The foam ring is the tank to bowl gasket.There should be a slightly rounded end and it does set on top of bowl.I use a small amount of silicone caulking on both side of gasket to make it eaiser to seal.Tighten tank to bowl bolts down carefully and evenly.Do not tighten anymore then just enough to seal.Thank you

I just installed a new glacier bay dual flush toilet. The tank won't fill unless I lower the fill valve by hand. Then it overflows the intake tube.


Make sure that you have installed everything correctly. Have someone else go over what you did because returning that thing is a PIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Glacier bay instructions


If it has a fluid-master assembly, there's a metal bar on the side of the float with a small metal adjusting tab on it, squeeze the tab together and raise or lower it on the bar to change the float setting.

New Glacier Bay Toilet leaks between tank and bowl. I have taken off the bowl and re-attached several times and the bowl leaks at the factory installed gasket every time, one side or the other. It appears...


Hello, W/D here.
The gasket you are talking about is hard to get into the hole properly. It tends to want to "bunch up" on one side or the other. The easiest way that I know of to install it is to place the gasket on the tank and then to wet the seal and wiggle the tank as you set the tank onto the back of the bowl. Water based jelly also works (better). Just apply sparingly if using the jelly; place a little around the seal, and a little around the molded socket of the bowl, and place the tank on the bowl. wiggle the tank back and forth lightly, then align the tank with the bowl and insert the bolts. If you have a mirror and flashlight, use them to help inspect your work as you go.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have a Glacier Bay dual flush toilet that makes hissing noises sporadically. How do I make it stop?


I have a glacier bay dual flush toilet. I have had it since 2009. When it started the hissing noise I tried diff things to fix it. New water valve, new washer from tank to bowel.
The food die in the tank showed water was leaking into the bowl. As a result the water would try to keep filling the take every time a little water escaped making it hiss. Sound familiar?
Finally I contacted someone on line home depot and the glacier bay manufacture was the main people. You need a silicone washer that goes in the main center piece mechanism that lets the water into your tank. You need to remove the center main piece in your tank. at the bottom inside the mechanism itself is a washer the size of a coffee mug top circle.
You can only see it if you take apart the two pieces. Once this goes inside your problem WILL BE SOLVED. The manufacture sent it to me for free. She knew right way. What causes the problem is cleaner tablets in the tank or bad water. So that's it folks
