The flapper assembly alone can be replaced. Turn off the water supply to the toilet and manually lift and remove the flapper from the fill tube - if you have to cut it, that's ok. Inspect the lip the flapper sits on, looking for chips or flaws that make that surface uneven.Go to your local hardware store - they have a large variety of replacement flappers from just a couple of dollars to pricier versions. Matching flapper color is not important - design and style is! Your fill tube probably has ears on the sides - you'll want to make sure you get an eared replacement. Usually the replacement flapper will have "extra " parts cast into the rubber for multiple applications, and these can be removed with scissors or a razor knife. Follow instructions provided with the flapper and know you just saved a healthy amount of cash over a service call!

How to change the flapper in a toilet bowl


flapper is a rubber device that blocks and releases water and is conrolled by chain attached to the handle. Make sure you have correct new flapper. The old one removes easily. Unattach chain. REconnect new flapper, the chain and test flush.

I purchased a Fresca FTL2336 Apus One-Piece toilet and installed it. I can hear a constant drip of water escaping from the tank causing the toilet to refill every few hours. I have lifted the flapper,...


The flapper may be defective or not seating completely which causes a continuing slow leak until the tank level drops low enough to cause the flush valve to refill it. I find a cheap flapper lasts just as long as more expensive ones and lasts about as long. Arbitrary replacement of the flapper is a regular periodic maintenance item

Hi, American Standard uses a special large type of flapper that is designed for it. If I recall correctly,
It is black plastic with a device designed to delay the closing of the flap. It also has a special chain that is not like other flappers. Home Depot should stock these flappers. Fluidmaster makes a version of it that they sell.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Toilet runs slightly, can minimally depress the handle to release a bit of water, and it will stop. How to fix?


Toilet runs continuously or doesn't flush adequately

Jiggling the handle might work for a while, but if your toilet is always running or doesn't flush adequately, you need to perform these simple fixes that usually can tame a noisy, inefficient toilet.

Check the Chain

The chain attached to the rubber flapper often becomes loose, causing incomplete flushing and/or continuous running. To fix it, remove links from the chain using needle-nosed pliers until it's tight.

Check Water Level

Improper water levels can also cause problems with your toilet. This can be fixed by adjusting the ball ****, which is located next to the overflow pipe, the open tube to the right of the handle. Adjust the ball **** so the water comes to ½ " below the overflow pipe.

Clean the Surface of the Flush Valve

A continuously running toilet can also be the result of a faulty flush valve. Because the valve is made of rubber, it can decompose or warp allowing water to escape from the tank into the bowl. Clean the sealing surface to see if this will improve the seal. If too decomposed or warped the valve may need to be replaced.

Replace the Flapper

Remove old flapper and replace with a suitable replacement. Attach the flapper to the overflow pipe inside the bowl. Then attach the lever chain from the flapper to the handle lever making sure the chain is taut.

The toilet has been leaking slowly and it's trying to fill us every few mins, seems like the flapper or the seal is leaking. How do I know which one?


hold the flapper down and see if it stops leaking but it is almost positively the flapper. turn the water off, remove the old flapper, adjust the chain on the new flapper to the length of the old flapper, wipe the port area where the flapper seals to remove residue, install new flapper.

I have water slowly running into the bowl beteen flushes.


Have you checked the flapper at the bottom of the tank? Could be easy to repair in that case.
Other thing is that the chain has snagged and is holding it open.
Hope it helps.
