SOURCE: how to replace a commercial flush valve

These used to very simple but have become more complex as technogy evolves. I will give you the standard answer though.

First shut the water supply off to the aplliance (there is a little decorative cover on the valve that is attached to the water line coming out of the wall. It looks like a nut. Pop this cover off and screw the screw in remember right is closed and left is opened.)

Now it is only a matter of unscrewing the couple of nuts that attach the actual valve.

Most valves come with step by step instructions but even without them it is usually a 30 minute job or less. You will need a flat head screw driver, spud wrench, tubing cutters- to cut the chrome trim tube to size, and some pipe thread compound or teflon tape.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and if I can be of further assistance let me know.

SOURCE: flapper will not go down

Troy, the flapper otherwise known as the flush valve is easily replaced. They are also very inexpensive. Sometimes they can become distorted due to the clorine in the water and won't operate in the same way they did when it was new. I bet this will fix your issue and save you money as well.

You have installed the parts improperly. You must have 3/8 of an inch slack in the chain from the flapper to the handle when flapper is closed.

SOURCE: I need to replace the flapper on my kohler model

Kohler toilets normally have the part numbers on the underside of the the tank lid. I was not able to find the 703 model listed on the Kohler sites; check under the tank lid there for a more complete model number and possibly a specific number for your toilet flapper.

Here is a fairly user friendly site with an illustrated selection of Kohler replacement parts. You may be able to match your model number or measure and visually match a suitable replacement:

Your other option is to turn off the water supply to your toilet; remove the flapper and pay a visit to your local plumbing supply store. In some cases you will be able to use a universal repalcement part as long as the means of attachment and the size are the same.

Toilet Flapper drops too soon and causes incomplete flush. Replaced with new red Korky, and adjusted chain tighter AND looser.


Try adjusting the water level in the tank. Most flappers close as the water in the tank flows out to a certain level. Try allowing more water to come in to the tank. I doubt the weight of the chain has any effect on it closing too early.

My toilet keeps leaking from tank to bowl--replaced all internal parts


If the flapper and all has been replaced. then it must be worn out where the flapper sits. or its not smooth.check to make sure it is smooth where the flapper closes, and make sure it closes fully when flushed. you might be better off with a new toilet, but thats up to you!

I purchased a Fresca FTL2336 Apus One-Piece toilet and installed it. I can hear a constant drip of water escaping from the tank causing the toilet to refill every few hours. I have lifted the flapper,...


The flapper may be defective or not seating completely which causes a continuing slow leak until the tank level drops low enough to cause the flush valve to refill it. I find a cheap flapper lasts just as long as more expensive ones and lasts about as long. Arbitrary replacement of the flapper is a regular periodic maintenance item

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.

I have a new American Standard Cadet 3 that was just installed. After flushing, the water fills into the bowl. However, after several minutes, the water in the bowl slowly drains away and is nearly gone....


Sorry for problem with new toilet.
You say water is leaking out of the bowl?

Toilets have 2 parts:
1) Tank: where water is stored for the flush and is sealed with a flapper.
2) Bowl: where water flushes down.

a) If tank is leaking water, then flapper is suspect. Replace flapper and see if that works.
Lift up flapper and run finger around rim to see if there is a rough spot that would indicate flush valve is defective, and needs replacement.
See typical flush valve

b) If bowl is leaking, that is very unusual and would indicate a crack in the porcelain.

If installer sold you the toilet, it is his responsibility to make good on product.
All products are guarantee against workmanship flaws.

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.

Kohler two peice toilet the water just circles and will not flush.there is plenty of water in holding tank that run through


These models need to have a flush valve flapper that has a styrofoam float on the lift chaninof the flapper. Go to hardware store or home improvement store and get a 'Korky brand toilet tank flapper with float 'ball". Cut the rubber ring piece away from the flapper and you don't need it (see cut here marks on flapper). Install flapper and adjust the float fairly close to the flapper.
When the water level drops in the tank and reaches the level of the float on the opne flapper, the flapper quickly closes causing the toilet to have a "surge" of siphon action which forces the water in the bowl to be drawn out.

Have to flush 2 or 3 times to empty toilet bowl


hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely

also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,

try this let me know your results
hope it helps

Flapper valve


You will need to adjust the chain. They are just clipped at any point when coming from the factory not at the opyimal length. It will take a little effort to find the desired length as sometimes the trick to getting the valve to remain open longer is opposite of what one would expect. I mean there is a point to where there will be more slack in the line than you might expect to get the valve to stay open for the optimal duration.
Hope this helps you.
