I am really happy with my choice to get a Fluidmaster High Performance Toilet Fill Valve. It is made with top quality materials and built to last for years of trouble free performance. I got my new fill valve after my old toilet fill valve was starting to malfunction and was not refilling my tank. My new Fluidmaster PerforMAX Toilet Fill Valve was super easy to install with its easy twist height adjustment to fit my standard 1.6 gallon toilet, then simply connecting the shank to the tank by securing the shank washer between the locknut and hand tighten until secure, be sure to leak test, then connect the refill tube to the overflow pipe and adjust the roller clamp to your desired water savings level. Detailed instructions with pictures are included, along with a toll free customer support number available M-F 5:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST. Fluidmaster gives you a 7 year warranty. I highly recommend the Fluidmaster PerforMAX Toilet Fill Valve.

Not much of a selection is out on the home improvement center shelves anymore. This used to be a well built product. Now it is all plastic with sloppy tolerances especially in the adjustment areas. I destroyed one of these valves trying to adjust the initial height adjustment because IT JUST PLAIN JAMMED. I would only recommend this product because there is practically little choice out there.

Comments about Fluidmaster Plastic Adjustable Ballcock (400A):

I actually want to give it 4.5 stars.

The Performax came pre-installed in my Kohler toilet. I have had it about two years, no major problems and it fills pretty quickly.

I recently had one minor issue when the toilet started running a long time before shutting off. I couldn't find the solution online so I called in. Great, patient, knowledgeable support/help from FluidMaster. I was talked through how to make one minor adjustment (no tools required) and in less than 10 minutes things were working perfectly.

Comments about Fluidmaster Plastic Adjustable Ballcock (400A):

Purchase this after I had two 400A Fill Valves go bad in the span of a week. Purchased the 400AH along with a new water line and turn off valve. After the install which I had to have someone do for me everything worked fine for 2 hours then it started hissing and then would not stop filling covering the whole thing and overflowing the water out of the tank. I contacted the company in two chats and all I got was a we will replace the item but not all of the ones you have purchased just two. In the past 5 years I have purchased 6 products and just keep replacing them. Company maybe listed as one of the best but customer service is a joke.

I bought this fill valve for my bathroom toiled upstairs, my old bowl system was siphoning water none stop.Once i installed this new system,water stopped siphoning and it refills bowl much faster. The installation process was very easy and straight forward,also udjusting the mechanism was easy. I am gonna buy three more of these 400AH fill valves for other toilets that I have in my house.
Thanks Fluidmaster for a great product.

About Me CONSUMER

Comments about Fluidmaster Plastic Adjustable Ballcock (400A):

I was shocked at the speed at which this float was able to fill up my toilet water level. With my older balloon type assembly I had to wait almost about 3 minutes between fill-ups to flush again, if needed. With this new assembly within 1 minute my water level is reached, and ready for the next flush. One thing I love also about this fill valve is how super quiet it is. I can barely even hear it running. Very durable, and I would definitely recommend this product to any and everyone! Wonderful and efficient product by far.

Comments about Fluidmaster Plastic Adjustable Ballcock (400A):

I have been looking at replacing the old ball fill valve in my second bath for a couple months. When I got the oppertunity to review the Fluidmaster PerforMax 400AH Fill Valve I jumped at the chance.

It was really easy to install: Just shut off the water to the toilet, maybe put a towel or bucket underneath the water hose (very recommended), empty the tank, remove the old fill valve and attach the new one. It took me maybe 10 minutes from start to finish. I do recommend a pair of pliers to help get the water hose off. You don't know if Superman decided to put it on. After crossing my fingers and checking for leaks (yay! Tip: Dry off the under side of the tank where the hose goes, then after tank has filled and you have waited for a bit, take a bit of tissue and wipe around the hose to check for a leak. The tank is usually really cold and it can be hard to check for leaks with your hand.) The new fill valve worked perfectly, No more random filling.

I absolutely recommend replacing your older systems with this new fill valve. I have been using it for the last couple weeks and we are very pleased.

About Me CONSUMER

Comments about Fluidmaster Plastic Adjustable Ballcock (400A):

I installed this product about a week ago and it was very easy installation. It will fit any size tank because the height of the fill valve an be adjusted. The only issue was that the plastic nut that fastens the fill valve to the tank was too big (the small nut has two flanges on it that stick out, and the flanges were what didn't allow for it to secure tightly to the tank base because of the hole size allowed for the nut) for my toilet, so I just used the old one. It worked great and found that adjusting the flow of the water in the level of the bowl to be a unique and great extra. It allows you to have as little or as much water in the bowl and works for low flow and normal toilets, but just that small change makes a big difference. If you fasten/slow the flow too much, it makes a weird noise (as you'd expect when you restrict water flow), but it's not annoying. It refills quick, it flushes great, it allows for some options that I wouldn't expect from from a fill valve, and so easy to install. It took less than 10 minutes to install. I would buy another one of these in a heartbeat for my other toilets and rental properties. I want more!

Comments about Fluidmaster Plastic Adjustable Ballcock (400A):

The first Fluidmaster valve I bought was 35 years old and still working properly when I sold my house. Once installed I never had to touch it. I can't ask for more than that. When one of the toilets in my current house started to fail (only 10 years old) I naturally bought a Fluidmaster to replace it. If it last 35 years I'll be long gone so I guess this one is a lifetime product for me.

About Me CONSUMER

Comments about Fluidmaster Plastic Adjustable Ballcock (400A):

Firstly, the directions were only so helpful and since I'm new to DIY plumbing, it took me longer than most people to install. Adjusted the height and connected it and in it went.

The product itself works like a charm. I don't have any issues with no enough or too much water in the commode. It has may have stopped my toilet from constantly running but only time will tell. I deducted one star from this rating because I do not see a difference in the "power" of the flush as Fluidmaster claims.

These come in handy to breathe new life into an old toilet. When the old fill valve won't shut off and you are just pouring money down the drain this can give an old toilet a 2nd chance at life. Works good when the old fill valve is the culprit.

Easy Installation, Quiet Refill, and Saves Water!

By Dave O.

from San Jose, CA

About Me CONSUMER

Comments about Fluidmaster Plastic Adjustable Ballcock (400A):

If you are looking for a durable well-made new toilet fill valve that's quiet when filling up the tank, easy to install, and saves water, then the Fluidmaster PerforMAX 400AH is the perfect solution, especially for newer toilets made after 1994 with 1.28 gallons per flush. Installation is a breeze: just turn off your water supply at the toilet valve, disconnect the nut from the toilet tank, remove your old toilet fill valve, install the new fill valve using the enclosed shank washer and locknut, attach the water supply, then attach the enclosed refill clip to the overflow pipe, adjust the water tank level and water-saving. The Fluidmaster PerforMAX 400AH comes with a 7 year warranty and is designed and engineered in the USA. A high quality product designed and built to provide years of trouble free toilet fill valve performance. I highly recommend the Fluidmaster PerforMAX 400AH.
