How do I adjust the toilet flapper, it is not sealing tight?


Most flappers have a chain. To adjust make it longer or shorter. If its an American Standard and the flapper has what looks like an angled tube where the chain attaches to, they are a real pain to get right. You adjust it one link at a time. 1 too long or 1 too short and it won't work properly. Its a rediculous design.

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.

I love my Cadet toilet. It looks perfect in my bathroom, but the flush isn't as powerful as I thought it would be. Can someone help me?


The flapper is secured with a rubber band. The rubber band must be removed from the flapper for the toilet to function properly. Please check the flush valve prior to installation and if the rubber band is present, simply cut it and remove it.

Leaks from tank into bowl and when flush as it


Hi,
Change the flapper with a generic one that will fit that toilet... the OEM flapper is **** and it does not allow for a good flush either...

Installed cadet 3 and every twenty minutes it will run for about three seconds and i know it isn't supposed to do that


EITHER THE FLAPPER IS NOT PROPERLY ADJUSTED OR YOU WILL NEED A NEW FLAPPER. WATER IS SLOWLY LEAKING BETWEEN FLAPPER AND SEAT. AS WATER LEVEL DROPS ,TOILET WILL RUN TO BRING WATER LEVEL BACK TO PROPER HEIGHT.

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.
