|In response to Re: Consumer product reviews of the American Standard Champion toilet|
: : Although I read the comments about the Champion which are posted above, we went ahead with having one installed, figuring that since we were purchasing one with the new rounded seat, that a new design tank would accompany the bowl. Well, that didn't happen. Our tank is dated August 2003, and you guessed it - it leaks!! Sometimes it leaks quietly, and sometimes it is very noisy. We did pay our plumber for the installation, and now are awaiting a call back from him as to his success with the local American Standard representative for either replacement parts, or a new tank. I am going to phone today to ask for a new tank, as that seems to be the way to go via Tanya R. follow-up of January 20, 2004 on this site.
: : Will post a follow-up.
HI! Well, I took the tank lid off and watched the mechanisms work while I flushed the toilet, and the clunk/thunk is caused by the long plastic piece which rises and then falls hard! immediately. There is no way to control its fall with the lever. I am going to phone our plumber to ask him to talk with the Am St rep about this. I am even more concerned now about the longevity of the tank as it endures the continuing clunk/thunks. Will let you know. Claudia P
