Question about Kohler K-3386-0 Rialto one-piece round-front toilet with seat and left-hand
Had a leaking flush valve bowl gasket so I remove the old
flish valve and when to replace it with a new one. I cannot
compress the flush valve gasket to twist the flush valve into
the bowl. I contacted Kohler and they recommended I heat up the gasket in hot water to soften it up and try it. The hot water did
not work. The gasket is about 1/2 inch thick and you need to
compress ir about 1/4 inch. This is a once peace toilet with a
rectangular flush valve and you just can't get any leverage. I had
a plumber come in and after 45 minutes he gave up.
Does anyone have any ideas other than to pull the plug on this
First things first, remove the fill valve, and the flush handle mechanism. This will give you plenty of room to work with the flush valve. Before installing flush valve lubricate tabs with plumbers grease. Now put on a pair of work gloves, pushed down very hard and turn the tabs should slide easy because of the grease. Remember do not alter the gasket, the gasket needs to be compressed to do its job. I know removing the fill valve and the flush handle seems like a pain, but there is no way to get your hands in the proper position to install the flush valve assembly.
