Electric flush to foot flush toilet

We have the Aria 2 button electric flush toilet in our 2004 Camelot. It has given us trouble a time or two but nothing major. Other than being very noisy and the manual thumb wheel in the back is stripped it has been ok. Right now the gasket is leaking very little water but it's enough of a leak that there is a constant smell in there. Just would like to hear from others that have converted over to a foot flush and what toilet they used. On the fence about changing over as I do not want a huge project just to make something else fit. Thanks.

Changed mine out to the Dometic 320 porcelain bowl. Not a hard job.

I too changed to a Dometic 320. I did have a little wobble with the new toilet. I replaced the rubber seal at the floor with a standard wax ring which took care of the wobble, and there are no leaks. Been in place for 3 years.

This is the toilet I am looking at. Did you have the Aria in place before? If so did you have to add anything or did it bolt right in place? Thanks.

Was going to replace mine with a foot flush model but after I removed decided to replace defective parts, that was last year and so far happy with decision to keep.

Why did you decide to keep it? What changed your mind? Thanks.

It was still in like new condition and after researching found all parts were available, replaced control board and switches and it works like new again, figured I could always replace at a later date if I was unhappy with choice to keep, plus the replacement model I wanted if I remember correctly was about $600.00, it was a direct bolt in, high quality by same manufacturer and foot flush.

Thanks. Did the new parts make it any quieter?

I did have the 2 button loud Aria. If my memory is correct I had to add to the supply water line and that was it. I lag bolted it to the floor on each side and it is solid as a rock. Love the 320, go for it
