Answer: 
Just the one included in the kit. It looks much better in real life (the pictures are misplaced/exaggerated). I took it apart in the store to make sure I could live with the looks, and it melds ok with the looks of the toilet (doesn't stand out like in the pictures). Maybe I could upload a picture of what it actually looks like on an actual toilet (probably not).

Probably not. Their lever connects to a valve. It might be possible to adapt an existing lever to operate the valve, but there would be no guarantee of success.
The their lever is finished in chrome and looks quite nice, although a bit small. It has markings that show which direction to push for full and half flush, but the markings are so small I only just noticed them when I took it apart to answer Read More

Thank you for the question, the Duo Flush Handle is specific to the Duo Flush Flushing System because the handle has dual action, it can move up and down to start the flushing cycle, where as a standard tank lever can only move downward to start the flushing cycle.

Answer: 
This replaces your existing equipment inside the toilet tank. If what you have in there isn't working, this will probably work since it's a replacement unit for what's already in the tank. Was easy to follow instructions for install. I got mine as part of the Home Depot Seeds program so I am not sure how much it costs. Good luck!

Answer: 
Check with HD for current prices. The unit comes with a large illustrated instruction sheet telling you how to install it. Installation is more complicated than some other types, but that is because the unit will turn an old toilet into a modern water saving unit. I've had mine for 6 months with no problems.

Your best bet is to contact Fluidmaster directly
800-631-2011 from M-F between 5:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. PST.
If they can't help you may be able to repair the part with an adhesive made for plastic.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 2.2 out of 5 by 100 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome product I think this is a great product. I had the previous model and it stopped working properly for some reason (it was at least several years old). I called Fluidmaster to try to troubleshoot it, but they just sent me the new version (awesome customer service btw). I installed the new one very simply and it works perfectly. It's nice having a smaller flush option for liquid waste now to save money. I'm heading to HD to buy another one since a different toilet with a Korky isn't working well. May 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good concept but bad product Installed 2 of these. The metal wire that connects the lever to the unit broke on both after about 9 months. The locknut on the back of the lever constantly comes loose. Had problems with both of them sealing after a flush. Factory knew about this and sent larger seals. Fluidmaster really needs to redesign these. May 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by What a piece of junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I finally have a chance to review this product. It seems like a good idea, but there is a problem with the design. The cable that connects the handle to the flush valve is weak. I have had four of these now and the cables last no more than 6 months. They have a warranty on the valve, but what are you to do when the cable breaks? Put the bathroom out of order? The metal cable within the plastic sheath begins to fray and the unit stops working. I have had three where the bead on one or the other end snaps off and makes the unit unusable. I would not recommend this unit to anyone. I am on unit #4. April 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely DO NOT purchase After only six months, the flush cable broke. I tried to call Fluidmaster's "Technical Support" department, and got a recording that basically said "we're too busy right now - leave a number" - THIS IS TECHNICAL SUPPORT???? THIS IS CUSTOMER SERVICE????? Wish I had read the reviews first! I would not recommend this product (or any other Fluidmaster product) to my mother-in-law, let alone anyone else! May 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good prosuct, easy to install Was really happy to see low flow options at Home Depot! Simple instructions and easy to install, just be sure reference the pictures on the instructions. There were plenty of extra parts left over for different style toilets, so not all parts were used for my toilet. Adjusts flow as needed for your toilet, which makes me happy. I still think i need to adjust the flow again now that we have been using it for a couple weeks. Kids got used to to flush up/down method very fast. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Easy to install works great. The only I had to do was adjust the waterlevel a couple of times May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of Time and Money I bought this on a whim after seeing it on the shelf at the store. The product was well packaged and had easy to follow instructions to install. It looked promising. I calibrated it to my toilet just as the instructions said. The handle is a cheap piece of plastic junk. It looks flimsy and feels flimsy. It is embarrassingly cheap. The half flush only works sometimes, the rest of the time you have to hold the handle until things get moving, and the second you release it the flush stops. Very annoying. When using the full flush it often leaves the toilet running--not a good use of water!! What a waste of money. I will never again buy anything on a whim without reading reviews on it first.
