        I think you're right. I just can't bring myself to call it that.

            i have a sample in my truck. i'll look and see if it has a regular flow adapter. the high refill is designed for the toto and the kohler bowls. it would be a waste of water on a regular bowl if there is not a normal flow restrictor.

              The exact same thing happened to me, Rick. I installed about a case of them, before I discovered the problem. And of course American Standard would never fess up early, & alert us not to use the POS's anymore.
              Those "DUMB" valves would stay on almost full way. Lucky that the overflow tube handled it.
              I put them in my rental house I had at the time, and got a water bill for $300. Can you imagine how much water those things wasted, back then? And how much aggravation & time it cost all of us. Simply for trying something that was suppose to be higher quality mercandise.

                1. When you buy a flex supply, or even a pex riser supply, you are connecting a plastic to plastic connection. Plastic threads (supply nut) to a plastic shank.

                I always wondered why all the manufactures always put plastic nuts on toilet risers, as they could easily go brass like they do on everything else, right?
                I use the Wolverine flex supplies with the brass nut. I guess we've all seen the bottom of the plastic nuts pop out because someone overtightened them.
