" Purchased together with new cistern valve. Quality feel about it, plastic seems thick and robust. Only in the next 15 years will it become apparent that the design performs well in this harsh environment of a toilet cistern! "

Confidence Inspiring Ball Cock
13 Mar 2014
By Poulternator
, Birmingham
" I was after 2 new ball cocks for a toilet and also the cold water tank. After reading reviews on the confidence of their ability to perform to a high standard I was unsure. After speaking to a friend who's optimistic outlook made me take a risk. I see myself usually as a safety kina guy and wow did this kind of wild decision making was both liberating and made me feel alive for the first time.
Since instillation of my pair of cocks they are performing exceptionally and have recommended them to 6 friends and now feel that life is out there for the taking. Peace out!

Not for Dolchem valve
26 Oct 2014
By SetBuilder
, UK
" This float is not compatible with the Dolchem bottom entry filling valve sold by Screwfix as code 52836. That valve has an adjustable float position that required you to tighten the float to pinch the adjuster into its clamp. The brass thread on this float is not deep enough to do this. The thread shoulders before the adjustment is pinched up as required to lock it.
Otherwise it's a cistern float and does the job if you have one that works with your valve... "

Not happy at all
12 Feb 2014
By GLAN1951
, London
" Bought this as a replacement for a different float that had been professionally fitted three years ago, which had filled with water and caused the tank to overfill. The new float was filling with water after a week. I checked it by submerging the float completely in warm water and a stream of bubbles appeared. My advice would be to buy two or three, check them as I did in water, take back any that leak or those that you don't use. Or buy a different brand from somewhere else because Screwfix sell only this one. "

Failed & filled with water
17 Jun 2013
By DicMaxilla
, Leeds
" Fitted a few of these but had to go back to a job a week after changing the float valve and ball.
The ball had half filled with water and caused the fill valve to continually run.
Obviously I replaced the ball free of charge to the customer, but this cost me time and money.
After reading a couple of other reviews on here with the same fault I can safely say I will never fit one of these again. "

Not great
7 Nov 2012
By batty18

" Went to replace a new filler valve and float but the float had a badly machined threaded section and would not screw onto the float arm so had to re use the old one so not very pleased with it. "
