Hi,

Yes the float in those type of cisterns is different to the standard type.

Are you sure that the float is the problem as the float operates a valve?

It sounds more like the valve is faulty.

I'd suggest either getting a plumber to have a look or contact saniflow for a repair kit.

A lot of the big manufactures have web sites with fitting diagrams and a spare parts list so you may be able to order direct or they will have a list of suppliers.
