Where could I find the flapper for Sterling 1.6GPF toilet?
Here's the easiest way: Close the water valve that supplies water to the toilet. Lift the lid off of the tank. If you look in from the top, you'll see a long white tube in the middle of the tank running from the top to the bottom. It is called the overflow tube. At the base of the tube is the flapper, and it anchors to the base of the tube, and is actuated by the handle on the front of the tank pulling the chain connected to the flapper. Flush the tiolet, and you'll see what I'm talking about. To replace the flapper, you'll need a replacement. Remove your flapper and get a pretty good look at it. You can buy a replacement at any hardware store. A 'universal' replacement should fit, but take the old one with you to be sure. When you look at the new flappers, you'll notice a rubber ring attached to the flapper, and you may not have one on yout toilet. No worrys here, the ring can be cut out if yours is of the type that just clips onto two lugs at the base of the overflow tube. Install your flapper, hook up the chain and turn the water back on.
The chain should have just a little slack in it.
