Goodbye Flushmate~Hello American Standard Champion 4

This Flushmate was the second one we have replaced. We got them when they were the ‘hottest’ thing. They both proved to be disappointments.

They have a compressed air tank which also holds the water in a tank inside the porcelain tank. When they start leaking, the water starts collecting in the bottom of the porcelain tank. That’s not a good thing. We replaced the Flushmate we had in the main floor bathroom a few years ago, and now the basement one started leaking, so we decided to just replace it. (photo borrowed from web to show what the compression tank looks like). I see now that they have discontinued this series.

We decided to get the elongated bowl, and chair height model again, like the main floor toilet. This one cost less than half of what the Kohler I bought cost. Go figure…. AND, I think it flushes better too.

We bought it Saturday afternoon (last week), Louie had help carrying it downstairs on Tuesday night, and Wednesday night, he installed it. My hero! Secret telling smile Red heart

Since we only have two bathrooms, hopefully, we are done dealing with toilets for a long, long time!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

I think I remember when you replaced the last one! I had trouble with the one in my bathroom this weekend and Jerry has to replace the "insides" again....just did it about 3 months ago but whatever brand he used didn't work right from the beginning. We made a flying trip home (1100 miles in all) for a grandson's college graduation. We only have 2 more weeks here at the mission then I'll be home - very ready to work in my flower beds! blessings, marlene
