Thinking of replacing valve in toilet cistern And was having a look in DIY
stores.It is a bottom entry fitting and I notice the 'arm' on all the ones
I see is PVC.Can anyone please tell me what the red removable gadget on the
arm is for,also the arms are all too long for my cistern,Is there just one
The fitting I have at present has a metal arm.Thanks for any advice on this
The red 'thingy' replaces the white 'thingy' already fitted inside if you
are installng on a mains fed supply. Arm lengths vary, keep looking until
you find the right size or go to a decent plumbers / independant DIY
(recommend Melvyn Clarke at Carshalton Surrey if you live near!)
Buy a Fluidmaster one instead -- no long arm and ball.
Fast silent refill. Positive shutoff with no trickling
However, make sure you purge the pipe of any crud as described
in the instructions, and make sure the overflow can carry the
water out at full inlet speed by holding the float submerged
until the water level rises as far as it can.
