The HydroRightDual Flush Valve quickly and easily converts a standard toilet into a dual flush toilet. The quick-flush setting uses significantly lower water volume for liquids and paper, while the full-flush setting uses the normal amount of water for solids. Designed for drop-in installation, the HydroRightcan be installed without tools and without having to remove the tank. The HYR271T replaces the flapper, chain and handle, therefore eliminating most common toilet problems.

At Home Depot today I saw an end cap with an infomercial running about this gizmo. However, I took one out of the box, and I was so disappointed to see the same darn paper-thin gasket that I (and many others) have reported to them over the past 2 years. Additionally, the Home Depot staff said they get a lot of returns on this item.
This company knows that their gasket is too thin, causes leaks, and that including a higher grade gasket would cost them very little (approx 20¢ per unit). Somehow they can find the budget to launch a Home Depot marketing campaign & produce a new infomercial, but can't spend an extra 20¢ per product to prevent the headaches they're causing.
I'll add that my fixes work, but the silicone seal is NOT a permanent solution (already had to replace it once). If this gizmo is not ready to use out-of-the-box, and requires annual or semi-annual maintenance, it is NOT ready for the market. If you want a dual flush, you can get a brand new dual-flush toilet for under $100.
Ok, I also had two problems when installing this, and I have fixes for the 30+ people who have complained about similar install problems (same root problem in almost every instance). I predict that for MOST people, this dual flush device will not be an "out-of-the box" solution - you will need some troubleshooting not included in the instructions.
But I also predict that because of bad installs, some folks here (not realizing it yet) will have running toilets, or will actually use MORE water on the low-flush feature than they did before! Unless you measure it like I did, you'll never know. This is a SERIOUS problem this company needs to address, costing lots of money and wasted water - and homeowners may never even know it!
I feel ~really~ bad for the folks who spent hours & hours wrestling with this device, but I promise these 5-minute fixes will work. I wholeheartedly agree that there are design flaws here, but finding a workaround saved me the hassle of returning it & messing around with another brand (and probably an entirely new set of problems).
I'm going to stress - you CAN get this to work with your older toilet, and you do NOT need the HydroClean (or any other) device to make this work. I like the HydroClean unit, but IT IS NOT NECESSARY to install your dual flush converter.
FIRST: THE LOW-FLUSH FEATURE ISN'T WORKING FOR YOU
Again, I totally agree - the instructions aren't clear. I had to try 20-30 flushes before my "Ah-ha" moment.
If your low-flush doesn't work, 99% chance the problem is water level is too low. It's not getting enough water to flush. Do NOT hold down the flush button to get this to work - if you have to do that, it that means you're using more water than before! And do NOT flush twice To "fix" the problem - just read on...
Solution (bottom line): You need to set the float level for the low-flush (the blue tab) 1/2" BELOW where you want the water line (yes, below). Then, the water line has to be about 2" ABOVE the float, so it can use roughly 2" of water on a low flush. I know it sounds odd, but try a flush - if it doesn't work, keep adjusting the low-flush water level up a notch. I PROMISE - this will work.
I know it sounds backwards - but to save water you will need to keep MORE water in your tank. The water is not actually used each flush - it just needs 1.5" to 2", which should translate to .6 gallons or less. (My low-flush setting uses .4 gallons, which is efficient and also 33% less water than national standards for even a urinal).
If you have a HydroClean installed, it may actually be getting in your way. So set the float/fill level to the near maximum setting. With my HydroClean, my previous setting was about 1.1 gallons with my toilet (I thought I was saving water this way). But with the dual converter installed, I had to add nearly 50% more water to the tank - so that the low-flush feature can work right.
Now my main flush uses 1.2 gals (about 25% less water than national standards), and my low-flush works great too.
SECOND: YOUR TOILET IS RUNNING
Some people may not even realize that their new dual flush converter is running. A running toilet will definitely waste more water than it saves - possibly wasting hundreds or thousands of gallons a month!!!
The problem is the blue "silicone" flapper gasket is CHEAP thin rubber. If it's not perfectly straight, the rubber will fold or ripple & allow water to seep into the tank. Frankly, I would suspect 75% of all users will immediately or eventually experience this. It's a bad design, almost a defect (it needs to be larger & sturdier).
I had to refit this 3 or 4 times, but the problem is, once the entire dual-flush contraption is fully installed, you can't see the blue gasket to confirm it makes a good seal. You MUST listen to the toilet a few hours after install, to see if it runs (or add a blue cleaning disc or some food coloring to your tank, then check the color of the bowl later). This can waste 10-100 gallons per DAY (yes, up to 100 gallons) - so if your goal in using the dual flush is to save water, think twice.
Solution (bottom line): You will most likely need to seal it with a waterproof silicone sealant or high-grade waterproof caulk.
A third potential problem is replacing your flush handle with the new dual-flush "button". If your handle is off to the side of your toilet tank, if you have a triangle-shaped toilet, or if your toilet is right against the wall, then you (or your guests) won't be able to see which button to push.
I give this 5 stars for ingenuity, but 1 star for major design flaws.
I pulled the trigger and upgraded to this model.
The split handle is MUCH easier to use than the split button, and it doesn't hide behind the lid anymore. The other great thing is that the 270 and 271 both appear to use the same bottom portion, so I did not have to reinstall the entire unit, just the upper portion and the handle. So far the full flush works perfectly, we're still tweaking the half flush (I think I need to lower the blue float a bit more is all). No leaks and a much better overall feel to the very cool dual flush system.
I like the option of two types of flush. It's a little tricky to adjust both flushes correctly, but after that, it works pretty well.
We have taken it out and reinstalled multiple times and still can't get it to work properly. Sadly we threw away the old toilet components so now I need to rebuy all of those parts to get it functioning again. Souch for trying to conserve water. Very bummed this only lasted 5 months.
