: Hmmm. They would really have a winner if they installed their "bad" SmartValve fill valve and their "bad" Tower flush valves in the same toilet tanks. You might have to replace the whole insides before you even install it.

This appears to let the seal conform better to irregularities. For those not familiar with the problem, the original flush towers leak intermittently. This may cause the fill valve to turn on every 15 minutes to every 6 hours. If your toilet is used more frequently than the refill rate, you may never notice the flush valve leak.
