Fluidmaster® Toilet Fill Line Kit
Korky® Plus Premium Adjustable Flapper
Mr. Mat saw my commercial blog on Blogger and called me to do some little plumbing work. He stated that the toilet was leaking on the inside and that his water bills was huge. Mr. Mat said that he tried to work the toilet and now there was water all over the floor. For this job the toilet flapper will be Korky® Plus Premium Adjustable Flapper because the client asked for this product.
This post shows the twenty one steps to remove and replace a toilet fill valve, and toilet flapper.
Step 1: Above fig.1 shows the toilet that is leaking all over the floor, upon inspection the flapper was deformed allowing water directly through the toilet and to the drain line. The change of the toilet fitting can save a huge amount in water bills. According to American Water Works Association a stuck/open flapper condition wastes 200 gallons per hour and for a 24 hour period that equals to 4800-gallons wasted.
Step 2: Remove the toilet bowl top cover and carefully place it in a safe area. Watch out these toilet bowl covers are delicate and when they break they are difficult to replace. Fig.2 shows that you need to follow the toilet feed line and this will bring you to the stop valve. Fig.3 shows that the toilet stop valve will need to be shut off. This will prevent any water from going into the toilet bowl.
