    I would appreciate advise on what bottom fed valve I could buy to replace old ballcock valve which wont shut off and keeps overflowing.
    Told fluid master very good but what model can fit in old type cistern as current flushing still ok.
    Is it difficult to fit ? do i need to use sealant or boss white ?
    Should I get plastic or brass?

    Many thanks for any help given
    cheers
    Phil.

    Get brass as you can't really cross thread them , you will only need a 1/2 fibre washer for the connector no sealant or anything else , and they are really easy to fit

    When you take the old one out, just make sure the internal hole/face in the cistern is nice and clean and dry before fitting the new one.
