Installation might be hard, but works well.

My toilet was running. Replacing the flapper--which looked like a rotting organ infested with tuberculosis--didn't solve the problem.
So I tried cleaning the valve. Didn't work. The valve was older than time itself. My house was built in the 50's and I question if it's been changed since then.
So replacement. Old brand was a FlushMaster but this brand was a whole dollar cheaper. Score.
Box from The Amazon Overlords arrived. Then I found out the adapter stick thing had to be completely replaced to switch between brands. Surprise! There goes the value of that one buck I saved. But no biggie, I've installed two bidets and one flapper, so I'm a pro at this point, right?
Wrong. Put on my stopwatch when I started. It took 50 minutes to replace the adapter. You have to go under the toilet, unscrew its connection to the water supply, deal with the flood of water that ensues (1 bucket and 3 towels worth), and then screw in the new thingy. The hard part is you're at the mercy of whoever tightened the nuts under your toilet 50 years ago.
I sat there on the floor--lying on my back on the cold, wet bathroom floor--struggling to unscrew those vacuum-tightened nuts, struggling to exist. I pondered the absurdity of my life--here I was fighting with plastic and porcelain, as the minutes of my life flushed on by on this large rock flying aimlessly in a vast universe of emptiness. An hour of Sisyphean squeezing. The nuts were tighter than spandex on a sumo wrestler. An extra fat one. I gave up and un-gave up repeatedly.
Finally, I realized I was turning the nuts in the wrong way.
After that, installation took a few seconds. The instructions said to put the rubber pipe thingy into my toilet tube thingy, but the pipe was too short, so I disregarded that. Still works like a champ (indeed quiet and quick to fill), but perhaps my toilet will one day end in some sort of fiery explosion due to my carelessness.
Moral of the story? Switching brands isn't worth a buck and life has no meaning.
