If you decide to go for the fill valve as well you should make sure you get the one with the brass screw not the plastic screw which cannot be tightened too much because it will strip the thread unlike the much stronger brass screw.

Correct and the price is pretty high everywhere
Thanks reserved one for click and collect
I've ordered done and at that price it's a bargain. They also do a more complete set for I think £6.
Got one
great price, easy to install. Replaced some old knackered ones with these a couple of years ago.
Excellent price and they are decent 🔥
Crazy price. Thanks OP

Can you post a link please (I can't seem to discern the correct one - all those I've just seen on B & Q seem to have both brass and plastic listed in the same fixture)?
Thanks

The brass bit pokes through the bottom of the cistern and has the inlet water pipe screwed tight to it. I used the plastic-screw version that came with the combined fill & flush kit, also from B&Q, and had hellish problems getting a watertight seal between the the metal end of the flexible inlet water pipe and the soft plastic shank on the Fluidmaster filler. Used loads of PTFE tape and loads of worry.

I will certainly use Fluidmaster in future but only with brass shanks.

I just bought both these items from Screwfix yesterday.. £15

And the above advice is spot on. I learnt this.. the hard way.

No stock left... will check instore
Just paid £7 for one of these from screwfix! Where was this deal two days ago when I needed it?

Great deal. I really need to activate dual flush simultaneously after I’ve passed solids to get them away and down the pipe

Correct Banjo, I had that issue a couple of weeks ago, leaking plastic thread(nightmare) nothing will stop it except a new fill valve. Got the brass one and it’s cured.

Thanks for your kind reply. I'll have a search, now I know better what to look for
question, I need to change my flush as the single button on broke. are these simple enough to change?

guess just turn off the water, flush so empty, and unscre old and on with the new?

If you are not just changing the top part of an identical brand then unfortunately its not that simple.
You have to remove the cistern as they are held down with a large nut underneath ( if you zoom in the product image you can see the nut and threaded bottom of the valve) . This can be a real pain to do
Need some deals on decent crappers, not the bog standard ones we usual get in the UK.
Does anyone know what might cause my dual-flush button wc to occasionally not stop filling-up after pressing to flush? It seems to be perhaps I let the flush button go too quickly?

I have it happen once in maybe 50 flushes, and it only stops wasting water when I open the cistern lid and rattle things around/swish the water in there (no idea what I'm doing obvs, but something then "closes" and it stops filling + goes back to normal flushing!)?

Any advice will be very much appreciated.

I had this issue with my flush, no idea what was wrong, I just guessed something wasn't shutting on the flush so water kept running through, bought this from Screwfix and problem solved. Probably about a half hour job, shut water off, unscrew cistern from toilet, get the old one off and put all back on. Maybe should have done the fill valve while I was there too.

Thanks for your kind tip. Will look into getting one with the fill valve as advised.
Much appreciated.
