I found a place that has 3 dual flush kits. All my other toilets have 3 flush valves.
Water Saver
Has anyone tried these?

I ordered one of these today I will review it once I have it installed.

I installed the new flush valve that was a normal height. It will now let me put the lid on the back again.

I also ran a flat blade screwdriver roughly around the flush handle hole a few times. This made the new handle flush and fit nicely.

It is working now I just have to give it some time to see if I have to do more adjustment.
I work from home so this gets flushed more than a normal so this will really save some water.

Looks good. Let us know how you like it after a couple days.

This is one of those why did I not do this a long time ago. I have it adjusted just right now. The flush works great and gets the job done every time. The double handle looks good and is easy to use.
I have the 3” version coming for the kid’s bathroom if I like that one I will get one for the bath.

That is great. I love finding those kind of things.

Its kind of like the showerhead I just installed at my future in law's house. They had a 2.5 gpm showerhead and I just replaced it with a Niagara Conservation 1.5 gpm handheld one. I didn't ask, I just changed it out. They love it because it actually works better, AND they're using 40% less hot water now. The showerhead will pay for itself within the first month of use even. Its a win win thing.

I will look at my water bill once I am all done. Low flow shower heads the intelligent hot water circulation system and the flush toilets should add up each month. I am on a septic system so it never hurts to put less through that system.

I like saving water a precious resource.

Yes that is the same one I bought from Home depot for $19.98 ours had it in stock.

I really like this handle I only wish they would make this kit for a 3” valve.

Home Depot also just carries just the new handle. $8.97

I hate to be negative but I am about to return my Dual Flush Converter.

HydroRight Dual Flush Converter-HYR271 at The Home Depot

I am getting tired of trying to adjust it to get it to seal properly. I can still hear the tank refill once every 10 minutes. If it is going to be that difficult to seal initially, I don't even want to know what it is going to be like in 5 years. Also, like others, I cannot seem get enough water to make the "small" flush actually fully flush the toilet. Perhaps I will revisit something like this in the future but, for right now, I prefer reliability and hassle free over savings.

The HydroRight Dual Flush Converter is just a very good product. I have had no issues with it at all.
Is yours ruff where it seals?

I bought two Water Saver for a 3” valve and the handles are really bad .
I have had HydroRight Dual Flush longer and the handle flushes exactly the same as it did day one but the water savers have been getting worse as they get older.
