Fluidmaster Button Cable Dual-Flush & Bottom Inlet
First time I have ever replaced this kind of item before. It was relatively easy. I think the quality of the filler unit is poor and a little flimsy and the flush button is cheap and tacky. But overall it works but How long for.

I recently moved house and found that 2/3 toilets would not flush properly. In fact the handle on one toilet broke off in my hand. I decided to replace membrane siphons with this fill valve design. The instructions are very clear and it is very simple to fit. The dual flush buttons are easy to operate (very little force needed) and very stylish giving a modern facelift to any cistern. The cistern refills rapidly and there is a great deal of control on how much water is used for the half flush.
Note: My toilet was quite old so the bolts and doughnut for the close couple cistern had badly perished (bolts had to be sawn off), so I would recommend replacing them at the same time (search for WC Close Coupling Kit). Whist you are at it you may also want to install an isolating/service valve to the cold water feed if one isn't already fitted.

The old cistern had packed in completely and after reading reviews on this product thought I'd try to see if I could replace it( although kept the plumbers number on speed dial ).
I had more problems taking the cistern off than actually fitting this and putting the cistern back on.No doubts , get a new WC coupling as suggested by other reviewers.
I could not believe how easy it was to fit , instructions were very clear and easy to understand however I still spent 5 minutes thinking " is that it ?" . Result. Now doing the victory dance and heading to the pub.
Thanks Fluidmaster and Screwfix

WOW --- Simply WOW !!!
Right, I'm no DIY'er but when my misses approached me one morning with the toilet flush handle in her hand I knew I had to do something. Yes, it had broken off. As it had also been misbehaving for a while I bought 1 of these and oh what a choice. A complete novice can install it and I was that impressed I bought another for the family bathroom toilet. Happy happy days. Thank you.
