Rated 1 out of 5 by from YOU HAD ONE JOB . . . . I'm a massive fan of Fluidmaster valves, been fitting them for 20 years. I have fitted hundreds literally and NEVER had an issue until this one. Bought it, despite the bad reviews, as the Pro45B wasn't in stock - you need to sort this out, BTW Screwfix - and guess what? It did exactly as some of the other reviewers have said. Difficult to adjust - can't tell if you are raising or lowering the fill level as the float is hidden. Adjust it too high, and it doesn't shut off at all. But here's the killer, adjust it to what you think is the correct position and check it is shutting off. At some point, after you have gone home to eat crisps and watch Coronation Street, it will decide to start dripping and overfill the cistern, resulting in an unnecessary call-back. Dear Fluidmaster, why change an absolute bomb proof product (the aforementioned 45B) and replace it with this unreliable, overly complicated piece of dog poo? I like the concept, but it has ONE job, and if it fails to do that, then what is the point of it?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am plumber and needed this for my own house. Fluid master is my goto float valve, however I was very disappointed with this new valve. The standard Pro valve you can isolate and whip off the top section and change in under a minute and replace with a new valve head. But not with new valve the valve head won’t disconnect with the stem so you will have drain the cistern to change fluid master what have you done !! Height adjustment great new design except as you adjust the float height it interferes with the funnel and won’t allow the valve to tightly shut off so continues to drip. If you wanted to limit the height allowed for adjustment why not fit a stop. Your original pro allowed 360mm height why only allow 340mm adjustment with this new unit. With a small amount of redesign this could be as reliable as the Pro. I should have heeded the negative reviews and purchased the Pro. Fluid master you could have done better !!!! I will try and keep the older pro model on the van.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad flow adjustment Bought 3 wks ago easy to fit.Tried adjusting water level got it right,flushed well below previous level,flushed again overflowing before it stopped. Unable to get the level right so left it about 1 inch below.It then started to refill with short bursts for hours.Very annoying at bedtime.Removed and replaced with a different model.Fingers crossed as working in a tight space.Could not fault counter staff at screwfix.

Low score reviews

The three final reviews on this product are worrying. Is there a design flaw in this model that means the older model is superior? Not being able to adjust once the device is in the cistern is a problem.
