Still going strong
16 Jan 2015
By DIYDaveB
, New Forest
" I didn't hesitate to buy another one of these when a second toilet started getting fill problems. I don't think you can go too far wrong with one of these, the original ones in my house needed maintenance annually, but the original of these that I purchased a couple of years back has been running flawlessly since.
Why only 4 stars for features? I can't really rate it as exceptional features when all it does is fill a toilet cistern. I might up it to 5 starts if it starts to boost my wifi signal too....

Great fill valve
2 Jan 2015
By Lymedo
, Manchester
" I bought this fill valve to replace one that was bundled with a concealed cistern ( not from screwfix) which was causing water hammer because the value wasn't closing in a single action.
This value was simple to install and it's really quiet compared with the one it replaced - it solved the water hammer instantly! "

" i fitted a second one of these, the first lasted years but then sprayed water over the top of the concealed cistern. As mentioned in review above, damp underneath.
The new one has a slightly different design, and works perfectly. I have tried 3 other valves in the past, which all failed within months.

" This is the second one of these I have fitted. Very easy fit and quiet operation. Note - if on low pressure system, take out the restrictor otherwise it takes a long time to fill cistern. Can't really rate performance or reliability yet... "

No hassle valve
14 Oct 2014
By Iainj
, IPSWICH
" Easy to fit, and maintain and quiet to operate. fairly reliable . Would give full marks for reliability BUT on return from holiday previous valve of same spec had developed a fault in the anti syphon valve on the top of the main valve . This resulted in water spraying from the top of the fitting and over the edge of the tank even though it had a loose cover.. This caused damage to ceiling below. However I replaced the valve with a new one as I think it is the best available on the market.
ps I fitted a simple plastic cover over the top of the new valve to ensure any sprayed water is retained within the tank in the unlikely event of a repeat fault.!

By chooks

" I repositioned and replaced my cold water storage tank and was using the standard float valve supplied with the kit. This was extremely noisy and could be heard throughout the house. After fitting the new valve it is extremely quiet and very fast filling. I am extremely satisfied but cannot vouch yet for its long term quality and reliability but admit it shows promise. "

" 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.
