May in Southern California is a great month. The weather starts warming up and the sun comes out (for those who don’t live in Socal, the weather will warm up eventually), people start talking about DIY projects and getting ready for summer. It makes you want to improve something. Well, it may not be first on your list of projects but fixing that toilet is an important one! Whether it’s running, leaking or your spouse is nagging you to do something about it because the water bill is too high, it’s time to lift the lid and see what’s going on.
Now, depending on the problem, Fluidmaster has a solution for you. I’m focusing on our newest solution, the DUO FLUSH! Our brand new product was featured by This Old House magazine as one of the best new home products of 2011. The DUO FLUSH ™ can solve several problems at once; it can save you water, replace your leaky flapper and save you money all in about 10 minutes. You’ll never need another flapper. It is super easy to install using the instructions, but the basic idea is that your toilet can become a water saving dual flush toilet by simply snapping the DUO FLUSH™ valve into place on top of the existing flush valve. Converting your toilet is easy because it fits more toilets than any other conversion kit. It may look a little strange when you first pull it out of the box, but trust me, you’ll love it. The dials are easy to configure and the handle is easy to operate. It maximizes your toilet’s performance and water saving efforts, saving more than 15,000 gallons a year! All you have to do once you’ve installed it is use your judgment and pull up on the handle to use less water in a flush (we call it a half flush) or push down to get the full flush.
Now if you’re feeling like “Super Handy-man” and don’t mind spending a couple of extra minutes playing in the toilet tank (here at Fluidmaster we call it playing since it is what we do) you can turn your common commode into a high performing porcelain throne with a quicker and quieter refill if you swap your existing fill valve with a PerforMax™ fill valve. This installs just as easily as the 400A fill valve and is designed to work specifically with the DUO FLUSH ™ making it the best performing dual flush system on the market. The roller clamp allows you to regulate the bowl water to avoid inadequate or excessive bowl refills. Gone are the days when your guests jump every time your noisy toilet flushes. Hello to the days when your guests are impressed with how you are taking “green” to the next level with your dual flush technology.
There you go, an upgraded, water saving, high performing toilet in about a half hour. You can keep your environmentally concerned kids happy, your spouse happy, and/or yourself happy with just a few of Fluidmaster’s products for your toilet. The best part about using Fluidmaster trim is NOT having to think about toilet problems. You can now use that money you’re saving on your water bill to do something FUN! Just another way Fluidmaster enhances not only your toilet’s performance but your life as well, one full or half flush at a time.
