Just finished this install. It was pretty easy and so far no issues.

You have to take the tank off which is a little annoying.

You can tell it is using a lot less water for the "1" and it is entirely adjustable for both "1" and "2" how much water you want it to use. We have it set to use the absolute least amount of water possible for "1" and it flushes fine. For "2"... it is in the middle, no issues yet. We probably won't mess with that

disclaimer: I have no affiliation with this company. Just saw something like it on This Old house. I could not find the one they used on the TV show so I got this one.

While I am sure this will pay back relatively quickly it is really more about conserving. If I had it my way I would probably send all of my sink, dishwasher, shower, clothes washer to gray water tanks....

It claims to save 30 gallons of water, per day, for the average family?

I'm thinking the old saying, "If it's brown flush it down, but if it's yellow let it mellow," might be a better water saver.

we do sometimes but for me it gets to be a little smelly and you could also combine that strategy with the 1/2 flush.

if i get around to it i will measure how much water we are using on the 1/2 flush now.

i also don't know how often we (2 people) use the toilet per day. it would be interesting to keep track of an average day and see what we actually will save. i would say easily 10X per day per person (pregnant woman and an athlete!) So if we go from 1.6 to 0.6 GPF thats 20 gallons.

You'll have to pardon my being amused by the fact that your user name is "Joe Moving", and we're talking about flushing toilets...

well the cable that actuates the flusher started binding up, and then the flush lever broke off. we'll see what the mfgr has to say.

So, in NJ the price of water is what, $.0025/gallon? So you save $.04 per day? You need two per house, or three? So the break even point is 3 years or so?

We save probably 20 gallons a day at 10 flushes a day 2 people, 1 gallon saved per #1 flush.

I'm quite in favor of saving water and everything else.

Thanks for the update. The faulty parts is a bit disconcerting. Did you notice an appreciable difference in your water bill?
