Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GaryDoug Unreliable flush mechanism. Flush IQ lost it's mind.
I reviewed this product about a week after installing it in 2014 and it seemed ok at the time. But things went badly, so I asked HD to allow me to rewrite this review. For reference, here is my original review back in 2014:
"====== 5 stars.... As well as being very efficient, this one works well, in a "cute" way. The flush handle is gone, replaced by a sensing button that does not require you to touch anything. It works almost all the time. Sometimes it does not work unless you actually touch it, but that is about 1 time in 50. I don;t know the reason for that and it doesn't bother me at all.
The flush is typically efficient for this water usage, no complaints. Installation was easy as expected. Most toilets are easy to install these days.
I am happy with it. I will have to wait and see how the battery life preforms.======"
Fast forward to today, 4/5/2016, and the story changes a lot. Two months after installing this toilet, the electronic flush mechanism failed to extinguish the blue light on the front after flushing. I was concerned about the battery life being shortened dramatically by the light being lit continuously, so I emailed customer support at Delta. They kindly sent me a replacement mechanism. I installed it and it worked fine for about 6 months. Then it started flushing randomly by itself. Now, we live in an area where water is very expensive and there was no way I could afford to risk having this toilet stick on and easily drain away 100 bucks of water a day if I wasn't home to notice. So I removed the mechanism and installed a conventional one in its place. As an electrical engineer, I can recognize this as a bad design. It never should have left the drawing board. I did not bother to contact Delta again since I did not want another replacement mechanism.
As far as the basic water-saver toilet goes, it just OK.

The flush sensor, the sensor that triggers flushing, refuses to trigger a flush when water pressure dips. Using a shower, the kitchen sink faucet, and most inconveniently filling the bathtub disables the ability to flush.
NOT disabling refill after flushing, or refilling slowly after flushing, but not flushing at all when water is in use. When someone is taking a shower or bath this means the toilet sits full while water is running - and someone needs to remember to go back and flush.
The location of the flush sensor, the sensor that triggers flushing is inconveniently placed near the right shoulder of the user. Stretching to the right may cause an unexpected flush.

Barely flushes #1 completely. Soggy cereal pushes it's limits. #2 is hit and miss. 1 min delay before you can flush again.
After long absences guests wander out red faced, asking for help. Sensor needs more attention than a lever would. Lighting, angle, skin tone all have to be right to register.
Sensor stopped working after a year. Delta sent us completely new internals that we had to install ourselves. Spent two weeks flushing with a bucket of water.

I bought this toilet less than 1 year ago. Since then I've experienced issues with the toilet continuously flushing itself in the middle of the night (filling, shutting off, then flushing again on its own), where I need to remove the batteries in order to reset it. Now the sensor and flush assembly has stopped functioning altogether, and the Delta website says I need to replace the auto-flush assembly at a cost of OVER $300! The whole toilet didn't even cost $250 when I purchased it. I will never again buy an 'automatic' toilet. Old-school handle and float valves for me!
I am considering retrofitting the flush assembly with a traditional handle and fill valve, but I'm not sure if it will be compatible. Delta..please help!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Razor Delta please do the right thing and Recall this toilet. Home Depot take it off the shelf!
I'm having the same issues as many others have mentioned in reviews, faulty sensor and flushing mechanism. I'll never buy a delta product again unless they do the right thing and recall this toilet and allow everyone to get a refund. Home Depot don't allow anymore customers walk into this trap and buy this toilet. I did not read reviews before buying as I bought it at your store. From now on I will read reviews on my phone at your store before I make any big item purchases.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KittyQueen17 Ugh...not worth it. Flush IQ has fatal flaws.
The title sums up my feelings about this delta flush IQ toilet. Purchased in December 14 for guest bath downstairs and actually performed fairly well for about a year. I did have to remove batteries and DRY OUT the battery compartment at least once a week to keep the water out and prevent corrosion...which shouldn't have been necessary. By dec 15 toilet had a mind of its own and was malfunctioning. Flushing on its own, not flushing when needed, trying to fill when already full etc. Delta cust service sent replacement electronics for inside. April 16 toilet is broken AGAIN! Same thing! The same problems over and over with the same parts indicate that Delta cannot correct the problem. I ordered the replacement tank to switch to manual flush and said goodbye to flush IQ. BUY ANOTHER TOILET.

Got this toilet on sale and love it. Have had it for 2 months without a single hiccup. Flushing power is incredible and I love the touch free setup.
