Hi,
Yes, for many toilets you need to get the exact flapper to make them seal properly...the generic will often not work properly..

Here's another item to check..... look at the surfaces where the flapper seats in the tank, and where the bulbous part of the flapper goes into the drain. In my humble experience, the usual cause of the flapper not seating, outside of being the incorrect type, is material protruding from the gasket that prevents the flapper from seating entirely. This usually presents as a rippled edge. If this is your issue, you can remove the excess material with a razor knife. Just be careful not to damage the main seating surface.

Best regards,

G-max flushing system is not filling to proper level


Is it not refilling the tank or the bowl? I've got a toto also that is not fully refilling the bowl after each flush. No leaks or other problems. Tank refills fine. Seems that the flapper doesn't float long enough to allow a sufficient amount of water to drain into the bowl before closing. Any ideas?

My Toto Toilet Flapper no longer works, one of the plastic bars that hold the flapper has broken so the flapper does not seat correctly. What to you recommend to fix this problem


Many local Hard Ware stores such as Home Depot or Lowes stock replacement parts that may be compatible. Turn off the water, drain the take and remove the piece and bring it to the hardware store to find a replacement part.

Failing that get the OEM part through a TOTO dealer ordered in.

Place a few drops of food coloring in the tank of the toilet, if it is leaking you will see the color seep into the toilet bowl within a short period of time. If you see the food color in the toilet bowl you will need to replace the flapper.

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

American standard cadet 3 leaking around seal


get a new filler assembly. the water in the tank is heavy enough to close the seal completely. or the rubber seal is not making contact. thats' why the leak.
change the whole assemble ususally correct the problem.
adjuste the flow to about 1/4 to 1/3 under the over flow. if that still don't give you the pressure. you ca adjust the flow tube to 1/5 under the cover. that is the max.
