Pegler Prestex Float Valve Part 2
No more drips!
Always use Pegler float valve when I get called to replace a float valve. Never any problems.

Well made Peglar product, expect it to last for many years. In stock but maybe could be supplied with washers for tank hole.

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...!!!!
