    Identify flush valve

    Hi, would anyone be able to identify the make/model of this dual flush valve? It has no identifying numbers on it at all, however the separate fill unit has some numbers that might help someone in the know. It would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    Flush cleaning only half the bowl

    Hi, I have a newly installed toilet but the flush only pushes water around half of the toilet bowl, no water gets to the front. Is the an issue with the toilet, cistern or pressure (water pressure in house is good)? And how can I get this issue fixed? Many thanks

    Power flush vs passive filter

    In 95% of instances the much cheaper/simpler Magnacleanse type filters seem to be really effective. You obviously need a working circulating pump but has anyone used one where a boiler couldn't generate hot water? Do people still buy powered units? I had planned to buy one but haven't really...

    The flush pipe connector will not fully insert. The first 2 flanges are completely in, the third partially. There is not much room between the pipe and the input. When I remove the pipe to check, the connector has not slipped up the pipe. I marked the pipe to ensure it has gone in as far...

    Hi all, I've got a problem with a Gerberit pneumatic dual flush valve. It has two buttons on the actuator plate, when pressed individually they do nothing, you now need to press them both at the same time in order to get it to flush.
