Morning,

As the subject suggests, is there such a thing as the quite fill valve for urinal cisterns? I can only find ones for toilet cisterns.

The best thing I've come up with is putting a disposable glove over the thing with the fingers cut out. Its a bit of luck no one sees it because it not the best looking.

There is always that one splash of water that never goes in the cistern and i know if I leave it it will eventually rot the wall.

Not to sure what set up you are on about? but you can try the foam type lagging? or if its the sound of water running/dripping into the system and causing splashes? try to connect a pipe of some sort to go straight into the cistern? when we had solenoid valves, we used to attach/connect a small length of rubber pipe and place it directly into the cistern= no running/dripping noise or splashes, if you get my drift?

Turning the water pressure down a bit would make it quieter, but that would slow down the auto flush.
Due to the present financial situation, the light at the end of the tunnel has been temporarily switched off.

Can you not just put a lid on the cistern to calm the noise and catch the splash

Yes that clear plastic tube is what i want, I just don't want to buy a whole valve for get it. I was hoping there would be something on the market for urinal cisterns.

depends how big the vale outlet is but try a bit of 15mm poly pipe cut to length so it wedges in tight then just notch out the bottom so it can fill from the bottom of the tank that should work [Like.png]

This what I've got. the water doesn't really come out in a nice flow and the bits are relatively new. As a result the water jumps and splurts about. I know I could cut a bigger hole but I don't think that will really solve the issue of random water jumping out.

If not ill just keep the glove for now and when I repair the wall after the it dries I might but an elbow isolation valve to control the flow, and just stick it in the cistern.

Hi, yes same sort of fitment we had, so what we did was find a piece of rubber hose to fit and attached to the valve outlet and at length placed it directly into the cistern level, stopped the splashes, you could not hear the water running/dripping, not sure about the valve noise? good luck, [Neutral.png]
