Best fill valve by far

"The brass shank makes this far superior to other similar valves making it ideal for those problem connections where cross threading is a possibility."

"I had trouble with the plastic connection version of these. I wish I'd bought this one straight away as it is so much easier to deal with. Don't want to be worrying about cross threading when you're squashed down between a wall and a toilet"

Seems all good.

"I just bought and installed this today. I am the furthest thing from a plumber with zero experience with toilet cisterns but I found this very easy to fit. After fitting first time it leaked at the bottom of the cistern so I had to use the washer seal from my previous fill valve which I noticed was covered in some sort of putty?
Anyhow its fitted now and my cistern fills extremely quickly now, I am very happy with this product and will be buying one for my second toilet now I am confident I can fit them in <15 mins."

"For the extra cost, these are far better than the plastic shank valves. Cross-threading just doesn't happen any more, and being able to tighten them up properly first time means no annoying, time consuming leaks at the connection."

"Bought this to replace a noisy ball cock system. The height adjusts easily and installation was quick. Definitely recommend spending a couple of extra quid on this brass shanked version as it creates a better seal."

replace plastic with brass
17 Dec 2013
By Bobli

"Moved Roca toilet and ever since the plastic inlet had leaked.
On the Roca plastic inlet I spent a day faffing about with PTFE, LSX , rubber washers and fibre washers.
Gave up went and got this inlet with brass fitting, no ptfe, no lsx, no bonding agent, reused existing fibre-washer made it all tight using adjustables and no leaks !!!
Took me 20mins to remove old and fit new one excellent product. Now I'm going around the house looking at other places I can see PTFE wrapped around plastic fittings and will replace them all with brass !!"

Fluidmaster Brass Shank Bottom
14 Nov 2013
By PhatBoi

"Fluidmaster Brass Shank Bottom Entry Fill Valve
Brilliant never fails and the brass shank is worth the extra few quid as you won't cross thread and you can tighten down every time.
I always have a few in the van.

Brass Shank Bottom Entry Fill
11 Nov 2013

"Although the initial cost seams a lot compared to the plastic alternative.
When you are upgrading an existing system and there is no flexibility with plumbing it can save time to go with this valve from the start.

"The brass shank makes for easier fitting than the cheaper plastic- shank product - there is less chance of stripping the thread. The instructions mention a fibre washer - it would be a good idea if Fluidmaster could supply this as standard. I kept the original washer and, of course the fitting leaked until I replaced the washer. Otherwise, working well and almost silent."

So easy to install !!
16 Sep 2013
By Downsview
, Brighton
"Previously fitted Fluidmaster's side entry valves at home so when asked to help a friend out decided to go for their equivalent bottom entry valve. A good decision as it was easy to fit and again the brass shank gave confidence to a DIY'er when tighting the connection to the water supply. The original fit valve was noisy and slow but the new Fluidmaster valve was easy to adjust and quiet in operation. Another good product."

Good Product does the job
5 Sep 2013
By Reevespg

"Bought the product when changing Cistern feed and decided to change inlet valve too as old one was brittle. This valve is excellent as the feed is bottom entry so disturbs water and keeps cistern clean, shuts off quick and is easy to setup fill level. I have it working with water saving flush on very old cistern and its made a big difference and made the operation feel new again."

Does what it says...
14 Aug 2013

"Reading the instructions made me feel confident about fitting this. I did view a couple of short videos from a well known site before proceeding. Got useful tips about how to drain the water and learnt that when removing nuts.. "Lefty - loosey" and "Righty - tighty" was the way forward. There is no fabric washer in the pack so I used some plumbers mate on the upside of the nut before fastening. ( plumbers mate also available from screw fix and handy to have around the house anyway)
Good product all-in-all and brass shank made the job feel more secure. Minus 1 star for no washer.

"Only replacement valve I will fit.
Adjustable, so fits any cistern. Has float adjustment, so can get the level perfect. Love the brass shank, no more threading the horrible plastic shanks. Bit more money than others, but never a problem with fitting them."

"The brass thread is a revelation...
After losing 3 hours of my life trying to get a watertight seal on the plastic shank fill valve that came with my WC it went in the bin...
I ordered this brass shank equivalent from Screwfix and within about 10 mins of getting home had a watertight seal and a flushing loo!
Save yourself some time and effort and buy fluidmaster brass shanks!"

"Click to length, drop in and tighten up - and the best thing is that you won't strip the threads when you tighten up the cold water feed.
Highly recommended.

Always go for the brass shank

"Customer had a leaking traditional float valve even with a new washer. The water pressure in his area was to high for the valve. Installed one of these and no sign of a drip. Coped well at high pressures."
