: : I have replaced the rubber flapper that flips
: : up to flush, but I can not get it to always seal when it drops back down. I have put in 3 diffrent rubber units, wieghted it with paper clips, adjusted the chain and wiped the seat. How can I replacec the flush vvalve seat?

: : Thanks Kevin

: If the flush valve face is pitted or damaged, the rubber disc will not seal 100% and the tank will lose water. Occaisionally, you can re-surface the flush valve face with a metal file and emory cloth.
: The flush valve is replaceable if needed, there are 3 brass screws that hold it to the toilet tank with brass "brackets" underneath. The screws will most likely unscrew easily, bring the part in for an exact match up.
: Good Luck. e-plumber

Anyone know where to get the flapper?
