    AS F4040 66 Tank float id?

    After replacing the flush and fill valve in my 60's norwall with a new fluidmaster kit, i've come to the conclusion that I want my original equipment back in the tank. The problem is that I don't remember how it was installed, or if I have all the parts, or if it's a bad idea all together. Can...

    American Standard Cadet: quality control problem or design?

    On a quest of a decent toilet (two) that doesn't break the bank, wasn't happy with Kohler quality control so tried American Standard Cadet series, there's one in the house already from prior owner, I like the flush and simple flapper design that you can adjust. Got a Cadet 3 and a Cadet Ovation...

    Hi, I'm wondering how to remove the valve cover/ring - not sure that's the right name - on this AS Amarilis Series Shower Hot/Cold water handles. (This is a three handle shower.) Please look at the yellow highlighted ring. It has outer and inner thread, but no real way to undo it. The valve...

    American Standard Tub/Shower Identification

    Anyone here familiar with American Standard t+s cartridges? Need to go fix this for a family member and I’d like to buy the parts in advance if possible since I can only go out there when most places are closed. Don't have much experience with American Standard but finding that some use a single...

    Toto Drake II (CST454CEFG#01) vs American Standard Champion 4 (2034.314.020)

    I need to replace the toilet in our powder room. It's our only toilet on the main floor so it gets used frequently. I did a lot of comparison research and narrowed it down to 2. Looking for a final recommendation. My top priorities are #1 - no clogging #2 - easy cleaning/stays clean (interior...

    American Standard Cadet II 1.6 GPF Toilet 2164.020 I had one of these for about two months. It quit working one day, wouldn't flush, and I tossed it. I never did figure out what went wrong with it. Just one of the many bowls that took turns in my home as I was doing research on "The Ones That...

    American Standard Bathroom collection 2007

    Looking for pictures of faucets today, and ran across this pricing book from 2007. I may need to add some pictures from this from some of the older A/S products. More to come I guess.

    American Standard Norwall wall-hung toilet, 1959 in green

    American Standard Norwall wall-hung toilet, 1959 in green This thing flushes with at least five gallons, maybe seven. The homeowner said that when one the toilet was flushed there was almost no water anywhere in the house left over. It must have been interesting to be in the shower if someone...

My current problems are the left side (hot) handle is tough to move (tight) and I cannot seem to connect the popup to the handle (tried 6x over the last few months. so i just removed the popup altogether). My main question is how do...

    American standard Ideal boiler

    We bought a house last year with the original 1920s boiler. The boiler works great. I am looking for information on it. There is no pump and it has the old expansion tank in the ceiling. I was wondering how much pressure should be in the system? I doubt the pressure gauge is correct but in...

    How to fasten kitchen sink handle (Delta?)

    Faucet handle came off of stem. I assumed that a hex set screw attached it, but no screw found, and the hole where I would think a screw would go doesn't go all the way through; plus I don't see threads (though it's very small; hard to see). I tried an 8/32 and 6/32 screw; both seemed too big...

    New A/S cartridge did not solve leaking problem.

    I have an American Standard Ultra-Mix Pressure Balancing Bath and Shower Set Model 1363 Series. I changed the 066269-0070A cartridge, but still have leaking from the tube spout in the off position. I adjusted the stop, which limited the flow but did not stop the leak. Should the cartridge...

    American Standard Ellisse tank parts

    I'm not sure if I'm right on this. I took these pictures in 2011 and it's not like anything I've worked on recently. Not too many tanks have a push button on the side and have the fill tube placed into a channel in the tank for bowl refill. Check out the bowl refill here.

    American Standard valve body question.

    My master bedroom shower sprung a leak, found out the cartridge and the pressure balancing needed to be change. It was very difficult to take out the balancing part. Had to use angle pliers and a screwdriver to take it out. Replaced the part and no leaks! Felt real proud... Decided to be...
