Anyone recommend somewhere near Dun Laoire to get a a Torbeck Cistern Valve unit ?

May try a fluid master is they are a straight swap?
Its for a bottom filling unit in a Roca Cistern

Cheers

dublin providers (DPL) are in deans grange i think they are on kill lane , also in deans gange are heat merchants , you can get both torbeck and fluidmaster ball valves there . if you have a fluidmaster fitted at the moment and you buy a new fluidmaster one you can replace main part without having to remove the whole thing from your cistern , the same goes for the torbeck type , but they are not compatible with each other

agreed on the riding. Becareful when ordering that you get low pressure one's most are adaptable for low and high pressure but some are solely set at high pressure

I got the kit with the little cork-screw to allow 'pressure adjustment'.
It seems to be an over-engineered joke of a product designed with built-in redundancy after 5 years...

There is something wrong there. As all irish cistern feeds are 1/2". With respect are you sure you have the right fittings. A simple solution is to bring it back and ask the chap behind he counter to explain how this goes through a standard 1/2" cistern hole.
