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 does not have good flush


The power of the flush has nothing to do with the fill valve. It has to do with the flapper. When the flapper is opened, the surge of water into the bowl is what causes the toilet to flush. If the flapper closes too quickly, it will take away from the powerful flush. Try to find the correct flapper for that type of toilet and stay away from the "universal" flappers.

Flapper valve closes too quickly


Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

How can I adjust the float, I have wellworth complete solution class five (11471-0). It seems like the float goes down quickly, with emptying the remaining water. I have set the right water level, and yet...


what happens is the float is not staying open for long enough, by shorting the chain that goes to the flapper might help but you can only shorten it so much or the flapper does not close all the way then the toilet is just running and running. No you don't want that so the other thing you can do that might work is when you go to flush the toilet just hold the handel down for 5 seconds this will keep the float up and open for the Right amount of time. Other wise the other way to fix it witch is a old school trick is that you need to find a nice small piece of foam, witch floats and is about the size of a old half dollar and as least half inch thick, you place that on the chain that goes to the flapper so when the toilet is flushed the flapper will float and stay open . IF you do this just make sure to use a good piece of foam and secure it properly where it wont come off the chain.

The flush valve does stay open long enough after flushing


Which style of flush valve do you have? If it is the dual-flush option (solids/liquids) I do not know how to adjust those. If you have a traditional style, then the flapper or ball is closing too soon. You need to adjust the guide arm (flush ball) higher or shorten the chain between the flapper and the handle. Adjust this carefully or you will have it fail to seat and the toilet will constantly run.

I hope this helps.

Toilet flapper closes too fast, can't figure out the best position to adgust the chain.


See this PDF document link below for a product from Fluidmaster which allows adjustment for the time for the flapper valve to remain open after flushing:
