    The comments here seem to be from 2004 to 2006. My supply center tells me that AS has now solved these problems. Does anyone have any experience with the newer flush system.
    There are sixteen pages of comments.
    They did improve the flush valve, but if you read the most current comments, you will see that the "New" and improved flapper is developing blisters in the first year.

    But mainly what the plumbers don't like, is the shear bulk of the beast.
    That, and the sloppy way it's made, and the fact the A/S will ship broken lids and repaired bowls as if they were grade "A" new stuff.
    We are tired of being A/S assembly line checkers,
    Some of this stuff never should have left the factory.



    A factory chipped Champion tank lid. The chip had been discovered at the factory, so they sanded it a bit, and boxed it along with the tank. I guess "new" doesn't mean perfectly new.
