Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SWong Easily modifyable for commodes and you can vary the gallons/flush with correct kit
As a homeowner living in NYC I always keep a spare 3.5gpf Sloan Royal flushometer. Other than slight differences appearance the Royal is almost identical to the Sloan Regal but for all practical reasons 98% of the parts are interchangeable between Regal to Royal. I have a total of 4 commodes at home and when a flushometer fails it's never a opportune time ever having to chase down repair parts leaving it almost a certainty to shut off the water supply for the failed flushometer. For me having a flushometer ready to "swap out" just makes good sense. Only deviation is I use the 3.5gpf converted flushometers versus the "water saver" flushometer which never ever clean the soiled bowl properly unless I do multiple flushes. Only item which fail on these Sloan Royal flushometers are the actual diaphragms which costs just a few dollars to bring a failing unit back into service. I like the Royals and Regals due to it's serviceability...just be sure and avoid using pipe wrenches which will ruin the chrome plated finishes and they will last almost forever. What's also good about the Sloan Royal flushometers are they will also take Zurn cartridge repair kits, you can convert the Roytal urinal flushometers into commode flushometers with just a commode cartridge swapout. It's amazing how much a plumber will charge to repair a failed flushometer considering the average homeowner can get the job done in less than 30 minutes. Homeowners with flushomter should always stock at minimum a few extra repair cartirdges if you are too lazy to replace the failed diaphragm, a few extra vacuum breaks, and a spud gasket

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by VZBE Product has to much water flow.
Ordered on line for store pickup. When I was ready to install - found the box previously had been opened. bags inside had been opened. There was enough parts to do the install. The unit flushes generously. Adjusted the flow rate to the lowest rate. Still has a high flush flow.
