Fluidmaster Brass Shank Bottom Entry Fill Valve
does the job
easy to fit and adjust. I have very limited plumbing knowledge but this is a simple take out the old and replace with the new valve

easy product to fit
Adjustable height is great feature and brass threaded base ensures you dont cross thread it when tightening it - not a good realisation! Fills from base and is virtually silent.

Excellent product taking up small area, important as there wasn't room for a traditional float ball arrangement.
Too early for reliability assessment

The valve was very easy to fit and I especially appreciated the metal shank. However, the cistern now takes over 6 mins to fill. It's gravity fed from a head of about 2.5m. I called Fluidmaster and they said 6 mins would be about right - no good if you need to do a double flush! Fluidmaster advised that I fit a Torbeck for a faster fill.
The Amitage Shanks one that it was replacing filled the cistern much more quickly than this Fluidmaster.
