New-to-me side entry valve
15 Jul 2014
By
, Near Cambridge
"This type of control valve was new to me, having used ball cocks previously. It was just as easy to fit, took up less room in the cistern, and did not need any fiddly adjustments, and, also, did not interfere with the flush control valve!"

"Fitted this product to a customers toilet after existing valve kept playing up. It has good adjustments, easy to install and most importantly worked very well !"

not the best
16 Apr 2014
By
, Hampshire
"It appears to be a copy of the old Torbeck or Armitage Shanks quiet valve. They are supremely silent in use, and I was very happy with them in their day, but prone to clog or jam from grit or limescale particles in the water. With practice you can dismantle, clean and reassemble correctly, but the newer Fluidmaster models, though bigger and more expensive, do seem to be better."

Does the job
17 May 2013
By
, South London
"Didn't seem as good quality as the valve it replaced, but so far it works perfectly.
A drawback for me is that the filter is only accessible from the inlet side, so I will have to remove the entire thing if the filter needs cleaning."

Value for money side valve

"I have two of these fitted, and both have the water leaking from wrong side of shutoff problem. When they work properly, great, but more often than not they don't. Great value though, you get what you pay for!"

Open Valve
23 Sep 2013

"Fitted this side entry valve to replace an "old fashioned" ball valve however it failed to shut the water off when operated. Took the valve apart but could see no obvious problems so took the part back and got a refund. I should have bought a fluidmaster as I have used this make in the past without problem but it was out of stock at the time so went for the cheaper option....wrong!!"

Noisey
28 Sep 2012
By
, Cambridge
"Replaced a badly scaled old ball cock on a filler tank with this device feeling I had updated the installation. Unfortunately it is very noisey. I originally fitted the "HP" insert but the fill was too slow. I then fitted the "LP" insert and the fill rate is good but the device is noisey and creates banging in the pipework as it operates. It also whistles as it opens and shuts off. I intend to replace it with a traditional ball cock as it will be quieter."

Unreliable
11 Sep 2011
By
, Croydon
"Fitted one of these a year ago and it failed (water flowing past shut-off valve).
Fitted this replacement to find it failing in a similar manner within days - and this is with a low pressure feed.
Screwfix were happy to refund though, and the brass ones are cheaper (albeit a little noisier)."

Not suitable for large cistern
14 Apr 2011
By
, Norfolk
"Says for toilet cistern or storage tank.
Should imagine it's ok for a toilet, but with a reasonable size storage tank it is psss, psss, filling all the time even when we're not using water, it doesn't close off for ages, is noisy and now I've got to replace it. Not happy with it at all .
