Cheviot Wall hung toilet flush valve replacment gasket

Hi, I am hoping you can help me.


I purchased a Wall hung toilet from Vintage tub and bath 2 years ago. The flush valve has deteriorated and causes the water to leak from the tank into the bowel.

This is the exact toilet : http://www.vintagetub.com/asp/product_detail.asp?item_no=C805

It is the round gasket at the bottom of the flush valve that lifts up when the flush button is pressed to let the water flow from the tank to the bowel.


I am in need of this replacement gasket.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was told this toilet is manufactured by a company called Vitra.


Thanks in advance

How do i flush the pipes out? (when i flush the toilet it will not re-fill water) one of the answers was to flush the pipes


If you have a supply shut off to fixture shut it off and disconnect supply line from inlet to toilet . If your supply line to toilet is a flexible line then bend it so that you can direct water to small container. Slowly turn valve on to see what flow rate is at that point. If flow rate is not good then I would shut water off to house and replace valve. If flow rate to toliet is good I would reccomend you replace flush vallve. To do this shut off water supply to toilet. Disconnect supply nut to bottom of flush valve. There will be a retaining nut that holds flush valve in place in toilet tank. Remove flush valve after removing fill tube from flush valve to overflow tube. Replace with toto replacement valve or use Fluidmaster 400A. Instructions on box of 400A are easy to follow and if you have flex connector you won't need supply line washer. I would reccomend that before you install new valve that you put rubber gasket on shank of valve and slid it about halfway up the shaft. Make sure that inside of tank is dry and use a small bead of silicon caulking on top and bottom side of shaft gasket. slid gasket the rest of the way on valve shank,install in tank and put on retaing nut hand tight. Push down on top of valve and using channel lock pliers finish tightening nut securely.You may need to reach into tank and grasp valve body to stop it from turning. There are other things you can do if you have a working supply valve. Shut off valve and remove screws that hold top of valve in place and remove and clean surfaces. You can turn valve on slowly to help flush out any rust or mineral deposits. I hope this is of some help to you. Thanks

Downstairs toilet won't stop filling, upstairs toilet won't fill


for the upstairs if the valve is fully on there is not much you can do other than replace water service to the house or heaven forbid repipe.Valves usually don't restrict fill volume.But you can take the supply loose from the tank and stick it in a bucket turn the valve on and check the flow.this should narrow it down.Down stairs repair or replace flush valve

Master bath toilet replaced with a Cimmeron class 6 confort height toilet. The master bath toilet backs up to the hall bath toilet - same wall. The hall toilet is very old. When the old toilet is flushed,...


Kohler is correct. The most likely cause of this problem is an obstruction in the common vent stack that both toilets share. When you flush the old toilet it need more air to flush and will get it from the easiest source (your new water saver toilet). First adjust the float level in the old toilet so it won't use as much water or just stick a brick in the tank to take up space.Second, run a snake down the vent stack from the roof to check for obstructions. Birds will sometimes nest in there.
