"My customer asked me to fit one to an old handle type toilet , He thought it wold have to be a push button but I found this one with a handle . looks so much better as the button has to stand very proud due to the adapter for a small front hole, He was very pleased with the look and performance . Very easy to fit and adjust. Only gave *** for reliability as only time will tell."
"used to replace an old syphon flush with broken diafragm. had to shave a bit off the squre edges of the lever to get it through the ceramic cystern as hole was too small. Should make sevicing in future far easier. No need to dismantle whole loo to change the rubber seal. And east to set half and full flush level, so could save some cash on water meter."
"I was very impressed with this conversion kit. Fits easily, and the cable operation is very light. It was particularly easy to set the flush levels via the sliders.
If your cistern has the old-style ball valve, you may find that the ball fouls the cable. If so, a fill valve such as the Opella Torbeck solves the problem. Has a very small float that operates quite close to the fill valve shaft."
"Give your old LOO a new lease of life! Ive fitted several of these now with no problem. It is quick and easy and can be used on close coupled or separate cistern installations. And for anyone with joint problems and an old loo that refuses to flush without vigorous cranking these are a must. Just a gently push of the handle is all that is required. And whats more the dual flush action and the option to set the flush to a lower use of water without the need to install water savers in the cistern mean they can save on water too!"
"I had recently fitted a new lever operated valve, which broke because of high and rough usage. This unit was identical in fitting in the cistern, but the operating function was a very light, wire operated system, with two functions. With the family now educated in the light action I can see this lasting a long time!"
"Before I write the review, THE NUT ON THE HANDLE IS A LEFT HAND THREAD, it's in the instructions but us blokes don't read them. I was going to replace my mono flush toilet untill I saw this, really good flush both ways, and no noise as others had sugested, buy with confidence"
"I needed a dual flush that replaced a tradtional lever with 25mm hole. This was just right, much neater than the push button version as that had to sit proud of the cistern. A little bit noisy but I think that is the inlet valve - was being tight and didn't replace. Purchased by click and collect which worked very smoothly"
"I needed a siphon with a handle but was limited to the amount of available space in a poorly design cheap old toilet. This did the trick. Works well. Fitted the item a couple of months ago, had no call backs."
"Very easy to fit even for a novice. Works well. I like the overflow feature. No problem with noise as reported by others, I think the type of cistern makes a difference. Good piece of kit for the price"
"Easy to fit and less fiddly than the push button version. It does make some noise on half flush but it is not excessive. I suspect people who complain about this could have a problem with the way the cistern tank is fitted to the wall transmiting noise. Don't let it put you off!"
"Neat conversion for a (nearly) traditional look toilet. This type of valve does 'clonk' when closing on part flush, but this is not obtrusive - adjust the water level to the minimum needed for a good full flush, adjust the full & half flush settings (easy), minimise the 'clonk'. It does go straight to full flow when you press (or raise) the lever, so efficient flush is achieved. In the event of failure, the whole mechanism can be taken out (like a lightbulb) and swiftly replaced without removing the cistern. I have fitted several of these recently, customers all pleased."
"Light lever mechanism making it very easy to use and suitable to the elderly. The fixing of the lever to the side of the cistern wasn't the best though. It came with only a small washer set and because I was replacing the siphon from an "old" cistern the hole was too big and needed some modification to secure it in position properly. Works great now and I'm sure it will for quite some time."
"Bought one at the strat of 2014. Fitting was easy, althought I had to adapt the cistern opening to take the lever. Now September 14 and the flust system is sticking, causing a constant water flow into toilet. I've removed the twist off unit and cleaned it, but still persisting? luckily its easy to replace."
"I had to replace the syphon in a very old toilet (over 50 years old). The toilet is used frequently and the flapper valves seem to fail every few years. It is an irritating job so I looked for something that would be easier maintain and save water as well. This product fitted the bill perfectly. As my cistern has a side handle the button type would be difficult to use so I chose the lever type. It seems well made and easy to service. My only criticism is that the handle is chrome effect plastic. It looks rather cheap and a proper metal one would be much better."
"My customers prefer the appearance of these to the push-button version, though you do sometimes have to use a bit of 'lateral thinking' to adapt the lever fitting to fit holes in the cistern which are outside the range of the kit supplied."
