I bought this from Amazon. Placed a call to Kent and they sent a person to install the unit the next day. Installation was free.
I regenerate every week or so. No indication whatsoever regarding this. They say every 150 - 200 liters. When I feel that the water quality if down, I go for regen. After the regen, the water tastes 'sweet'. Not much of a hassle doing the regen. They have given the instructions and thats pretty clear.

Looking to the TeamBHP community for some expert help/advice!

I have a two piece (also called close coupled), floor mounted Hindware EWC (commode) - this model

It Has the dreaded problem that it simply does not flush the waste matter. It just dumps some water in the bowl and things swirl around in it but do not wash down.
You have to pour water into it seperately to flush it, totally defeats purpose of Flush tank.

It also has a badly designed dual flush button system that gets stuck and wastes water by leakage.

This is for a brand new apartment in bangalore provided by builder.

Is this a problem with this particular piece or is there a flaw in the design. Could there be anything done to rectify it?

If not, Can members pl suggest a WC option that is guaranteed to perform well. The flat is used by seniors who cannot lift buckets to flush each time.

The solution needs to be a floor mounted WC, and also the flush tank cannot be wall mounted at higher height since there is a window behind the WC.

I have previously got good experience with standard (this kind) WC of hindware attached to a Commander watertech cistern.

(On another note:
I am also looking to find commander watertech products in bangalore, and have been unsuccessful. Even the numbers given on their official website do not work.
If anyone knows where I can source their products in Bangalore then pl let me know.)

If you do want to change to another brand you will have to find a unit whose waste opening matches the Hindware unit you have. You will also have to check if the replacement unit will fit in the space provided. Any half decent Sanitaryware shop should be able to give you the info.

If brand new (within a year), the builder should deal with the problem.

If you do a google search of Hindware dealers in Bangalore you have several company run Galleria's that pop up. You could ask them.

Team BHP has a thread for pretty much everything under the roof. It doesn't matter if the roof is that of a car, or a house

I am planning to get a basic bath tub installed in my bathroom. Wife would like to have some 'soaked' evenings, just chilling and relaxing.

I checked with Kohler, and their tub starts at about 30-40k. I don't want something that expensive.

Any pointers/suggestions for the same?

How to remove hard water scalings from bathroom fittings, like taps,etc and get them shining again? They are very dull and ugly now.
