Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not suitable for some My cistern is a little too small for the fitting, so I need to use a short extension piece to connect the valve to the mains. Amazingly there is no nut type end on the brass ftting so I can't tighten the piece into the extension, so I have a drip even with PTFE. Looks like need the basic valve, it does have the nut type end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aaaah silence! Used this fill valve to replace a squealing old ball valve on the water tank in the loft. Did the job perfectly

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for plastic shank Old plastic shank version was installed (by someone else) cross threaded which conflicted with my OCD. Replacement was easy to fit but could do with allowing a bit more water into the tank as the highest level is still a tad low for the shape of the tank.

How to adjust for low water pressure

Instructions included appear to be for a different model to that supplied. Our water pressure is very low.
Asked by: Pookie18
For low pressure applications you will need to remove the restrictor. 1. Turn off water supply and loosen coupling nut by rotating 1/8 turn until you hear a click. 2. Pull valve away from shank. 3. Remove flow restrictor located inside the shank. 4. Position valve onto shank, line up lugs and tighten coupling nut by rotating 1/8 turn until you hear a click. Turn on water supply. For illustrative instructions, you can copy the following link into your internet browser: http://www.fluidmasteruk.com/downloadable/download/sample/sample_id/97/

Does this unit have anti siphon on it ?

Asked by: Untoe

Will this be a straight swap for a geberit valve

As per the photo
Asked by: slarftifartblast
The Fluidmaster SE valve is generally a universal fit for 1/2" BSP side entry feed toilets. However, Geberit valves are largely placed within a specialist concealed cistern application and will have brackets designed specifically for their own valves. Please check the fitting of the current valve prior to purchase of a new valve; if the valve is held via the (brass) shank only, the Fluidmaster is likely to fit, however if there are additional fasteners to the current valve, you may need to replace the valve with an OEM (Geberit) valve.

What size is the threaded shank on this?

If I needed to connect a flexible tap hose to it - what size would be required?
