In response to Re: Hushflo replacement toilet fill valve
My daughter has horses and the horses have water buckets. Whenever I come across one of those valves, Delta also makes the same one, I remove it and save it for the horse water bucket. They are nice for that use because there is no float for the horse to play with. They are useless for any other application. If they do not shut off there is no way to manuall operate them and if the water is shut off anywhere to the house or neighborhood they are a possible source of contamination because they are not anti siphon protected.

: It is time to replace the fill valve on an old 3.5gpf American Standard. I was checking through the fill valves available at the hardware store and found one that looks interesting. It is a very small valve made by Hushflo. The attendant told me that it works by sensing the water pressure above the valve to determine how full the tank is, so it knows when to stop.

: Frankly, I'm sick of ballcock valves, this one is small and sleek, hopefully more quiet too :-)

: Anyone had experience with them? I found a picture of it to illustrate.
