What is a Fill Valve?
A float attached to the fill valve drops when the toilet is flushed, which in turn opens the valve that is connected to the cold water supply pipe.
As the water level in the cistern rises, so does the float on the fill valve. Once the float reaches a preset height (determined by the internal overflow level on your flush valve.) the valve is closed by the float.
There are various types of Fill Valve
- Side entry
- Bottom entry fixed height
- Bottom entry adjustable fill valves, and these can have either brass or plastic shanks at the bottom
Features of a FlushKING Fill Valve include
- Anti Syphon, preventing backflow of the water into your water supply to avoid contamination
- Hand tight, no tool installation
- Consistent quiet flow
- Easy twist water level adjustment

The Environment Agency has developed a methodology for identifying and classifying relative levels of water stress in water company areas in England. The Government has used this map to designate areas of serious water stress for the purpose of accelerating water metering.
