Rated 1 out of 5 by from Most important part useless! I am amazed at the many 5-star reviews for this kit and I can only think of the explanation of a new supplier of the most important component - the 'doughnut' seal! I am 'only' a DIYer but with many years' experience. The purpose of the seal is ... to seal! in this case it has to seal against 3 surfaces: (1) the underneath of the cistern or metal component, covering the backnut (2) the spigot of the flush siphon (3) the ceramic WC inlet. (1) The spigot is 47mm dia whereas the seal aperture is 53mm, leaving a 3mm gap all round. (2) The backnut flange is 70mm dia whereas the seal is the same at the top as the bottom: 53mm which is impossible to fit over the nut faces let alone the flange, so again no seal! (3) I'll grant that it'll likely seal against the WC inlet but hardly any point is there? Perhaps this is the reason some reviewers have mentioned a 'higher' fit! (One star for mandatory reliability score as could not fit and will be returning for refund)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leaking cistern Easy to fit and sealed first time. The plate was not compatible but the donut washer was all that was required to do the job. Overall cheap repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective I had to replace the flush system and when I moved the cistern the old plate had rusted through! This is a simple and effective solution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product I'm a bathroom fitter and I can say with some experience that this product is terrible. 1. The rubber doughnut is too hard a compound - so it won't compress. This left the cistern sitting too high, leaving the feed pipe 10mm too short so I ended up having to add a flexi to make up the gap. Most doughnuts have a recess to accomodate the siphon backnut, this one does not which makes this problem worse. I ended up bending the metal flange without compressing the doughnut. 2. The washers provided are too small a diameter and just end up pulling through the holes in the pan. All Screwfix need to do is specify a softer compound doughnut with a rebate for the siphon backnut and bigger diameter washers.

Got fixing Kit but no domed rubber washers

My close coupled cistern and pan are held together by 2 bolts which go through the base of the cistern then through the pan and do up with wing nuts -the 2 SQUARE headed bolts go through a DOMED rubber washer to a small nut underneath then onto wing nut and metal washer . IT leaks water one side .So where can I get these special NUT BOLTS And DOMED Washers????. Screw fix?? Have now dismantled ,cleaned, and smothered in silicon glue,and refitted - No more leaks to date !!

What is the diameter of the hole in the clamping plate? It's essential to know this.

Asked by: abcd12345
The external daimeter of a 1 1/2 inch BSP pipe is supposed to be 47.803mm (according to Wikipedia). All the Close Coupling Kits I have seen so far (including this one) have holes 47mm or so in diameter and should fit a 1 1/2 inch BSP flush valve. If you have a 2 inch BSP flush valve (like a Dudley Niagara, as sold by Screwfix, B&Q etc) and you need a Close Coupling Kit, you will need one with a 60mm hole in the plate (as *not* sold by ScrewFix, B&Q, Plumb Centre...)
