Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to fit and good quality Easy fit to replace decades old original. Mostly brass construction. Let's wait and see on performance and reliability. 17 Jun 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Upgrade float valve Bought to replace existing Part 1 valve with leaking copper ball float. Easy to fit and set up, works perfectly (I have monitored for a couple of days). Only time will tell on long time reliability so have given four for that section. Friendly and efficient staff at Norwich Hall Road pick up point as usual. 1 Jun 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent service Bought this part 2 valve from the Leyton, London branch to exchange an old part 1 valve which was dripping and coming out the overflow pipe! More importantly was the service I got in the trade section, highly knowledgeable, generous with it and very patient especially as I'm not trade and just trying not to call a plumber out by doing this myself. I was helped by the same man a few months ago when I was changing bath taps for the first time and again, he gave me confidence I could do it! Changing the water tank valve looked an easy job on youtube but don't forget to turn the water off first and let some water out through the bath cold tap or the float will keep pushing the washer out while you're trying to fit ha ha! Yeah, I'm a plumber now ! 20 May 2016

Hole Size

Hi

It's probably obvious on the listing (but I can't see it). Could you please let me know what size hole I'd need to cut in the tank to fit this?

thanks

Answer: 
Hi Brett,

The inlet tail thread is 1/2" BSP which has a diameter of 0.825" or 20.9mm therefore 22mm or 22.5mm should clear the tail.

Thanks for contating the Technical Help line.

Flow rate?

I have not long had a power shower fitted, & have just found out that the header tank can't keep up if two people have a shower one after the after. I've noticed the float valve in the header tank pretty much looks like one you would get in a toilet & fills up at the same sort of rate too. So my question is this, does this valve have a faster flow rate & fill up my header tank quicker? Many thanks

Answer: 
These valves have been around for many years in much the same format, so I suspect it is very similar to the one you already have fitted. The reason they are fairly slow is that you really don't want too much of a flow going in to the tank or it deprives the rest of the house.
There are two possibilities I would look in to. Firstly, fit a 3/4" or 22mm float valve. This may seem silly when its fed with a 15mm pipe, but really it will increase the flow. Secondly, you could fit a pump in the house to increase the cold water pressure. Increasing the pressure will increase the flow to all areas of the house, so will not result in you depriving the rest of the house.

Answer: 
It's a 1/2" fitting, so you need a 1/2" tap connector. These are available at Screwfix. To connect a 15m on the other end, you need something like a 1/2" tap connector with 15mm end feed. If you just search for that you will find it.

Answer: 
Hi Adiadi, thanks for contacting our Technical Support. The entry end of the valve is designed for connecting to standard 15mm copper pipe,so yes the tap connector is compatible.

Hi, thanks for contacting Pegler Technical support. Unfortunately the Part 2 Floatvalve is not supplied with a plastic Float Ball, however these components can be supplied separately by Screwfix.
