Do they still make the Imperial Impulse Dual Flush Toilet Flush Valve?
People often ask us, is the impulse Imperial flush valve still made or manufactured? The short answer to that question, is no. However, don’t be disheartened. There is no need to pull out your old toilet and throw it away. Here at Toiletspares.com.au, we can sell you a replacement kit which will upgrade your toilet with a more modern style of flush valve.
Most toilet manufacturers do not manufacture the valves that go in the cistern. Normally they purchase these from specialist companies. There are only a limited number of toilet valve manufacturers which means that they are very large and stable companies.
Toilet fashions change regularly. Styles, colours, and design are all somewhat fickle. There is far more competition amongst toilet manufacturers than among valve makers. Toilet manufacturers are consequently more likely to go out of business.
Imperial was one toilet manufacturer which made its own dual flush toilet valve, the Impulse. Consequently, when they went out of business, people with Imperial toilets were left without an original replacement.
The solution is to install a modern valve from a large, established valve manufacturer which is likely to be making the same valves in 10 or 20 years’ time (valves don’t change very often).
We recommend the Bestter flush valve which is high quality, robust and competitively priced. It also comes with a wide variety of buttons in most shapes and sizes for most cisterns.
We sell the Imperial Impulse replacement valves in a kit which includes the valve, the button and a foam washer. The washer fits between the cistern and the pan in a close coupled suite. This is all you will need to do the job.
The operation entails removing the cistern from the pan. This is fairly simple and is demonstrated in our video HERE:
To purchase the kit, simply hover over the “flush valves” section on the blue ribbon above. Click on “Imperial” on the drop-down menu and chose the valve which suits your button hole.
