Pegler Prestex Float Valve Part 2
3 x Valves Failed
I originally swapped out a very old valve that worked but was noisy and was very corroded. I purchased the Pegler unit from Screwfix as its a well known brand and at a good price too.
The installation was very simple and I was happy with the low noise. The first unit failed after a few months... I was in a rush to get it fixed and couldn't find my receipt so just purchase the same model again from Screwfix. This second unit failed again after 3months so I dismantled it to see if it was something I could fix or maybe something had dislodged... there is a rubber disc that acts like the diaphragm and this had been perforated by the piston.
I put it down to possibly just being a bad batch and stuck with the brand as Pegler are very well known.... Yesterday the third unit failed and just before I leave to go abroad with work. This is a very poor quality unit and I'm disappointed that Screwfix don't offer higher quality versions!! I will not be buying Pegler again...!!!!

An absolute easy repair..
Bear in mind this was the most I had pretty much done in the way of emergency repairs, came home, water pouring out of the overflow pipe outside the house, took the old float valve off, no idea what I needed so took the whole thing down to screwfix,took it out the carrier bag and showed the guy behind the counter...." No problem" he said, popped out the back, came back with the exact same match and that was that. Excellent replacement product, went on so easy and job now repaired. Couldn't thank the guy at screwfix enough for helping me out.

Pegler Prestex Float Valve
I needed a new float valve for my tank in the loft as the one up there had started to leak and every morning there was a patch of water underneath the overflow pipe outside the house. I went for Pegler brand as it is a well made quality item and should last for years. Easy to fit and set up. The only thing not supplied was rubber washers but I had a few of these.

Exactly what was needed
Fitted in the tank no problem.
Very easy to install with no problems!
Good quality feeling to it and shouldn't cause any problems when it's been installed.
