"Cheap replacement that does the job! It replaced a leaking original fit toilet service valve with ease. The job took me 10 mins including isolating the cold water and removing the old valve. Local Plumber quoted £50 for the same job. The valve has been in place for 2 weeks, no sign of any leaks or problems, so very happy."
"Ok, so plumbing isn't my favourite job, but I thought I could handle changing a service valve (and cistern filler) as we had a leak.
This product just added to my pain.
The valve is actually in two parts, which I only realised after I had installed everything, switched on the water, had water pouring out of it, scratched my head for a while and then read some of the negative reviews on here!!
Before installing one of these, make sure the service end is screwed into the main body. I used a bit of PTFE tape just to make sure."
"This product is likely to come apart when first used. After reading previous reviews, I checked the insert was suitably tightened, however, by the time I nipped it up it had managed to loosen itself. The first time you notice this is when you open the valve and spray water all over the room. Clearly there is a manufacturing/assembly issue with this product. There is an alternative Conex available from Screwfix, but unfortunately it is shorter and not a direct replacement."
"Be warned, The valves are not fully assembled. The shaft on all 4 packs I purchased were loose. I hadn't notice until filling the system, Had to remove and tighten every one of the shafts . I Don't expect to have too tighten a machined thread on the shaft. This should have been completed before leaving the factory. Friday afternoon job. 3/8 Allen key required."
"Bought this to replace a worn service valve while doing some repair work to toilet. That went all fine. Put this on, what a piece of junk!. Pulls out the 1/2 inch connector that goes into the valve body when you tighten bolts. Sprayed water all over place when I put water back on to test.
Only buy this if you want to flood yours or a customers house out!.
