"Brought this fitting to eliminate noise during topping up my cold water tank. This valve does the job nicely. It was quite easy to fit and of good quality."

The one to buy
20 Jan 2014
By Oldhenry2
, Loughborough
"I bought this to replace a plastic shanked valve which would continue to drip water whatever I tried to do.
The brass one is perfect from the first fitting and I wish that I had bought t originally .
So far it is good and very quiet unlike my old valve which sounded like an express train when you had a shower.
Good price as ever.

awesome with the brass shank

"I've fitted a few of these with the plastic shank and they are quite easy to damage so very pleased to get one with brass shank.
Easy to fit, easy to adjust, quiet and in my experience they are reasonably reliable."

Brilliant Valve
17 Sep 2013
By Diwi
, Edinburgh
"Was driven crazy with a whistling Torbeck Valve which was supposed to be silent. After many sleepless nights decided to take the plunge and replace it with this one. WIsh I had done this sooner as this one is so quiet that I can't tell when the cold water tank is filling. Recommend the brass fitting as no likelihood of stripped threads which I had found plastic valves prone to. Simple to install and simple to adjust.
Definitely recommend it.

By Downsview

"Fitted three of these now two at home and one in a friends flat - really impressed. I'm a DIY'er and the brass shank feels so much more robust and confidence inspiring when fitting than the plastic equivalent. They're easy to fit, easy to adjust and so much quieter than the valves they replaced. I wouldn't use anything else."

"I have a fill valve that is fast & quiet. This is easy to fit & has plenty of adjustment on the float. It only takes a few seconds longer to fill than the old ball valve but is still very quiet. You wan't regret buying it"

Does the job
21 May 2013
By Pragma
, Tamworth
"I bought one of these to replace the fill valve in a compact cistern at home where several of the alternatives wouldn't fit, and this did the job fine. A few weeks later, the ball valve in the water tank also went so another of these sorted that, too.
Easy to fit and both have been quiet, give a fast fill, and have been reliable so far
Recommended.."

How to quieten Noisy filler
18 Jan 2013
By MASH36
, Southend
"The cold water tank had been very noisy for a long time. Decided to fit a side entry Fluidmaster. What a transformation silent speedy fill now ,should have done it long ago.
Chose side entry with Brass Shank to avoid any troubles you might get with a normal plastic shank. All the tanks and cisterns now have Fluidmaster Fill Valves.
Usual good service from Screwfix ,although not in stock arrived at local depot next morning.

Highly recommended
5 Nov 2012
By KeithM2

"Installed to replace an unhappy Torbeck valve which made very odd noises. The Fluidmaster is quiet, rapid filling and has a better range of float adjustment than the Torbeck. The brass stem avoids the cross-threading problems on plastic ones. The only downside is that it is not the most compact valve, as noted in another review.
It's well worth the money as far as I'm concerned."

Best Fill valve on the market
18 Oct 2012
By mwtheplumber
, Bracknell
"The fluidmaster is my inlet valve of choice. The brass stem is far better than the platic version and worth the extra. Just be aware that it will not fit some old cisterns with siphons, depending on the position of the siphon."

Not for low water pressure

By Anders
, Chelmsford
"Quality build, but needs a replacement washer for ultra low water pressure systems. Valve doesn't shut at 0.1 bar, so product description misleading. Otherwise, a quality item."

Fluidmaster Brass Shank Side E
30 Apr 2013
By Parsonm
, East Sussex
"I bought this unit as a replacement for an Opella Torbeck on a CWS. The original Torbeck couldn't take the high mains pressure, so we had hammer, the newer replacement cured the hammer, but it was so noisy as it filled the tank, starting and finishing with a whistle. Any combination of the two didn't work.
The Fluidmaster works with no hammer but it is noisier than the Torbeck. The only plus point here is that it has a greater through put, so it fills the tank back up faster.
Points to note. The valve sits in the water, but because of its design, the valve body sits lower down the tank resulting in a lower water level despite setting it to its highest setting. Also, turning a a mains tap on and off anywhere in the house causes the valve to operate for a short while, even though no tank water has been used.
Looks like it is off to Screwfix again to buy a Honeywell PRV.
