My experience is that veggies don't make me generate floaters. Some
gas-producing foods sometimes do when my digestion system is not used to
them (such as if I eat a large quantity of beans after 2 weeks or hardly

I have 3 old American Standard Plebe toilets. The 5 gallon type, I think.
The only bad thing about my setup is that the 220 volt, 3/4 horsepower

Recently I installed one of the dual flush converter types. MJSI HYR270

The bottom button unloads the tank for #2.
So far it works well. I'll be getting two more for the other toilets

relatives...I'm sure that they will agree with you.
