In researching quality wood seats, the Mayfair / Bemis brands (same company) seemed best quality at reasonable prices. I purchased Mayfair oak finish seats at another store and modified (changed) the hardware to slow close type. Since I couldn’t find oak seats with slow close hardware, or able to buy just the slow close hinges anywhere, I actually bought the Bemis white wood seats HD carries and swapped the hinges from that. Extra work and expense but we wanted oak wood and slow close! Now the Bemis white wood finish seats with the slow close feature are in stock at HD and great if you want white. Also newer better ‘ Stay Tight’ attachment hardware comes with the Bemis seats.

How does it work?

The Fluidmaster Flapper comes set at zero. I found the flush able to clear bowl better at ‘5’ setting. Watch YouTube video on how to adjust the flapper. It is tricky. It goes up to ‘10’ but this uses more water and tank takes longer to fill, defeating the 1.28 gal water savings.

What other items are required to be purchased to install the toilet

I also recommend checking your water supply line. If it’s over 5 years old, or you don’t know how old it is, pick up a braided stainless steel line in stock at HD. They’re just a little more expensive than the cheap ones, but this is not a connection you want to skimp on! A burst supply line will flood your house very quickly if you don’t shut off the water right away. And get the right length for your connection. There should be no stress on the line or kinks. Finally, per instructions, you just hand tighten the connections, and then only one or so turn with a wrench or pliers is needed. Check for leaks when the water is turned back on. Over tightening of any plumbing connection causes stress and it could fail.

My cadet 3 only flushes part of the time

The Fluidmaster flapper has settings on it from zero to ten. The higher you set it the more water is released and the more powerful the flush. It comes from the factory set at the lowest setting and the manual doesn’t have any info about this. Probably because the higher the setting the more water you use, thus exceeding the 1.28 gal water wise savings. I found that setting the flapper to the middle at ‘5’ increased the flush power enough to clear the ‘big ones’ and minimal amount of extra water used. If you set it at highest setting of ‘10’ you get the most powerful flush but definitely uses much more water and the tank takes longer to fill. Also, be sure the water level is set correctly in the tank. The sticker in the tank says 7/16 below the overflow tube. Or about half an inch. You adjust the fill valve screw to do this.

My cadet 3 only flushes part of the time

Asked by Danny December 2, 2019

I have been out of town for a little while and you probably have an answer but I will add my observation repairing a toilet tank. I have had the issue you described when I installed the Cadet 3 toilet and when I replaced the flushing valve and toilet tank flapper on an existing toilet. It seems the new flappers tend to descend quickly and do not allow the tank to flush correctly. The adjustments I did to correct the issue are as follows, the chain from the tank leaver to the flapper must be as short as possible but leave a tiny bit of slack to allow the flapper to fully seat. When you flush you must hold the leaver fully down until a full flow is engaged. The water level in the tank should be set to the proper height. This issue seems to be with new equipment the older equipment did not need to be so carefully adjusted. JOL

how can I adjust water level ?

Turn the long plastic screw, inside the tank attaching to the floater, on the left hand side.

what is standard height and comfort height?

Asked by legalfee July 28, 2016

Answers

I believe standard height toilets are those below 17 inches from the floor to the top of the seat and comfort height are those higher than 17 inches. They are also measured to bowl height from the floor, take away approximately 1 inch for the seat thickness.

Good powerful flush. One flush and everything is gone. Tank refill is quiet. However, the glazing around the underside of the rim is uneven, incomplete. But, it does not cause any problem, It is a sore eye if you look under the rim.

Awesome product! You may need to adjust the FloMaster control valve in the tank to a "10" to achieve the maximum flush result. You tube has a video on how to do this.

I installed this 1/20/18 and I must say it flushes with authority! Would give 5 stars if it wasn't for the flapper. It works fine but it's adjustable to set the duration of the flush. It's a Fluidmaster Model 540 and comes present at 1 but really should be at 10. To change it the white bulb has to be removed and repositioned. To do that the flapper has to be removed, then squeeze and pull the bulb by the two catch tabs. Better to do one at a time - squeeze too hard and it cracks. There's video on YouTube that covers it...
