    I know, B&Q *!! I need some spares, anyone know who would stock Siamp spares, namely a push button assembly. I've tried Lunns, but no joy.

    It's for a wee auld wifey that stays down the road from me. You know, nip in on the way home, payment being a cup of tea & a scone.

    That's very kind DAB, but I've ordered one from the supplier detailed above.
    Thanks guys for your assistance, you have just restored my faith in human nature or it could just be the seriously good skunk I was smoking last night.

    You can get the diaphragm (which invariably splits leading to ultra-slow fill) from the manufacturers (SIAMP)The part is 1.20 GPB, the postage and admin. is 8.50 GBP.

    PS - B and Q do sell replacement diaphrams (including the "screw in the centre" versions, but sadly not the SIAMP

    Oh I would BOA, but the CC bolts are as rusty as *, so the cistern is staying where it is!!

    We've all been there with these 'thank you' jobs.

    Worthwhile knowing the warehouse staff in these places. It's surprising how helpful they can be with spares from returned goods where the innards are as good (or as bad) as they need be for the job.

    Siamp is the number one supplier to the UK market for cistern fittings.
    All Siamp cistern fittings supplied to the UK market are WRAS approved and come with a 10 year guarantee.
    The fact that for the last 10 years we have supplied Twyfords, Vitra, jaccuzzi, Ideal, Shires, and now supply PTS, Plumbcenter etc goes to show that Siamp is not a cheap, lesser quality product.

    Joker. Try getting a spare for that stuff easily & quickly. You can get them but they want £35.00 for drop valve when a Macdee or a Fluidmaster is half that and I think better. Ideal Standard don't use them do they?

    Its actualy very easy..
    Since 1999 when the European regulations changed to where European manufacturers could sell into the UK market their top flush cisterns opposed to our lever operated cisterns, just over 9 millions push button operated cisterns have been sold. We know through this independent market reports, we also know the number of single and dual flush valves we have supplied to the UK market, approximately 4.6 millions.

    So considering that Macdee, Thomas Dudley, Twyfords, Vitra, Ideal, Laufen either all purchase Siamp or have done over the last ten years.
    Also, Siamp products are also available through Plumbcenter, PTS, Wickes, Grahams, Travis Perkins, Focus... etc etc

    I gthink you will be hard to find somewhere where Siamp products are not available, either through a direct account with us, or through one of our distributor networks
