Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet and quick Replaced a slow refill valve with this one. Easy to remove the flow restrictor, which I did, and it filled up in no time. As others have said, it is so quiet.even on mains pressure that I had to check it was working.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Check pressure before you buy This product did not work on my system where I have very low pressure (break tank right above the cistern). It did not seal properly and the cistern overfilled. There's nothing wrong with the product itself, it's just that it seems unsuitable for such low pressures (I tried a similar product from another brand and had the same issue). In the end I used a good old fashion ballcock (a bit tight in a concealed cistern) and that is working fine.

Can the brass shank be unscrewed for assembly?

Can the shank be removed from the body of the valve to allow it be screwed into the supply connection?
Asked by: Cv34LF

What sort of washer does this use to make the seal?

My one is leaking slightly, and I need to replace the washer (or whatever it is). Hard to access so can't inspect beforehand.
Asked by: PanHandler
After buying the wrong kind initially, I finally found that the required washer is a special kind (with a steel pin in the middle), Screwfix part number 3132D.

Can the fill level be adjusted?

This is to be used for an automatic top up system in a koi pond vortex filter unit but i would need to adjust the level at which it cuts off. Current set up has the level set 10cm below the side entry point. Will this item be suitable please?
Asked by: SHW60
Yes, you can turn the white threaded rod shown on the picture, which raises and lowers the float, hence adjusting the water level at which the valve closes.

Are these suitable for hot water header tanks?

Asked by: dcdcj
If your tank is straight and not lipped then you should be OK.

How to adjust for low water pressure

Instructions included appear to be for a different model to that supplied. Our water pressure is very low.
Asked by: Pookie18
I also purchased the Fluidmaster 747UK, and have low water pressure. I had to screw a large screw into the flow restrictor which was inside the valve part, not the shank, and pull the restrictor out with pliers. Then refit as per instructions. Very pleased with it.
