"Bought this part 2 valve from the Leyton, London branch to exchange an old part 1 valve which was dripping and coming out the overflow pipe! More importantly was the service I got in the trade section, highly knowledgeable, generous with it and very patient especially as I'm not trade and just trying not to call a plumber out by doing this myself. I was helped by the same man a few months ago when I was changing bath taps for the first time and again, he gave me confidence I could do it! Changing the water tank valve looked an easy job on youtube but don't forget to turn the water off first and let some water out through the bath cold tap or the float will keep pushing the washer out while you're trying to fit ha ha! Yeah, I'm a plumber now !"
"I've marked this down a bit as after two months in service it failed - the washer had split in two. I suspect it was faulty when installed, a quick trip to the local ironmongers for a 29p washer and back in service ok. So have a look at the washer before you install, because this is otherwise a well made, value for money product."
"Noticed water from my overflow pipe coming from the cold water tank in my loft. The fault was the ballcock unit. I went online onto the Screwfix site and saw the Pegler Float Valve. Went into my local Screwfix and after discussing with the helpful sales person I purchased one. I am not a DIY expert but replaced it in less than half an hour, working perfectly."
"When I turned on the hot tap and it dribbled out, I knew we had a problem. Upon investigation, the float valve in the header rank was completely corroded with limescale. So, a quick trip to Screwfix and the purchase of the Pegler valve did the trick. 10 minutes to fit it and it does the job perfectly. I also bought a new float ball to go with it and the two together do the job brilliantly. Easy to fit, runs quietly too, no knocking or banging from the loft anymore - YAY!!! For the sake of an extra two pounds, it's worth buying the Pegler, as it's well made and does the job it's made for without any grief or drama."
"On Sunday morning, I found that the tank in the loft was overflowing. I looked up what I needed on the internet and found that Screwfix were giving the best price. It was also open. I went to Screwfix and bought a Pegler Prestex Float Valve, went home and fixed the problem in half an hour. Very pleased I could sort it out so quickly, and on Sunday too."
"I have an electric hot water tank which is making lot of vibrations & noise on filling due to faulty float valve. Quickly searched on screwfix website and bought one for replacement. This is good quality, sturdy valve, even tightening nuts are made of brass rather than regular plastic ones. Replacing it took just 15-20 minutes. All noise/vibrations in the pipework gone. Living with peace of mind now :-) Screwfix is best !!"
"Had the dreaded signs of water under the overflow - put the job off for a few weeks then ordered the part on line collected it an hour later and fixed the same day its a quality product, easy to fix & much better than previous one"
"Bear in mind this was the most I had pretty much done in the way of emergency repairs, came home, water pouring out of the overflow pipe outside the house, took the old float valve off, no idea what I needed so took the whole thing down to screwfix,took it out the carrier bag and showed the guy behind the counter...." No problem" he said, popped out the back, came back with the exact same match and that was that. Excellent replacement product, went on so easy and job now repaired. Couldn't thank the guy at screwfix enough for helping me out."
"I needed a new float valve for my tank in the loft as the one up there had started to leak and every morning there was a patch of water underneath the overflow pipe outside the house. I went for Pegler brand as it is a well made quality item and should last for years. Easy to fit and set up. The only thing not supplied was rubber washers but I had a few of these."
"This unit is probably better than the original units fitted 20 years ago. Now replaced both header tank valves and can see no troubles. Nice to have brass nuts not the usual plastic looks nice and solid"
