I have a fluidmaster that has a slow but constant leak from the top of
the valve (not from the refill tube). I took the top of the valve off
and flushed out the valve but that didn't help. Do I just have to buy
another fluid master?
just replace the whole thing at $6.
it replaces quite easily when you use a small shopvac to suck out the
last of the tank water first.

I just replaced the valve and flapper on one of my toilets with a
replacement kit from Home Depot. I was all set to turn off the water

when I discovered that the old valve pulled right off and the new valve
slipped right over the existing tube and worked perfectly.
I'm not a plumber, so I'm still confused but very happy. The entire job
took me about 3 or 4 minutes of actual work.
