So Easy to fit

"Whilst selling our home I found that the storage tank over flow was dripping. the cause was the old stop cock probably from the 70's needing replacing. Brought this one and fitted a piece of cake."

All good

"When I came to drain down the heating system and began the refill the old ballcock valve was blocked up with scale and not working reliably (unless you call two drips a second a refill.)
As a replacement I wanted the Peglar but it was out of stock so opted for this one. It was easy to fit, quieter on the refill with no more drips.
I'll replace the noisy cold water storage tank ballcock when next up in the roof, perhaps with the Peglar variety."

Part 2 Float Valve
10 Feb 2014
By Pogger
, Manchester
"I had problems with the old float valve in the cold water tank on top of the hot water cylinder. I had replaced one previously for the same problem. As the water entered it was causing the float to bob up and down in the rising water, which created a light "hammering" in the pipes. Read other reviews and took their advice. You obviously get what you pay for. This valve was slightly more expensive but seems to have cured the problems instantly. Time will tell. Good product and in stock at the local branch."

Part 2 float valve, brass
9 Jul 2014
By Plumber88
, Huddersfield
"4 stars should be Very Good as per legend??
I always put brass valves in as more reliable than plastic even if costing a bit more. No-one needs a call back.
Part 2 need to be fitted under the water bylaws to stop contamination of drinking water.
A good valve that is fitted easily as it is side entry."

not too good
5 Jan 2013
By PigletJohn
, Hampshire
"I was disappointed to find that the end cap on this, which looks in the photo like brass, is just brass-coloured plastic, and broke in transit with a larger shipment. I think something was dropped on the float arm.
Screwfix were very good, and sent me a replacement the next day.
it is rather a budget valve and the Pegler is worth the extra."

'Screams' when filling
29 Jul 2012
By jerb52
, Towcester
"Internally, in essence it's the same as other makes - BUT instead of a soft black rubber diaphragm washer this one has a firmer white washer with a bonded-on white hard plastic cone. The tip of the cone fits into a larger than normal nozzle (ie not the standard white nozzle used for HP systems). So if there's any disturbance in the inlet as the valve is nearly closed - and there always is - then the cone vibrates in the nozzle (hard plastic against hard plastic) and everything they touch resonates also. Result - enough noise to wake folk. And yes - I did check that all components were properly seated and secured ! I've had to swap out (with more expensive but more conventional internals) both of the two I've installed & will be returning all my stock for a refund as I consider this a poor design that's not been properly road-tested."

It's a screamer
24 Sep 2012
By SmellyBoy
, At home
"The old float valve caused really bad water hammer, this one is a screamer and is now in my scrap bin.
Buy a Pegler, these are not worth trying to save a few quid."
