Thanks Irish for a constructively critical review. Just for info, the valve is available as a "flsuh only" option, without the filling valve.Irish said:I fitted mine yesterday thanks to you and to Wirquin for the chance to get and review it.
For the install its a pretty standard easy flush valve to install, although in saying that the quality of the pictures is really bad. In my mind it would be better to give diagrams rather than poor resolution pictures. The valve itself seems decent quality.
Major plus for me was that it came with a new universal close coupled kit, was surprised to find that.
I like the fact it came with a new fov but I think maybe an option without one would be good too.
Bad points are n batteries!! come on we're plumbers and plumbers merchants don't stock batteries! someone else has mentioned this in a previous post and it's also the reason it took me so long to fit it.
The really bad feature for me is the actual push button mechanism itself, that silicone ring is going to get manky after awhile, it's quite a bad feature, it looks cheap and nasty to me! why not secure the mechanism like a standard push button ??? and the colour I would imagine this product would appeal to someone who's superclean and clinical so I'd imagine for them, this lid would be a huge no no.
conclusion for me is, that this is a good product in general but because of the push button mechanism aesthetics I wouldn't put another one in my house
