"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."
"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."
"The flush mechanism work brilliantly and is extremely easy to fit (especially if you've taken apart a toilet cistern before). It replaced the old lever/syphon flush and works brilliantly. The only draw back is the 'lever' switch looks like cheap chromed plastic which if you're replacing a nice metal lever does look bad. If they can get something better here then it will be a 5 star product all the way.
(Reliability hard to review but I have used this make many times before and had no issues so I'm assuming this will be just as good)"
"There is a loud bang when using the half flush, the full flush is fine but when the valve closes after a half flush - "bam!" The item was easy to fit and replaces an old fashioned lever flush with dual flush option but the loud noise is a little worrying."
"easy to assemble in the cistern but supplied with a real cheap piece of tat lever, it came assembled in it's bag and was done up so tight the lever broke while trying to seperate all the parts for fitting, wish i had bought a different one now!!"
"I fitted this some time ago, fitting was a piece of cake cant really go wrong that's the good bit.
The problem i have from day one is the handle when flushed half or full will not return to central position so water keeps running until you center manually. ( lads coming in at 3am after a few wont do this) No matter what i do the whole handle moves when flushed, i fitted mine without the rubber sleeve that was supplied, as way to tight with it but the more i tighten the nut at rear the worse the handle plays up, i personally would prefer to pay extra for a metal handle as the plastic is quite flimsy. Main body works perfect and the adjustments are easy just a shame on the handle. Should i take it back ? of course but i can be bothered to strip drive back and replace."
"While this flush works perfectly on a full flush it emits a loud bang when the valve closes on a half flush, loud enough to waken the whole household, I have now removed this item and await a reply from Fluidmaster"
