Actually it probably came installed in the toilet like that from the factory.



Looks like you need an fm pro57 flush valve and a wb 3 bolt tank/bowl seal kit.

What is it and what is it supposed to do? I wonder if they've come out with a smart toilet yet that connects to an "app" on your phone, so you can monitor and control all sorts of things remotely. As if you actually need to control anything on your toilet. I haven't worked with any of the "smart" water heaters yet, but other than a feature that might shut it off when you don't need it, it sounds like the stupidest thing I've ever heard, and for that a simple timer works just fine.

I've never seen one of those before but it seems quite obvious to me that it is a double flush style with a handle instead of the 2 buttons on top of the lid. I don't know how the handle would work but the 2 knobs on top are adjustment knobs for water amount when flushed and one is big flush for number 2 and the other one is little flush for number 1.

I would not doubt that that darn thing works just fine but someone had no clue how to adjust it or how the handle is supposed to work

It should be this valve in this link.

I see now that the handle lifts up for small flush and pushes down for big flush

Similar gadgets are sold at HD, it's a dual flush contraption.

Thats gonna be fun to fool with.... I think I will just take a gerber tank out there and just throw away the tank and hope that everything lilnes up correctly and install a normal tank on the unit......

Maybe all I got to do is change out the flush assembly , install a new toilet handle and ballcock..... depends on the size of the flush assembly

Looks like a regular flush valve might fit.

It's either a 2" or a 3" flush valve. WB sells both. I am sure FM offers both at home depot or lowes.

I installed a few customer supplied toilets that mechanically had 2 buttons ontop of the tank for flushing..one for if you take a piss and the other if you took a dump( more water in the flush)..but havent seen one that works electronically....that should last all not that long..sticking electronics in a water filled closed area??? wtf...it looks like electronics from the picture....
