Looks a bit space age for my old bog, not sure this could handle a short, short, long, short thrashing on the button to get half a flush.

Heat added op , Thank you !
Great price for a simple fix (with a bit of help from youtube) - cheapest I found about 3 months ago at screwfix was the Fluidmaster one for £9.49 so heat added here...
Buy one and leave it in the shed at this price for when you need one. These are great for old bogs and new.

I just bought this at the weekend to fix the constant running of flush after flushing due to that wee plate thing inside the white canister not going back down, is the fluidmaster one easy to fit/ not attempted it yet

Hi this is easy to fit see youtube you may need a new doughnut seal for between the pedestal and the cistern when fitting.
The other advantage is it can be replaced very easy in the future as the barrel can be replaced as it fits the cistern on a bayonet fitting twist to remove and replace without any further plumbing required.
You can also get a lever for this instead of a button

Is this one better or worse or about the same ? Bonus is it comes with all the seals.

You'll need a new doughnut washer as well as what's in the kit but don't buy the hard rubber Screwfix ones unless want to guarantee leaks at the cistern/pan joint. Don't know about others but the ones Wickes sell are the decent soft and squashy type.

Link to YouTube please?
How will I know if this is a correct fit for my toilet? I can't see any marking on my toilet to check? Thanks

Check the hole size in the bottom of your cistern, make sure it fits.

Cheers mate. I have looked for youtube video but couldn't find one for the product we got, do you have a link to one? Also, I take it just any donut washer will do? Assuming you can't use the donut washer already on the toilet at the minute?

Fair comment, should have checked a bit further and will expand my comment.

This is a 2" outlet, although Screwfix don't seem to want to tell you someone mentions it in the Q&As, and has one of the more modern type doughnut washers which aren't really 'doughnuts' anymore.

From experience most older toilets, where I'd guess these would be destined to go replacing an old syphon tend to be 1.5" and so this won't fit. The Flowmaster version is 1.5" but includes a converter so you can use it with 2" outlets as well although is a bit more expensive and would need the appropriate doughtnut.

Moral is check what sort of connection you've got or perhaps buy both types and take the unneeded one back when the job is done.
Thanks OP.

Was about to buy, but checked reviews on the site first. Negative reviews just too numerous to risk, even at this cheap price. Went for the Fluidmaster version instead, at £9.49
Is this fitting considered hi-tech or bog standard?

I was about to say the same. Not sure about the reliability.
How loud is this when filling? Looking to change ours, the toilets in a 5 year old house are rediculously loud!

This is a flush valve not a fill one.
any link for youtube video thanks
Or if yours is already fluidmaster just clean off the limescale and replace this usually the part that's failed when the bowl constantly fills and much easier to change than the whole valve.

Wonder how this would deal with half a pound of mashed up Dundee cake?
Will this fit any "bog standard" toilet?
Seems a bargain! Heat added.

The other common issue with Fluidmaster ones, and more likely if it's more than just a continuous dribble, is the cable at the button end gets limescale build up on it and doesn't slip back closing the valve when it's finished flushing. One screw in the block where the cable goes and it comes apart, easily cleaned up and as good as new if you don't let it go too far. Worth cleaning the scale off the flush seal you mentioned occasionally too which will extend its life.

Yeah come across that, I just chucked the whole lot in white vinegar last time out (apart from chrome plate) but the seals also bubble and there's only so many times you can pop the bubbles with a scalpel.
