Glacier bay toilet leaks around the flap


The flapper replacement comes with a rubber ring that slides down over the fill tube to seat. If the old flapper ring does not remove easily, you may have to cut it to remove it. The replacement flapper also comes with ears that mount over hooks at the base of the fill tube on some toilets. You cut the flapper where indicated to remove the ring before installing.the ears on the hooks. If you buy a carded replacement, all of this information will be on the card. If not, someone at the point of purchase may be able to explain. Your well water may make it necessary to replace the flapper often but my experience has been that an inexpensive replacement lasts just as long as more expensive ones

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 Glacier Bay dual flush toilet that makes hissing noises sporadically. How do I make it stop?


I have a glacier bay dual flush toilet. I have had it since 2009. When it started the hissing noise I tried diff things to fix it. New water valve, new washer from tank to bowel.
The food die in the tank showed water was leaking into the bowl. As a result the water would try to keep filling the take every time a little water escaped making it hiss. Sound familiar?
Finally I contacted someone on line home depot and the glacier bay manufacture was the main people. You need a silicone washer that goes in the main center piece mechanism that lets the water into your tank. You need to remove the center main piece in your tank. at the bottom inside the mechanism itself is a washer the size of a coffee mug top circle.
You can only see it if you take apart the two pieces. Once this goes inside your problem WILL BE SOLVED. The manufacture sent it to me for free. She knew right way. What causes the problem is cleaner tablets in the tank or bad water. So that's it folks

Water leaks from tank to bowl till water level in the tank is jus


Yes. You will have to remove your tank from the bowl to replace the defective fill stack(the tube thing your flapper is attached to) it is not as hard as it seems.First remove water supply tube.Then remove the through the tank bolts. should be two of them. Lift off and turn tank upside down. remove spud gasket. Unscrew old stack. You should be able to get a universal kit to work with your tank and should come with all new parts including new flapper and spud gasket. You will need new through the tank bolts and note the sequence of assembly to get water tight seal on tank. Hope this helps
