what size of pipe does it fit?
I need to replace the float valve in my cold water tank. I can only find them to fit 15mm piping; but the one that needs replaced, and the plumbing feeding it is 22mm :-(
Hi pcplumb, in the abscence of a 22mm Float Valve in the range it is possible to fit a 22mm x 15mm reducer in the supply pipe prior to the valve. However this will reduce the flow rate feeding into the tank.
Thanks for contacting the Technical Help service.

What is the difference between part 1 and part 2 float valve?
This is for use in the loft cold water tank.
I thought it was just that the 2-part has a sliding attachment for the float where the 1-part it goes straight on the end of the arm
So it depends how high above the water level the supply hole is
