Good value - fixings have limited use

Found the fixings odd, the floor brackets come with big bolts that can be used on a solid floor, with relatively flimsy wood screws to secure the bowl to the brackets. Used some additional wood screws to screw the floor brackets down. The cistern has 6mm holes at top (above water line) but no fixings, used my own to secure against walls. Recommend planning how you're going fit once you've the toilet, with time to get anything you might need before ripping out your existing loo.
Theres not a complete set of instructions, its a collection of bits that have their own instructions, some good, the fixings instructions are so generic they are meaningless. Also found fitting the seat particularly awkward, this partly due to the limited clearance around sides in my bathroom, with 15cms between toilet and wall on one side, cabinet on other, maing difficult to reach round the back of the basin.
Other that all good, everything seems to work as expected, and no leeks 1st time, or since
Not fit for purpose

I bought this thinking a toilet is just a toilet, and that.s all I wanted, we got it installed and it was fine, but only when we started to use it we came to realize that the design inside was very badly designed instead of a 'funnel' shaped inside that when you flush everything swirls down, there is what I've called a "shelf"/ a little ledge inside and the hole is narrow and deep at the back. What we found is our business gets stuck on the 'Shelf' or the edge of the hole and the flush doesn't wash it all down resulting in us having to manually cleaning the toilet after use. Also general cleaning of the toilet is not easy as the inside hole at the back is narrow, and I'm guessing not slopping much at the bottom so that the flush doesn't clean it out well. really disappointed and not happy as we got the bathroom done and now having to pull this thing out and get a proper toilet is hassle no one wants, but having to manually clean out ones business each time they use the toilet is disgusting!!
Pluses and minuses!

Plus: Good price, good looking toilet and well constructed. Relatively easy to put together and fit. Minus: The Siamp flush and fill valves that come with it are an absolute nightmare to fit and adjust to make it work properly. I ended up buying a Fluidmaster system to replace it which went in like a dream and worked perfectly first time. Unless you really know what you are doing I would strongly suggest you do the same to avoid hours and hours of unnecessary effort and stress!
Great good value toilet - but v. poor instructions

Overall a really good value toilet that looks great.
Getting the cistern adjusted can be a real challenge as we had the same problem others mentioned in their reviews where the cistern wouldn't seal properly and was continually leaking water into the pan. It turned out that this was a simple adjustment that wasn't covered in the installation instructions. For anybody with similar problems - there is a thin curved arm mounted vertically on the central flush mechanism (its grey on my mine). This needs to be unclipped at the bottom and re-connected at a higher point on the flush mechanism (there are multiple holes to allow this). This allows the plunger to drop lower and make a proper seal at the bottom. As delivered it leaked due to the seal not being made (the mechanism was delivered with the adjustment too high stopping it dropping all the way down and sealing). Took 2 hours of faffing about to figure this out (was getting close to throw the stupid thing in the skip!!!). Once solved it took 30 seconds to make the necessary adjustment.
B&Q I'd strongly suggest you get the instructions amended to make this a lot clearer - as its far from obvious and will result in unnecessary returns and frustrated customers.
It's a toilet...

In my old house I purchased the cheaper 50£ model so in my new house I thought I'd choose this as it was slightly more expensive but seemed nicer to look at. I can safely say it does have the extra quality over the other model, for example the seat doesn't slip, there are BOLTS to put it into the floor not just screws.
The review where it says it doesn't seal is incorrect. Mine was like that but that's because you need to adjust the valve, one adjustment to take a higher push button & the other adjustment to let the 'plunger' sit lower whilst still being attached to the push button.
Seriously this is the first toilet I have fitted single handedly & no leaks or issues... taking the old toilet out on the other hand ;)
