Have any of you tried this? I got one and was a little puzzled about
the installation. When I put the outlet tube down into the overflow
tube it caused a siphoning action that lowered the level in the tank
which caused the refill valve to open briefly about every ten minutes.
I relocated the outlet tube so it just barely enters the overflow tube
and it seems to work better. The instructions don't cover this and
there is no contact phone number to call. Does my solution sound right?
The cleaner doesn't go in to the tank. It goes directly in to the bowl via
the "overflow" tube which also is the fill tube. Fluidmasters cleaner is
based off the same principal, never goes in to the tank.
Frank,you beat me to it. The only thing more obnoxious than Billy Mays
commercials is Giekos's. Maybe they can hire him to do a commercial for
them. I swear I wouldn't be surprised if Geiko's ad managers weren't
taking kickbacks from the competition. I would not deal with
them--ever--under ANY circumstance, strictly because of their
commercials, and the frequency with which they air them. Larry

No kidding. The guy actually said those exact words. I wrote them

That's good, because I was ready to take it to court if necessary to
prove the point. I was going to ask the Judge for at least $1,000
dollars in punitive damages as well.

I hear you Frank. Lucky you. My son is a car salesman and makes 5
times what I do, but I do wish he was a lawyer.
The young lady who hit me was yakking on a cell phone and didn't
notice the red light or me in front of her. She actually fought the
case. During it, I said to the Judge that I felt it right for her to
pay ALL of the expenses. The kid interrupted and told the Judge she
thought that *I* should have to pay for her cell phone.
Neither the Judge or I understood her reasoning. She lost.
Huh? It has nothing to do with the flapper. Do many people even still
have toilets that use flappers? It was the first requirement when I
changed toilets that the new ones be flapperless. Can you even still buy
toilets with flappers?
Yeah they work, but it's rather a pain to have to change the flapper
every few years when it deforms and starts leaking. Flapperless toilets
are the way to go. They're in short supply right now due to the high
demand, but you can find them if you try.

I have been using the KaBoom for three weeks now. It does an amazing
job of preventing hard water deposits in my toilet bowl. This had been
a problem for the last 17 years and now the bowl stays clean. I don't
care for Billy Mays' commercials either but the product is good.
