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.

My daughter did the experiment of putting food coloring in the tank, then, we waited an hour and the color was in the bowl. Is it true that this would signify a leak in the toilet?


That is a very strong indication that you need to replace the flapper. As there are a lot of different makers and types I would recommend you try to match it up or go with a universal repair flapper. When you are installing the new flapper check the sealing surface to make sure there are no rough spots that could cause a lesk. If there are you can remove all water from the tank and use medium grade sandpaper to smooth it up. I hope this helps you.Thanks.

Replaced flapper water still getting through


They sell a replacement lip for the pipe that the flapper sets on. It cost about 12.00 dollars and is really simple to install. Just make sure you buy the one with the small tank above the flapper to give extra pressure.

I replaced my Sterling 1.6GPF with universal flapper and it still did not fix the water leak into the bowl.


make sure chains not too tight otherwise it holds the flapper open just enough to let water thru

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.
