Review: BlueSource HydroRight Dual Flush Conversion Kit

This is a fantastic product. There is no other way to say it. I installed this conversion kit one year ago on one of our older toilets. In the year since it’s installation, I have had absolutely no problems with this product. I would recommend it to people who are looking to save water and money.

Older toilets use a lot more water than versions that are being released now. Even older, low flow models, fail to be as efficient as the newer versions. A “Dual Flush Toilet” is a common feature in much of the world. They use approximately one gallon of water for a light flush. And if more water is needed, they also have a heavier flush feature that uses 1.6 gallons of water. New dual flush toilets are now available at most big box home improvement stores. However, they can cost $100 for a basic, bare bones model, and up to $300 for nicer looking models by some of the higher end brands.

A simpler option is to convert your current commode to a dual flush system using a conversion kit. The BlueSource HydroRight Dual Flush Conversion Kit is a great option. The kits range from $20 to $32 depending on how much of your toilets existing plumbing you wish to replace. However, the water savings can be substantial. A typical family of four would save over 3,600 gallons of water per year by using a dual flush instead of a typical older model water efficient mode. Switching from a really old, non-efficient toilet to a dual flush could save that same family 8,000 to 20,000 gallons per year. (That is not a typo. Old toilets often used three gallons per flush. Some even used five gallons per flush.) So, making the switch will dramatically lower your water bill and your sewer bill (since most are based on the water usage). It can also make a big difference for the planet.

This conversion kit is also a great answer for fixing toilets that are running. This system entirely changes the mechanism that flushes the tank. Because of that change, it will not corrode and does not seem to age (At least mine has not.) So why spend $100 to $200 on a new run of the mill commode when a $32 conversion kit will make it work like new?
