    I wish they would start using fluidmaster ballcocks.

    Personally I'm partial to the Korky. I have put Korky's in all 4 of my toilets because I got tired of the noisy, leaky, squeaky Mansfield ballcock/float fill valves.

    I have noticed that there is a bit of a religion about Fluidmasters though for some reason. they always looked dodgy to me, and way too cheap for me to consider something reliable. Am I missing something about them?

    I've installed alot of fluidmasters with few problems or complaints. My "alot" means over 200 of them a year.

    I don't know about a religion, but the Fluidmaster 400A has been around for a long time and they seem to work well. Not a pro - am just a homeowner, but I've replaced quite a few old style ballcocks with the Fluidmaster over the last 20+ years and never had one fail.
