Depends on type. Rubber ones usually are suspended from the seat by an arm on either side, you pull it off the arms and replace the same way. Older ones slide down over the overflow tube.

What causes a loud gurgle after flush?

If the flapper does not seat correctly and completely, refill water flows into the bowl and causes a "false flush" and the loud gurgle. You can demonstrate this by holding the flush handle depressed after a normal flush. Also, there may not be sufficient slack in the flapper chain to allow it to seat correctly.

If the flush valves were installed exactly according to the instructions, they should work perfectly and can be excluded as a source of the problem.

What do I do if the toilet continues to draw water and the water level on the fluidmaster 400 is properly set?

First is the water overflowing the overflow tube? This would indicate that the ballcock or flow master needs a seal or that it is rubbing the side of the tank (if it is rubbing the side of the tank twist it slightly). If the water level is always below the top of the tube but the flow master keeps on filling in bursts then you need to replace the flapper. Flappers will decompose slowly and black residue will come off to the touch. Wear gloves because this black will be on your hands for days. The flapper gets a slight ripple or curve that allows water to get by.

My fluidmaster 400 anti siphon for toilet will not stop filling making pump run over and over

Hi turtlerose07...

Sounds like you have one or two problems with the fluidmaster 400.
1...The float is set too high allowing the water to overflow into the overflow pipe and allowing your pump to run too much.
2...Flapper valve inside at the bottom of the tank is not sealing properly, thus allowing water to leak and causing the fluidmaster to keep trying to fill the tank with water and causing the pump to run too much.
Please take time to rate me

I have installed a Fluidmaster 403 G fill valve, flapper and tank lever to the water tank in my toilet. The tank fills OK but after several minutes the water in the tank has drained out I can not see...

if no leaks in tank. push down on flapper when it fills up. if water stops draining then it is the seal under flapper that is bad. you can lift up flapper and put patrolium jelly on bottom of flapper. this may just seal it. or it needs a certain type of flapper.

Have old kohler, i do not know what the inside flapper part is. However toilet will flush but tank will not fill. I can turn thhe water to the tank off and turn on again and it will fill

This indicated that there is dirt of corrosion in the flush valve assembly that get jarred loose and flushed out when turning on the supply valve below. My recommendation is replacing the flush valve assembly with a Fluidmaster flush valve. Be sure to follow the instructions when removing the old valve and installing the new one. If you need step by step instructions, please message me and I will provide them.

it is time to replace the flapper. turn water off, remove old flapper, wipe port off with rag where flapper seals, adjust chain to same length as old flapper, install new flapper. fluidmaster is the best brand.

How do you remove or replace the flapper.

Your leak is most likely caused by either a worn flapper or a worn valve seal. Best bet is to replace both as the coat for a new valve assembly and flapper is about $12 at Home Depot. Look for the Fluidmaster display in the plumbing department. Easy to follow instructions are included. Since you have a one-piece toilet you'll need to be sure that it will fit so measure the depth of the tank.

Toilet won't shut off

Does it leak from the overflow? If so then the washer at the top of the Fluidmaster needs to be replaced. If it is not going over the overflow then you will need to replace the flapper on the flush valve.
