American Standard FloWise® Dual Flush Elongated Toilet

Posted

Pros: small flush stops singing in 9 seconds

Cons: perpetually covered with tire streaks

First, I'll explain the four stars on installation.  I've installed about a dozen toilets over the years.  This one needed the ballcock removed in order to get the mounting bolt into the left side of it.  (Better than having to remove the whole flush mechanism, adjust the handles, and various others I've had to do with a no-name brand, worse than spin-the-nuts-on of a Crane Radcliffe 13-litre...)

In our bathroom renovations, it took me a month and a half to get around to installing this, and less than a week to want to smash it to bits with a twelve-pound sledge.  Any water-saver toilet that requires 3 litres for a liquid flush and 24-36 litres (four to six hits of the button) to dispose of a solid flush is not saving any water at all.  If you do not get your "deposit" absolutely centred in the postage-stamp sized puddle of water in the bottom of the bowl, it looks like someone drop-kicked the chocolate cake.  Give me back my old Foremost, 1989 $60 can that is covered with stains, calcium and the labels the previous owners never removed. 

After a long argument with Home Depot to get them to take it back ("We don't take back used toilets for sanitary reasons..."  So I just paid $200 for something that's useless?)  they agreed to exchange for a Triumph Cadet 3 six-litre.  I have to take the tank back on that one - the flapper is leaking.
