Remove the entire chain, and take it to a hardware store, or home center (Home depot or Lowes) and ask for a suitable replacement.
Or you could replace the entire flapper that comes with a chain, at any of the above named stores.
Dont forget to take the flapper with you...
Good luck

Toilet flapper doesn't stay up unless handle is held down until tank empties.


If the flapper won't stay up, you may be lifting it too high - you want to retain a little air inside it when it's lifted. Try adjusting it to a lower lift height.

How to fix a flush valve


  • Most toilet tank troubles can be traced to a faulty flush valve. You have three choices in correcting this common problem: (1) repair the old flush valve; (2) replace the flush ball with a more modern flapper or install a glued-in replacement flapper; (3) or install a new flush valve.

  • These repairs require a varying amount of work. The more simple adjustments were discussed previously.

  • Examine the old flush ball or flapper. If it is aged or encrusted with deposits, replace it with a new one. Scale deposits on the seat can be removed with steel wool or with No. 500 wet-or-dry abrasive paper. But if the valve still leaks, it must be replaced.

  • You can install a new guide arm, if necessary. To remove the lift wire from a flush ball, turn it counterclockwise with pliers. If you are replacing all parts, simply cut off the old lift wire.

  • Flapper. To replace a flapper, disconnect the lift hardware from the trip arm and slide the flapper up and off the overflow pipe. Install the new unit, reversing directions, and connect the lift hardware back to the trip arm. Any excess lift chain can be cut off or left dangling, if it doesn't interfere with toilet operation.

  • A loose trip handle can be fixed by tightening. The nut has left-hand threads, and must be turned counterclockwise to tighten (looking from inside the tank). Or, you can install a replacement trip handle.

  • Glue-in repair kit. Many replacement flush valves simply glue in place on top of the old valve seat. While several brands are available, not every type of flush can be replaced by these devices.

  • On single-piece toilet tanks–with a flush valve held in place with flanges that fit inside the opening–the flapper-ball may bind and prevent a leak-proof seal. On more common two-piece toilets, this problem does not occur.

  • Using a glue-in repair kit is quick and easy, but you must follow the manufacturer's instructions. To be sure you purchase the right kind of repair kit, take a rough drawing of the bottom of your toilet tank and flush valve to your hardware or home center store.

Flapper valve closes too quickly


Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

Toilet loosing water in tank. Makes little hissing noise.


the little hissing noise is probably the valve slowly filling the tank back up and the water leaking out is probably because the flapper ball needs replaced. You can see it and get to it and replace it very easily, it is the black ball in the bottom of the tank, it has a chain going from it to the flush handle.
First make sure the chain has not flipped over the handle or gotten twisted, I have seen this happen and it does not allow the flapper ball to go all the way down and seat.

If you rub you finger across the top of the flapper ball and black (deteriorated rubber) comes off then replace the flapper ball, remove the clip from the handle, lift the fubber ears of the flapper ball off of the plastic posts at the base of the bowl fill tube, and replace making sure that there is not to much slack in the new chain, just adjust the clip on the new chain where there is just enough so that the new ball seats.

Make sure you turn the water off to the toilet before you replace the flapper ball your valve in the tank will open to fill the tank and it will run until you get a new flapper in place.

You can het a new flapper for a few bucks at Lowes, Ace, even Wal-mart

I have a 1 year old toilet. The water level drops and fills about every 3 hours. What do I need to do to fix? Thanks. specialeight@aol.com


You probably need to replace the flapper valve in toilet tank. This is the valve that sets in the bottom of the tank and is connected to the flush handle that you push to flush toilet. Look at the flapper and try to find one to match it at the hardware store before you try to replace it. To replace most flappers you should shut off water to toilet and remove tank lid, Disconnect chain from flush handle and remove flapper from overflow tube. Install new flapper. Adjust chain so that there is about two links loose when flapper is closed. Before you turn water check seating surface for any rough spots or scale deposits.If there are any then smoot them out with fine sand paper. Turn water back and check for proper operation. Adjust chain length as needed. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

Tilet want flush no pressure when depressing


Take off the top lid and look at the flush handle mechanism. You'll see a not that holds it onto the tank. Tighten the nut so it is snug. Don't overtighten it or you could crack the tank. Next inspect the chain that goes between the end of the flush handle rod and the flapper valve. It should lift the flapper all the the way up when you operate the handle.

My dual flush toilet fills up slowly how do i fix


Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.

Hope this helps!

Toto toilet will not flush. Arm does not move inside.


You need to hook up the drain mechanism or (flapper chain, if it is hooked up you need to shorten it so when you flush it lifts the flap.
