another quick querstion-i mentioned it before but not in a proper post: I want to buy a new wc for downstairs and like a push-button dual flush one. are these ok, they are supposedly modern. if say the siphon goes (or flush valve as it is called)!! wears, is it easily replaced like-for-like as with a traditional siphon type toilet?

syphons are more easyer to get being a standard part dual flushes their are so many on the market now and different types they are not always as easy to get as a syphon.
cisterns coming in from abroad are the worse they are cheap components and don't last.
ok thanks for your advice. as a plumber what do you do when changing one for a customer??-do you have to order one up or something ...
i have had to wait before up to a week if not a standard one.
if not change to an english better quality one and change the button in the lid.

oh i see, you can buy new kits with new buttons, etc. i know what you mean in a way, some of the flush toilets have like wires joining up, where my sisters hasn't, the button just lowers and pushes the top of the valve! all 1 and a half in ch though which is standard i believe!
