and in my case escapes out of the cistern lid and onto the floor.
If you look carefully at the photo you'll see there is no end cap to prevent this as there has been on every other float valve I've bought. Don't buy one!"
