American standard #4 flush valve still leaking?
Posted by John on November 06, 2002 at 17:56:36:
The flush valve seal and the 3 bolt hole plugs in my american standard toilet were so rotted they would break apart as soon as you touched them. I replaced the whole flush valve assy, new seat, seal, plugs, etc. Water still trickles into the bowl. I didn't want to crank down on the fastening lug screws in fear if cracking the tank, snugged them up pretty good. Any suggestions? Should I have used silicon around the seal??? Seems no matter what I do I still get a slow trickle of water into the bowl. It's alot better, but not 100%
