Posted By: Simon StillTwyford Rimfree 3D is on my list at the moment.
Posted By: Simon StillIdeal standard also do rimless toilets.Define "best" in your original post. Most modern toilets seem to be a triumph of design over function - a low volume flush isn't very successful if you need to use it twice or to physically clean the toilet after each use due to the shape.
Posted By: djhIf you choose a design with a concealed cistern (either back-to-wall or wall-hung) then you can buy the cistern separately with a siphon flush. Dudley are well-known for supplying siphon flush mechanisms.
Posted By: ShevekFound this one that says it's a dual flush, but it also says it's 6 litre and doesn't say what the dual flush is.http://www.thomasdudley.co.uk/phantom.asp" rel="nofollow" >http://www.thomasdudley.co.uk/phantom.asp
Posted By: TimSmallYou could call Dudley and see if they'll supply you a 4/2.5 flush adaptor widget for a Turbo88 (it's a small piece of plastic with a couple of 12mm-or-so holes in - which slides into the side of the Turbo88 - I just drilled a hole in the 6l / 3l one instead).
A similar delayed-fill valve from the same manufacturer as the GBS one is available from Toolstation for £10
Posted By: TimSmallI've had a Twyford Alcona installed for a few months now, for the cistern I used a Dudley Phantom
Posted By: TimSmallI'm thinking of trying the wall-hung version of the Alcona in the en-suite upstairs
Posted By: tombuild.comHave modified my existing toilet to use rain water - it would be nice to find a cistern with a 22mm input so I can pump fewer times and have less of a pressure difference on the 25mm plastic pipe and 15mm copper inlet. - has anyone ever seen on?http://www.tombuild.com/www.tombuild.com/water_saving.html
Posted By: TimSmallSo I was wondering about the Interflush as an alternative - then you could then leave the siphon in single-flush mode, and with the interflush it'd turn into a 4.5-0.5 variable flush...
Posted By: djhIt'll be a 6-0.5 variable flush, won't it?
Seems like a good idea, but I don't think I've ever come across one in the wild. It also requires operator training, since the default method of using a normal WC (i.e. press and release the handle) will result in a very small flush and embarrassed users
