Works a treat
6 Jan 2014
By CaptainTightwad

"I replaced an old siphonic flush valve with this and it is excellent. It's certainly a simple principal, and hopefully will be robust.
No problems with leaks so far, and gives a very smooth, light flush action.
My wife is delighted as the siphonic was like cranking a petrol lawnmower!
I did debate whether to go for a dual flush more complex mechanism but am glad I didn't. I think I'll replace the other 3 loos which have temperamental push button mechanisms with the push button flapper version.
I also replaced the crummy old ball float fill valve with a Fluidmaster.
Good work Fluidmaster."

Good Product

"When renewing the internals of a cistern for the first time the Inlet valve and Flush valve should be replaced as a set, due to the ball float impeding the working of the flapper operation.
Very happy with the outcome,the only thing is i find the filling of the cistern unlike other reviews to take a bit of time 4mins to fill after a complete flush.The actual operation of the flush handle is very light,people may be heavy handed and it will not keep up to rigorous use.

great product

"this is a replacement for the bulkier traditional syphon.it will fit in any handle cistern and intergrates the overflow so no seperate overflow pipe is needed. it is also easier to flush as you only have to lift the flap .i always keep at least one on the van."

Perfect solution

"My two year old toilet had always flushed poorly, the siphon designed to use 6 litres only.
This flush valve similarly uses 6 litres unless you keep the handle depressed - in which case it will empty the cistern - in my case around 10 litres - when a greater volume is required.
Easy to fit and set up."

do get into a flap
28 Dec 2009
By diyplum
, Lincs
"Good points: water-saving settings, more space in cistern for future maintenance, good for arthritis sufferers, flapper replacement easy
Not so good: advertising implies it is easy to fit [true], but forgets the time required to drain and remove cistern. If the flapper fails to close properly lots of water can be wasted.
Hints: make sure the handle does not stick; have a magnifying glass to help read the instructions!

"Fitted in 45 minutes, does what it says on the tin, instructions aren`t brilliant, take your time and look at the pictures and its really quite easy to figure out. Flushes well, no leaks, thanks Screwfix a long standing problem solved."

Just go and buy one.

"Fed up with syphons and the amount of space they take up in a slim line cistern I decided to try a Fluidmaster flap valve instead.
Perfect piece of equipment, a bit fiddly trying to select washers supplied and awkward trying to fit the small chain to the valve.
Clever idea that you can adjust the amount of water flushed down the loo.
No more syphons for me, This flap valve is top of the class

"A toilet with very poor flushing capabilities was tansformed in just over 30 mins using this product. Simple and very effective. Easily fitted. Time will tell with regards to its reliability but at the moment I cannot find any negatives. I am truly flushed with happiness!"

Simple & Very Light to Operate
18 Nov 2012
By HandymanJohn
, Maidstone
"This is the first of these I've fitted as the customer wanted to stay with their existing lever operator rather than changing to a button.
Simple to install although the connecting chain seems a bit crude and the instructions don't mention cutting the overflow pipe to length.
Works well with double flush and lever is very light to operate making it ideal for children or anyone with arthritis."

"installed a month ago no problems
as is the case with all DIY purchases would benefit from clearer instructions and bigger diagrams, it appeared the foam like seal would not be up to the job , so initially wasn't sure whether to use it , but used it and worked fine"

keep away from this one!!!

By richart555

"Easy to install but :-
flapper becomes increasingly difficult to operate as flapper beds in.
hinge part detaches from stem when flapper becomes fully worn in so that water runs continually.
good idea but needs improved design."
