Rated 5 out of 5Â by Alski Mr sceptical proved wrong.....
I have tried several makes of ball valves, including Pegler, to solve the terrible water rush noise in the mains pipe when the tank in the loft fills.
So, I was pretty sceptical of the previous reviewer 'Ives', who stated that having had the same issue as me, installing the Fluidmaster silenced all the noise!!
Well, large slice of humble pie for me to get thru, cos he was absolutely right, I now have a totally silent filling tank as well, absolute bliss!!
At three times the cost of a ball valve it could be considered a bit expensive but in my opinion worth every penny & as others have said, it's easy to fit for a DIYer.
I've given a 5 star for reliabilty although Its only been fitted recently, I guess time will tell. However, if it needs replacing more often than a ball valve I don't mind, it's more than worth it for peace & tranquility.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by mikemaintenance good value product
Bought this to replace a slow filling enclosed cistern toilet i had in the Bathroom needed a side entry one as it's quite a shallow tank max 220 m/m decided on this one as it had the Brass 1/2 BSP thread in brass instead of the cheaper Plastic one and it was shorter than 220 m/m to fit the tank fitted easily into existing slot in tank with the rubber washers shaped to fit and lock nut .
Also has quick release fitting to take out the guts of the float system without having to strip the cabinet enclosure apart would defiantly recommenced for short enclosed cisterns

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ives Fantastic, silent product.
It's actually silent!!!
To be clear, I'm talking about the metallic water-flowing-through-a-pipe noise (similar to noise of un-tuned FM radio), not the noise of water pouring/dripping into the tank.
Fitted this to the cold water cistern in the loft, and everyone can now sleep at night! It's totally silent, apart from the small squeak when it shuts.
Previously had the Pegler brass float valve fitted, which was mighty noisy. Not surprised for the price to be fair.
Only criticism I have, is that when fitted, the whole assembly inside the cistern can rotate with a pretty light touch. To me it seems like it could rotate by itself given enough upward force from the float. Fingers crossed it doesn't!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bantrol Quiet!
This product is remarkably quiet. So quiet that on testing I at first though it was not working, Fill time is not sacrificed to achieve this either.
Simple to install, as I guess are all , but also this features a very simple system to flush any possible debris out of supply pipe if needed.
High quality material, easy and effective fill height adjustment., very compact.
