I haven't bought one yet but will be doing so. I'm a rocket scientist therefore I will be unscrewing the old float and putting it on the new arm. I think it is wonderful that a manufacturer is making a system where you can recycle parts instead of sending all the old bits to landfill (and charging us for the new). Well done Flomasta.
Basic, good value but doesn't come with float!

All similar valves have a small float to lift the valve arm as the water level rises, ultimately to shut-off supply when the tank is full. The instructions show a balloon type float as part of the assembly.
Yet no float in the pack. Same for all packs in the shop.
Nothing on the packaging to say it needs a float...
Otherwise it's fine but really annoying to have to find a float from somewhere. Hence only 3 stars.
Product works but nut is abysmal.

The nut to secure this under the cistern is a very large diameter nut, my adjustable spanner was unable to fit it had to go out buy another tool to fit it. (whilst family waited with crossed legs and no toilet).
Works and very customisable would probably fit most cisterns.
