How to fix a flush valve


  • Most toilet tank troubles can be traced to a faulty flush valve. You have three choices in correcting this common problem: (1) repair the old flush valve; (2) replace the flush ball with a more modern flapper or install a glued-in replacement flapper; (3) or install a new flush valve.

  • These repairs require a varying amount of work. The more simple adjustments were discussed previously.

  • Examine the old flush ball or flapper. If it is aged or encrusted with deposits, replace it with a new one. Scale deposits on the seat can be removed with steel wool or with No. 500 wet-or-dry abrasive paper. But if the valve still leaks, it must be replaced.

  • You can install a new guide arm, if necessary. To remove the lift wire from a flush ball, turn it counterclockwise with pliers. If you are replacing all parts, simply cut off the old lift wire.

  • Flapper. To replace a flapper, disconnect the lift hardware from the trip arm and slide the flapper up and off the overflow pipe. Install the new unit, reversing directions, and connect the lift hardware back to the trip arm. Any excess lift chain can be cut off or left dangling, if it doesn't interfere with toilet operation.

  • A loose trip handle can be fixed by tightening. The nut has left-hand threads, and must be turned counterclockwise to tighten (looking from inside the tank). Or, you can install a replacement trip handle.

  • Glue-in repair kit. Many replacement flush valves simply glue in place on top of the old valve seat. While several brands are available, not every type of flush can be replaced by these devices.

  • On single-piece toilet tanks–with a flush valve held in place with flanges that fit inside the opening–the flapper-ball may bind and prevent a leak-proof seal. On more common two-piece toilets, this problem does not occur.

  • Using a glue-in repair kit is quick and easy, but you must follow the manufacturer's instructions. To be sure you purchase the right kind of repair kit, take a rough drawing of the bottom of your toilet tank and flush valve to your hardware or home center store.

The water in the tank continues to leak out and the tank has to continue to refill. I have replaced the flapper, I have taken the tank off the toilet and check gasket alignment. The tank does not leak...


There are only a coulple of places that the toilet could leak or, overflow and give you this problem. When you replaced the flapper valve, did it have an extra piece of rugger on it? Universal flappers have a round piece on them that are designed to fit over the overflow tube. If you flapper had this piece and you don't have need for it, you need to cut that out, if the flapper "hooks" to the overflow assembly. Leaving that piec on can contort the shape of the flapper and make it so it won't seal. If you are noticing constant movement(slight swirl) in the bowl, make sure the back tank is not constantly overflowing into overflow tube. If this is the case, your water level is too high. You will either need to adjust the water level and/or replace the fill valve. If you can hear the toilet running or leaking, push down on the flapper, if it stops, you have a problem with the flapper and/or the chain adjustment. When you install the flapper, you have ton make sure the chain is long enough to let the flapper fall and seal but, not so long that it can tangle or get between the the flapper and it's seal below it.

It requires so much force to flush my toilet that I have replaced the lever 6 times in the last few years. There is a vaccum like resistance. What can I do?


I am going to take a stab at this with the information you have provided. If you have replaced the flapper around the time this hard flushing deal stated happening I would say the flapper is the wrong kind for this toilet. Flappers are not one fits all some have a bigger air cavity to help with the flushing process. The larger air cavity help buy floating the flapper up after it is started that way. If you didn't change flappers then I would do so at this time making sure you install the right one.

How do you remove or replace the flapper.


Your leak is most likely caused by either a worn flapper or a worn valve seal. Best bet is to replace both as the coat for a new valve assembly and flapper is about $12 at Home Depot. Look for the Fluidmaster display in the plumbing department. Easy to follow instructions are included. Since you have a one-piece toilet you'll need to be sure that it will fit so measure the depth of the tank.

You're going to have to get the correct flapper for that toilet. Also, make sure that there is not something broken on the side that the flapper keeps coming disconnected from.

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.
