    Hi all,
    Our toilet cistern fill valve won't cut off when the level reaches where it should. I replaced the diaphragm a couple of months ago due to very slow filling and now this issue started today.

    So, I guess there is something not right with the valve - is this a suitable replacement ?

    My next challenge is the houses previous owners decided to box in the isolation valve just beneath the cistern so I have to try and remove some tiles to gain access! :(

    Thanks.
    Anthony

    For reference, it's a SIAMP valve, at least 13 years old

    Yes the fluidmaster will do, others may tell you to get the one with the brass shank.

    Thanks.
    What would be the advantage of the brass shank ?

    Less likely to cross thread the nut when tightening. Thats all.
