I have a commode that the flapper valve continues to leak. I've relaced the
flapper, I cleaned the receiver part of the valve, even tried sandpapering
the rim to make sure it is clean. But about every third time you flush it
the valve does not seat properly. I've talked to local pumbling store and
they say I have to remove the tank and replace the bottom of the valve?!?
Any suggestion before I remove the tank? Thanks in advance
if your talking about the flapper not sealing, i would try the korky
brand flapper.its more forgiving than the harder rubbers..if it wont
seal, to replace the seat the flapper seals on youll need to remove the
bowl . just 3 nuts i think to get it off. lucas
2 things, 1st make sure your chain is not too long or too short. If 2 long
maybe chain is kinked up and part of it falls down on the drain before the
flapper has time to seat. If 2 short maybe the chain won't let the flapper
seat properly. 2sd thing if your flapper has one of those floats on top of
it get another one with out it. Flowtrone makes a soft universal type
