"Simple installation with clear instructions. Very quiet operation. Easy accurate adjustment of water level. Need to be careful not to over tighten brass union nut on plastic thread. Better value than the cheaper Torbek valves that are less reliable."

Excellent Valve
23 Feb 2012
By David99E
, Hampshire
"I bought this to replace an identical one in my plastic cold-water tank which had given 15 years of totally trouble free service before failure.
I would particularly recommend it for this application because, unlike valves with a lever arm, the sliding float is unaffected by the flexibility of the sidewall of the tank and so it can close off the flow cleanly without oscillation or water-hammer.
I was delighted to be able to buy the valve from Screwfix for less than half the price being charged by a well known competitor.

"An excellent unit that stopped the dripping of the old ballcock in my toilet. Took 5 mins to fit, even with my poor DIY skills. I think I prefer the pro version due to it's brass thread as it removes the worry of stripping the threads but, then again, I fitted this one without a problem so guess I saved a couple of quid."

Fluidmaster Valve
19 Jul 2010
By Pobinr
, Southampton
"I own a number of flats. If I don't use reliable durable quality products then I wind up with more maintenance & repair jobs than would otherwise be the case. Cheap is dear in the long run.
Conventional ball cock valve washers usually fail after 2 or 3 years in the cisterns & also immersion header tanks that are awkward to reach.
When I fit a fluidmaster in place of the old valves, I know they'll go on for many years without the need to replace the washers or jets.
If they ever need replacing then it's very simple to unclip the holder & replace the sealing washer.
Highly recommended if you want to minimise hassle. Time is money. So well worth the extra cost.

"Have fitted two of these Fluidmaster float valve to date, one in a toilet cistern and one in a CW storage tank, both on high pressure feeds, both replacing conventional lever arm ball valves. Installation was very straightforward and the performance of these valves is excellent, both the cistern and the storage tank now fill VERY quickly with a lot less noise than their brass predecessors!"

Fill valve fills the small bil
14 Aug 2013
By Anonymous
, Buckinghamchire
"A very nicely manaufactured piece of kit. If its good for thousands of flushes, not knowing its material formulation or indeed my mains water supply it will easily outstrip the operating life of the old type ball valve. Thank god. My only concern might be,albeit only over the first few weeks of operation so far, is that the valve may not shut off completely each tme the cistern is flushed.I would pointout that I have a high pressure system serviced by a pump for the whole water system which so far recycles just flush +1 times. Pump cuts back in with any movement in flow. A ball valve is incapable of dealing with this phenomomunon at all, instead goes on repeating itself."

"This was a replacement for the same model I fitted some twelve years ago. Clearly they don't last forever. They are easy to fit and the last one did give a dozen years of completely trouble free service and was nice and quiet in operation too. The previous model failed due to the thin metal push rod coming unstuck from the rubber diaphram."
