    Greetings--- I have a urnial with the old type manual push button flush, The only writing I can find on the breaker, Sloan Valve Co . I went to Sloans website but can't find the type of flush valve I have. The breaker is a v500. The problem is the water will not shut off . I would like to get a repair kit . Any Idea who would make this type of valve? Thanks Bill

    Checking the sloan web page comes up with a few buttom style valves. checking the pages for the v500 comes up empty. Ya I know you knew that, so taking a picture of the valve will help alot.

    V-500-AA is the Vacuum breaker assembly for the valve.
    5323005 is 3/4" x 9" which is for the urinal
    5323006 is 1-1/4" x 9 which is old style urinal
    5323007 is 1-1/2" x 9 which is for a toilet.

    They have tons of Repair and rebuid kits but you would need to find out which one you have, can you take a picture and e-mail it to
    ussales.411@sloanvalve.com they should be able to identify it for you.

    You either need to clean the diaghram, or replace it.
    The chrome top on the valve comes off with a "spud" wrench, or any flat non serated wrench thats big enough (so not to ruin the polished finish).
    Take out the black disk, hold it up to a light, you should see a pinhole on the disk.
    If not, clean it & re-assemble.
    Any plumbing supply should have it if you need to replace it.

    Push button could be a Chicago Niad valve.

    valve

    Almost any good parts store will have a new insert stem. Make sure it has the "dashpot" on the end that controls how fast it closes.

    That is one interesting valve. It does look rather old. Should get a new motion sensor valve. I don't care for touching those things.

    Patrick 88 ---------- Is there a sensor valve that would" Bolt Up"----Would that just take the place of the valve or the breaker also? Bill

    I believe the sensor valves for urinals are 3/4" and I think you would need to lower the breaker
