"the back of my tiolet was leaking and had no idea what to look for or the name of the item i had to replace but a quick look on screwfix found it, i noticed there was several in stock local to me and purchased within 20 mins, got home and replaced item in 2 minutes and now i have no leaking bog, just what i needed."
"Mother-in-law's 1950s toilet was leaking over the floor. Leak traced to where the pipe from the cistern entered the back of the toilet bowl - perished rubber adapter. Thought I'd look in the Screwfix catalogue not really thinking they'd have a suitable part for such an old toilet but found a flushcone which looked like it might be what I was after. Catalogue description poor (for a non plumber) but internet reviews confirmed it was what I needed. Popped down to Screwfix, bought one on spec, and it fitted perfectly. No more leaks and a very shiny halo all for less than £1.50! Forced to review features and reliability- why no 'not applicable'?! So - 3 stars for features - it's a flushcone for heaven's sake! 3 stars for reliability (how can you review reliability when it's only just fitted?) in hope!"
"Cheap price but does the job. The item was ordered online. It was ready at store within 5 minutes and received txt and email to say so. Went to store to collect and I was in and out within 5 minutes. Fitting was simple and leak fixed."
"Great product and certainly cheap enough but, be warned.. I found it VERY tight and mistakenly used hot water to soften it up. DON'T... It shrivelled up and was then useless and I had to buy another. My fault I know and just annoying that I could not finish the job without having to go back for another one. Once fitted, did the job perfectly. At least it wasn't an expensive mistake. Use the silicon grease mentioned in the other reviews."
"Just the job. Needed a replacement for the 1970's rotted fitting on a very old WC flush pipe. This was ideal. A touch of silicone grease on the fins and on the flush pipe and job done! No leaks, no dramas and quietly impressed clients"
"i had a plumber round who fitted one of these, as i had a very old external rubber one siliconed on.
i noticed it was leaking after it was fitted, i bought a new siphon to fit myself and ended up getting a new flush pipe so it fitted properly and that came with this flush cone.
so i have had 2 fitted and both of them leak, im now waiting for a rubber flush cone to arrive to fix the job, total waste of time, although these are cheap it does not justify the damage done by fitting one."
"I would recommend NOT to purchase these type of plastic flush pipe seals. The problem is their poor plastic fins which push fit into female socket of pan. The plastic fins are weak and it's all to easy to pop out. They are unfit for purpose.(see other reviews which have experienced same problem)
The rubber grip flush pipe seals have strong rubber fins which are set at reverse angle which holds the seal firmly in place. Once the flush pipe is inserted this further enhances a really tight and leak free joint. I wish Screwfix would sell the proper rubber type instead of this cheap and weak plastic material"
Only bought it as a last resort as my merchant was out of stock of proper rubber ones.
Had to do exactly the same as previous reviewer.. ie. clean up the original one and silicone it in place. This one was popping out and could have easily flooded the customers house. An accident waiting to happen, don't risk it.
The toilet manufacturers/suppliers ought to stop sending out these useless plastic ones too."
