Easy to fit

" Easy to fit and compact for tight spaces. Replaces the same one of these that wouldn't shut down due to hard water sediment but that lasted a long time and it may have been possible to replace the filter but just quicker and easier to replace. "

Excellent product

" It took me roughly 10 minutes to replace my old WC cistern float valve with this one. Simple to fit and virtually silent running; I’ve even found myself lifting the cistern lid to check that it's working as I can't hear it filling. Although the quality feels cheap, this is actually the best filling/float valve that I have used and will continue to do so from this point on. Thanks "

Good value

" Good quality product & great value.
The only negative was that the cone shape washer at the base was not as meaty as most & didn't feel that substantial, especially as some systerns have quite a large hole sometimes.

Trouble with restricting pin
2 Jul 2015
By jerb52

" Like the other reviews, I found it compact & easy to fit - as a replacement. A couple of weeks after installation the client called to say that she could hear 'dribbling' inside the cistern and could see a continuous flow into the pan (via the internal overflow on the flushing unit). I found that the fill valve could not shut off completely. One of the benefits of this design (& others similar eg Fluidmaster) is that the top is designed to be removed. A close look inside showed not grit or similar (yes, I had remembered to flush through the pipework originally) but the restricting pin had a plastic 'spur' less than 1mm high but enough to prevent complete closure; a manufacturing fault. Very irritating; why didn't it show up at installation ? I carried a spare so swapped the tops - and the problem was solved (& SFX refunded no problem). FYI, I have taken a Fluidmaster apart and that has a s/s restricting pin; less likely to get a manufacturing gremlin. "
