1. How Flush ‘n Sparkle Works

The Flush ‘n Sparkle™ system hangs inside the tank and feeds chlorinated water directly down the overflow pipe and into the toilet bowl, eliminating any prolonged exposure to chlorine that causes decay.

If you are thinking that there are similar products out there, get this; unlike similar products, the Flush ‘n Sparkle™ system’s patented design traps the back-flow of chlorine gasses that could damage the fill valve. This patented design eliminates the off-gassing issue and keeps your toilet components safe.

3. Dangers of Chlorine Cleaners

The danger of drop-in tablets is called off-gassing. As the tablets disintegrate, Chlorine gasses collect in the tank below the lid. Chlorine gas is highly corrosive and can weaken the tensile strength of the fill valve and other tank components that sit above the water line. Off-gassing can lead to severe external leaks and potential property damage as well.
