How the Dual Flush operation for this siphon works.

The full flush volume is achieved by flushing the WC in the normal fashion of fully depressing the lever and immediately releasing once the flush has started. The short flush volume is achieved by fully depressing the handle in the normal fashion and holding the handle in the down position until the flushing cycle has finished

Internal Overflow

If in the unlikely event that your filling valve fails to open, all Opella siphons feature an internal overflow which will be able to cope with up to 35l/mm of excess water. As the water level rises so will the level of water within the siphon, until it reaches the 'Spillover' point. At this point the water within the siphon will cascade down the down tube and into the pan preventing any further increase in the height of the water within the cistern. When choosing an Opella siphon please make sure the bottom of the coloured cap (the Spillover’ point, point P) is lower than any existing exit point within the cistern, i.e. lever handle / side lever / side inlet internal overflow and cistern rim.
