Fluidmaster Brass Shank Side Entry Fill Valve
This product is straight forward to fit and does the job it is designed for. Fit neatly into the corner of the cistern.

Nice while it worked
Had this installed on a CWS and it has just started to fail after 3 years. Turns out the brass shank is a waste of money as it failed so soon I would have been fine with plastic threads and Â£5 in my pocket.

Got hard water - don't buy one
Not impressed, had one fitted for 18 months & it keeps failing. The blue float on the side sticks, it did it in its first few weeks, then settled down but now it does it constantly causing my water tank to overflow.
This is bad design in my opinion, the water comes out of the top and dribbles down the side of the whole unit, so after 18 months in a fairly hard water area, this thing is coated with scale, it's presumably this that makes the float stick.
At Â£15 it's the most expensive inlet valve I've ever bought and the fastest to fail.
Only 1 yr guarantee - I won't be touching Fluidmaster again ..

Easy to install, fitted it to my 35 year old Fordham toilet and it works a treat, fully adjustable and certainly stops the water flow. You may need to make some adjustments to older toilets , for example I have had to replace the handle to allow room for the new fill valve to operate correctly but it needed a new handle anyhow!
