Silent night!
2 Jun 2015
By brfa
, Cheshire
" ‘Silent night’.......Fluidmaster; where have you been all my life?
I replaced my loft water tank float valve with a new Pegler brass float valve but it was very noisy; even noisier than the one it replaced...the usual clunking/groaning ...especially in the last minute or two before it finally manages to shut the water flow off completely.
I decided to try Fluidmaster instead; my water tank is plastic and this valve is very easy to fit using the contoured ‘washers’ supplied.
The brass threaded connection pipe has a ‘flat’ on either side so a spanner can be used when making the connection to the water supply pipe/nut;.......it makes the final connection so much easier when tightening up the mains water supply.
It’s very quiet in operation, but on the first few test-fills there was a distinctive squeal/thump when the valve finally shuts. However, I removed the water flow limiter (as per instruction leaflet) and it now fills and shuts-off virtually silently.
Well pleased!.........massive improvement on the old brass float ball valve.
Not had it long enough to comment on longevity. "

Fits & fills silently.

" Nice and compact, totally silent and no leaks.
The brass shank should last well in the fact of any future refits, and has flat space for a spanner for a decent fit. "

" Perfect as a replacement part, fitted into a concealed cistern with not a lot of space but managed to swap out old unit and replace without having to remove cistern from unit.
Very easy to fit and very quiet in operation.

" Easy to install, fitted it to my 35 year old Fordham toilet and it works a treat, fully adjustable and certainly stops the water flow. You may need to make some adjustments to older toilets , for example I have had to replace the handle to allow room for the new fill valve to operate correctly but it needed a new handle anyhow! "

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.

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.

" 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. "

By Pragma

" 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

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.

" 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. "
