"Cheaper types are available, but this valve is good quality. Easy to fit and the old plastic ball fitted ok, saving a few quid. After installing this valve the horrendous noise in the pipe work vanished."
"You can get cheaper float valves but I wouldn't recommend it. Pegler valves are reliable and well made. I bought this to replace the passing float valve in my cold water head tank. Replacement was very straightforward and works perfectly. Not forgetting the usual courteous and efficient service from Screwfix staff."
"Was having problems with overflow from the tank and found my 10 year old ball valve wasn't shutting off fully, and slow to fill. Purchased this one which looks exactly the same as the old one, & replaced very easily. I'm not a plumber but have some DIY plumbing experience, and found this very simple to fit as long as you have the correct tools. Good quality which looks like Brass so very reasonable in price. Fills quickly, shuts off the water fully & works well."
"Had a noise problem for ages, vibrations in the cold feed, which were progressively getting worse. Load noise always started when loft cold tank started to fill. After restricting the cold flow into the tank to a trickle, the noise would cease but would start again as soon as the flow was increased. I noticed that the ball valve in the cold tank was in poor condition and thought I would start there. After changing with the new Pegler ball valve, the noise problem was gone. Obviously the old lime scaled valve was causing the problem. Simple to change the new component with a bit of plumbers mate to seal, Happy days."
"This brass Pegler Prestex is more expensive than inferior substitutes, but far better. It will last for many years, can easily be serviced, and has a lot of easy adjustment of float height (no need to bend the brass arm and risk damage)
This is a Part 2 valve which is required on mains-fed tanks to prevent contamination of the water."
"Bought this float valve to replace a very,very noisy one for the loft tank. Fitted this one and the fill is almost silent! Everyone in the household very pleased, would recommend you get one of these if you have a noise loft fill and it's driving you mad! :)"
"Having fit plastic valves before and being totally fed up with stripping the thread whilst installing and then the things packing up fairly quickly I decided to go for this one instead. Easy to fit, feels like good quality even though it's not much more expensive than the plastic ones, defnitely recommended."
"The original valve fitted to the supply tank in the loft was very noisey when the hot water was used. After fitting this Pegler Prestex Float Valve Part 2 the tank now fills up with no noise at all, we can now sleep without being disturbed. Easy to fit & adjust."
