leaking fill valve washer
Posted by kh on August 24, 2001 at 16:11:50:
I am trying to install a new water inlet valve, or ballcock if you will, into a Kohler toilet (Kohler calls it a float
valve). It looks like a Fluidmaster fill valve, only it is a little longer since the tank is higher than normal. No
matter how loose or tight I tighten the plastic nut on the bottom of the valve body that holds the
valve to the tank I get a leak. There does not appear to be a crack in the tank or in the valve body. I even
tried using two different kind of washers, a cone shape one and a flange kind that came with the
replacement fill valve, but no luck. Any suggestions?
