"Have fitted several of these units now, and, as with all fluidmaster stuff, it's high quality. That said, a few of my elderly customers, who tend to be a bit heavy-handed, have managed to move the handle in the cistern. If fluidmaster made the handle a bit more robust, and also gave us a slightly longer thread, it would be perfect."
"Works great only small problem I had was that my cistern is a thick ceramic type with the large hole for handle at the r/hand corner. So with the rubber gromit and slight curvature of the inside of the cistern I had to turn the nut around cut off the little stiffeners at 45 degrees disgard the plastic washer and put the nut on backwards which the allowed for the curvature. If the thread had been a little longer say 3/16" it would have gone on with no problem. But I would assume all modern ceramic cisterns are not built as thick as this one. Only thought would be handle looked white on webpage it comes in chrome effect plastic. In this instance would have preferred white!"
"I've fitted three of these between two day nurseries as the children were finding it difficult to operate the flush handles and the handles/siphons were giving up due to the amount of use. Once fitted they have all worked without fault for the last 12 months. Great product and really easy for a toddler to press with one finger. Happy days :-)"
"Diy, not a plumber, but have had changed toilet systems in the past a nd I find the floating ball and rod so fidgity this system just screws staright into system andthe handle clips on, fighted this in under 5mins...... Easy for DIY people."
"Have fitted a couple of these now and have found them easy to fit and am very pleased with the outcome. Have only given 4 stars for reliability as have only fitted them within the last few months, but working very well so far."
"Fitted with new Fluidmaster brass shank valve. No longer needs a separate overflow (although it's still in place) and has transformed the operation of the loo. Easy to install and adjust and has made a huge difference to the old ball valve system. I would heartily recommend this to anyone still having to twist the handle off a traditional ball valve cistern."
"These are good reliable flush valves and if set up right (which is easy) can save water. Nice that they have a neat little handle instead of the button so they are a better replacement for traditional siphon flushers"
"My customer asked me to fit one to an old handle type toilet , He thought it wold have to be a push button but I found this one with a handle . looks so much better as the button has to stand very proud due to the adapter for a small front hole, He was very pleased with the look and performance . Very easy to fit and adjust. Only gave *** for reliability as only time will tell."
"used to replace an old syphon flush with broken diafragm. had to shave a bit off the squre edges of the lever to get it through the ceramic cystern as hole was too small. Should make sevicing in future far easier. No need to dismantle whole loo to change the rubber seal. And east to set half and full flush level, so could save some cash on water meter."
"I was very impressed with this conversion kit. Fits easily, and the cable operation is very light. It was particularly easy to set the flush levels via the sliders.
If your cistern has the old-style ball valve, you may find that the ball fouls the cable. If so, a fill valve such as the Opella Torbeck solves the problem. Has a very small float that operates quite close to the fill valve shaft."
"Give your old LOO a new lease of life! Ive fitted several of these now with no problem. It is quick and easy and can be used on close coupled or separate cistern installations. And for anyone with joint problems and an old loo that refuses to flush without vigorous cranking these are a must. Just a gently push of the handle is all that is required. And whats more the dual flush action and the option to set the flush to a lower use of water without the need to install water savers in the cistern mean they can save on water too!"
"I had recently fitted a new lever operated valve, which broke because of high and rough usage. This unit was identical in fitting in the cistern, but the operating function was a very light, wire operated system, with two functions. With the family now educated in the light action I can see this lasting a long time!"
"Before I write the review, THE NUT ON THE HANDLE IS A LEFT HAND THREAD, it's in the instructions but us blokes don't read them. I was going to replace my mono flush toilet untill I saw this, really good flush both ways, and no noise as others had sugested, buy with confidence"
