I was pretty sceptical of this valve; the adjustable size with their twist-lock adjustment seemed like it might be flimsy, the lack of a float made me doubt it’s effectiveness, and the claims of being whisper quiet… I mean, it’s a toilet, it’s gonna make some noise when you refill it. You can’t pour water into a porcelain tank noiselessly, unless it’s filling it at a very slow dribble. Also, it was the cheapest option, which always makes me worry.
To my surprise, it’s been an effective replacement valve. The twist-lock is sturdier than it appears, the internal water level shutoff works well (although if the openings for the shutoff become clogged from sediments in your water, it might lose effectiveness. Something to watch!) As for the noise, I didn’t find it louder than the old valve, but I can’t say I noticed a discernable reduction in fill noise. But, it’s not louder, so I’ll call that a win.
It’s quick and easy to install, with clear directions, and all necessary included parts. Took me about 15 minutes, start to finish. Heck, I’ve spent longer on a toilet than that, and I wasn’t doing repairs, if you know what I mean 😉
