    Can anyone ID this type of cistern push button for me please? Its in one of my not so favourite outlaws toilets. I would rather just get a new one rather than do a full syphon swap if you know what I mean.


    If its obsolete, are there any alternative buttons that would do the job? Thank you.

    That's a Wirquin mws00 flush, not sure if you can get the buttons on their own, if they're paying for parts, get a whole new flush and use the button off it :D

    I particularly like how the previous installer sawed the top off the overflow tube to get the button in :)

    Just to let anyone know, - on that old type Wirquin flush valve you just need to replace with the new type Wirquin kit.
    The new flush valve has identical base to the old type and will just fit on and mean you get new flush valve with cable and new dual button all in kit and from most merchants

    I was thinking same but unsure mk1 was compatible with current. As I found out hard way a few months back with ano ideal standard syphon... nearly £70 wasted for a bloody syphon

    It was when the button on a old type needed replaced that got me thinking. I realised the button was same as always had been and I noticed the flush valve base looked same as new Wirquin base, even though old valve was entirely different.
    I then reasoned that Wirquin had made the new to adapt, which would make a lot of sense.
    Probably often easier to therefore just buy a Wirquin kit from nearest merchant and just click it all in place - and you get a new fill valve in the kit, should you want to also replace it.
