    Hi Terry,



    Thanks for the info. I was afraid that the waste might catch on that flashing. It doesn't seem to want to easily come off, so I'll leave it alone.

    I know you are not enamored...

    Cadert 3 Flowise flashing in trapway

    I just picked up an unopened Cadet 3 Flowise Right Height, 1.28 Gal flush off of craigslist. On the bottom where the water exits, there is a small amount of glazed flashing that seems to be there. ...

    My Cadet 3 Elongated Flowise (1.28 Gallon), standard height (made in Mexico) does not seem to accumulate any brown on the sides (no matter the source type), nor does it seem to have any detectable...

    I have a Cadet 3 Elongated Flowise (Flowise meaning 1.28 Gallons). I wrestled with whether a 1.28 gallon would sufficiently flush, and finally decided, based upon reading lots of messages and...

    Hi Terry,



    What is the purpose of holding down the handle?

    It definitely puts additional water down into the bowl (which may rinse the bowl a bit more), but the final level should pretty...

    Hi Terry,



    Not doubting that in the least. I always look at many independent "Intelligent" reviews and opinions (leaves CR out I guess :D ). And if a plumber, I would never risk a callback or...

    Hi Terry,



    Unless I'm mistaken, a Dalton is 1.6 gallons, so that is comparing an apple to an orange since I wanted a 1.28 gallon or better.

    The Drake bone, elongated delivered to me (Boston,...

    The $275 was for a bone (not white) color, Cadet 3 Flowise (1.28 gallons, not 1.6 gallons) elongated, standard height. The item was in the catalog, but not in the store, so it needed to be ordered,...

    Not to disagree, but my experience is quite the opposite. I installed a Cadet 3 Flowise (1.28 gallon/flush) elongated, standard height, which has a 3" pipe to 4" toilet flange.

    I have one user...

    If you are measuring water flow into the house with a household water meter, it would include all water to the toilet. Meter should still be as accurate as meters are (no idea of their reliability,...

    My water meter measures in .02 cubic feet increments and is resolvable down to .005 cubic feet, so it is relatively easy to tell my water usage per flush. This may not be true for all places...

    Do Toilets really use water as specified?

    I was curious if most individuals or people in the trade actually measure the usage of a toilet they installed?

    If so, is it by reading the water meter before and after a flush, or by placing...

    I'm glad you solved your problem, but I'll relate a similar sounding noise problem and solution in case it helps others.

    I had a relatively new house, and the bathroom that was seldom used had...

    Some additional info for those reading.

    1st, I was using the original American Standard Flapper, not the Korky Cadet 3 replacement, so that is not the reason for the difference.

    The original...

    This sounds reasonable. Any suggestions to the best way to restrict the water volume to the bowl refill, ideally (but not absolutely needed) without increasing noise?


    That and the supposedly...

    Since I received no responses to my question, I decided to reduce the water in the tank by taking a plastic peanut jar, filling it with rocks (so it would not float) and sealing it with the top. The...
