SOURCE: Slow water leak past flapper seal.

Replace flapper, it is worn out.Turn off water valve. Flush toilet, remove flapper. Then replace flapper, adjust chain to same size as old one, then turn water back on.

1) If spud washer between tank and bowl is leaking, you will get moisture on outside of tank in that area.
Use dry paper towel and run around area for evidence of moisture.

2) The flush valve is sold separately for typical 2-part toilets. Sold at hardware/home center.
See image of product:

3) Home centers also see spud washers for typical 2-part toilet.
You can use your old spud washer, and you can seal it during re-assembly using rectorseal

4) 'water hammer' is when pipes make banging or rattling noise when faucet or valve is shut off.
Add air chamber to water line near faucet or valve.
Air chamber is 18" piece of pipe with cap that sticks up from water line.
Since water will not compress, shutting off flow of water stops forward motion of column of water causes energy to be dispersed into the pipes.
Air can be compressed. Adding air chamber is like putting shock absorber into water line, so forward energy of water harmlessly compresses the air for a moment.

SOURCE: I have an Eljer 141

I had one just like that where the overflow tube that the flapper connects to was cracked. It sounds like this is the only part you have not replaced. The flapper may not be seating onto the inlet either. If you replaced the flapper with a cheaper version of flapper, some new ones will even leak.

Eljer 0220 toilet leaks from tank to bowl, then fill valve spurts out water from top and around the edges, and also through the tube that goes to the overflow. Replaced the flapper, but still leaks. Also...


When the tank is full and leaking into the bowl reach in and put slight pressure on the flapper and if the leak stops then you may have the wrong flapper or the flapper is not installed properly. If that is not the case then make sure the flush valve seat is not cracked or that the surface is not warped.

Eljer runs constantly. Replaced the flapper to no avail. I can see the wate flow in on the right side of th bowl looking at the tank. Any suggestions?


The next thing for you to check is the fill valve itself, make sure it is shutting off. shut off the water to the toilet and see if the leak stops after a few minutes. it may also be a leaking gasket on the flush valve gasket. also be sure the flapper area is clean. hope this helps. let me know if you need anything else.

Water leakage from the gasket under the flapper


You will need to replace or repair with new gaskets your flush valve mechanism. "To do that you need to take the tank apart from the bowl. Have new toilet bolts and flush valve or flush valve gaskets at the ready when you take the tank off. (you will also have to unhook the fill valve when you take the tank off.) Another possibility would be a cracked tank that is causing the leak in that area but that is rare.

I have minute amount of leakage into the bowl causing mold to grow. I believe that it may be the rubber seal for the flapper body to the porcelain.
