Made by WD-40,2000 Flushes is an automatic toilet bowl cleaner, that is meant to freshen and clean your toilet bowl. The product is listed to kill 99.9% bacteria. Sounds good right? Well after using the product for some time now, I must mention that along with barely accomplishing its main task. 2000 Flushes is more trouble than what it's worth.
The product is listed to perform the following:
-Concentrated to clean up to 4 months.
-Powerful blue detergents clean and deodorize. Bleaches away stains.
-Freshens with every flush.
-Not harmful to plumbing or septic systems when used as directed.
The product comes in a small box with two separate pieces in individual packaging; one blue for the detergent, one white for the bleach. You flush the toilet until the tank is clear, then place both bars into the toilet tank while the water is coming in. The blue bar is meant to freshen the toilet after every flush. This can actually occur depending on how well the blue bar dissolves in the toilet tank. Unfortunately, the bar turns into a big blue blob and sits in the corner, and emits only a small portion of the substance. Definitely not enough to freshen the toilet where it can be noticed. The bathroom is one area people want to know for a fact is fresh, by inhaling a fresh scent at all times. This product doesn't provide that for the toilet unless you take a toilet brush, and play around with the bar to spread the substance around. But who wants to waste time forever removing their items off the top of the toilet to do this every 2 to 3 days or less?
The bleach has a very small smell that is hardly noticeable, and it does its job a little. I haven't noticed a large amount of brown stains from the water ducts inside the toilet. But I still scrub there anyway. In any case, even with the bleach in the toilet, if you're thinking this product will see to it you never have to scrub your toilet again, then you have another thing coming.
The back of the box has detailed instructions on how to use the product by providing two diagrams; Diagram A and Diagram B respectively. Along with detailed pictures on proper placement. There are also verbal instructions that must be read before opening the packages, as well as your basic caution label.
Now this is where the product really annoys me at. I do all of my repair work, and if I'm put in a position where I have to change the toilet flapper, pump, or handle. 2000 Flushes adds an unnecessary headache to what could be an easy job. The blue detergent will stain your hands very bad, and you have to stick your hands in the tank for some type of repair work if the toilet doesn't flush. In order to avoid this, you can drain the toilet first by unscrewing the connector and have the water pour inside of a bucket. But why go through all of this? Plus, the blue detergent is all over everything, and you're going to turn your fingers blue anyway should you have to remove anything in the tank. Yes, you can use rubber gloves, but not everyone feels comfortable working with these, especially me. The detergent also stains floors, and it's hard as hell to scrub off completely. My white tiles are damaged, and I a have to change them.
The product is said to last up to four months. I'm not exactly sure if it's ever lasted that long, and I don't count the flushes either. I don't believe there's anyone who would do that. Personally, I'm sticking to the old fashion way. Toilet brush and Pine-Sol. Nothing else does it better for me.
Pros: -Great for public urinals perhaps
Cons: -Pretty much worthless
