I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one out there that is more conscious of where my money is going. I’ve changed my light bulbs to the new compact florescent bulbs, been aware of the air conditioner/heater running and made sure I’m only washing clothing that is dirty. Guess what, now I can even save money when I flush my toilet!
This amazing little mechanism was really easy to install. I’m no plumber, One2Flush really made this installation process fool proof. There’s instruction photos on the box, a list of step by step instructions, AND this YouTube Video for visual step by step instructions. When I see a list of instructions I tend to put that project on the back burner so I’m really glad there was a video. The packaging also puts photos of the exact tools I needed, again, much better than a list of tool names. I would suggest an entire roll of paper towel, spray cleaner, and gloves if you have a 25+ year old toilet, like I do. It’s pretty icky in the tank!
The hardest part for me was step 3. You have to “remove the old seal, unscrew the large nut at base of old valve.” The plumber screwed mine on really tight, so tight that I had to make a quick run to the hardware store for a new channel lock wrench because the one I had didn’t have enough teeth (grip) to it. This step takes a little more elbow grease than anticipated, however; after I got that last piece out of the tank it was smooth sailing for installation. As you can see, the 25+ year old toilet had some icky residue.
Here is my One2Flush installed, I have a clean tank now. :) My total installation time of the One2Flush was about 5 minutes. It took longer to disassemble, clean my nasty tank, and remove the old crumbling parts than expected, but my toilet is ancient and clearly hasn’t had the inside cleaned since 1985.
Notice, in the photo below, the nice little stickers above the flush handle that were included to help educate my guests when they need to “go.” All they’ll need to do (as stated in the display card also given to me) is push the handle one way for “one,” the other way for the “other.”
With the One2Flush, I’ll be saving at least 420 gallons of water a month!!! Before, I was flushing 3.5 gallons every time I went to the bathroom. Now, I flush about 1.5 gallons when I go #1, and about 3 gallons when I go #2. I’m saving water and I’m no longer flushing money down the toilet…pun intended.
