Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by thombstone for the want of a valve I had to buy nearly the whole toilet
They sure did not have the average homeowner in mind when they decided to make this a complete assy. All I needed was the flapper assy and if I was not mechanically inclined getting it disassembled installed and working would have been a disaster of broken parts. I still cannot conceive what A/S had in mind sending me the whole assy. Would have entailed disassembling the tank from the bowl and rebuilding the inside components. But, I got it up and running in about 20 minutes. As you can see, changing out the whole assy would have been horrible.

This is the correct product for American Standard Champion Toilets. Only problem with installation is it is time consuming and requires removal of tank from toilet. Although the ghost leak problem is caused by a poor fitting or worn seal, to correct the problem adequately entire assembly required at a fairly costly expense when compared to cost of seal.
In so much as the seal leaked in only four years of use, the quality can be listed only as average or fair.
So goes the value. A good toilet with a poor valve arrangement is a downer. I recommend only because it is the only option available unless you wish to replace toilet.

The flush valve is really easy to change. Solved the problem with ghost flushes or water leaking from the tank to the bowl. Really only needed the blue gasket to be replaced which had the common problem of a bubble in it. Instructions need to be more specific about the importance of correctly clocking the top cup to stop the leaking.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by krazykid don't get a full flush
new design uses less water because it sits 3 inches off the bottom of the tank so you have all that water that is not used in the flush. had to glue a 2 1/2 in piece of pipe on top so I could adjust the water level to get a better flush. am not at max water level and still don't always get a good flush. used to be a great toilet, now it's a piece of junk

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ollie works better than the original
Should be sold in your store. My neighbor, a professional plumber, could not find it, because American Standard had discontinued the original style. Found an instructional video on YouTube and was able to identify and put it in myself.

The old style "guts" of my Champion toilet were the weakest link before. They quit working like they should within the first year. To order replacement parts was very expensive. All too soon they needed to be replaced again. This redesign seems like it should work much better! I have not had it installed long enough to be sure but just the way it is made and how it works so far is much more promising. Plus the price was about a forth of the price of the old original parts. Once again I have a dependable toilet!

For several years our Champion toilet has had problems with the flush valve always clunking and occasionally slipping and not flushing the toilet. I recently researched the valve and discovered that they had completely changed the mechanism. On receiving the replacement valve, I proceeded to install it and wound up with a leak, which had nothing to do with the flush valve, but was due to failing to replace the tank to bowl gasket. A trip to Home Depot for the $4 gasket, and the leak was fixed. The toilet now works flawlessly, however, the only small problem with the new flush valve is that it is much harder to press the handle to flush the toilet.
