Are Current Replacement Seals New/Improved?

This question is from Champion 4 Flush Valve Seal Kit

The gasket material in my toilet's original flush valve seal gradually absorbed water, forming blisters which broke the water-tight seal, causing "ghost flushes." Will the replacement seal I've just ordered (July 27) be an upgrade which will not absorb water and form blisters?

Answer: 
Thanks for your response, Buffalo Tom. Truth is, I'd be content if the gasket lasted 3 years; mine failed after 4 months. I'm hoping that the cheapest fix is actually the best: piercing/draining the blisters and reinstalling the gasket. (I tried it and it's worked so far-- several months.) The rationale: surely the gasket, which is submerged in water 24/7/365, must reach some kind of hydration Read More

The rationale: surely the gasket, which is submerged in water 24/7/365, must reach some kind of hydration equilibrium and stop absorbing water (?) Maybe at that point it lasts an average of 3 years (or longer)? The idea of a water-sealing gasket absorbing water itself is so stupid as to be comical; only the Chinese could have come up with that one... Read Less

The ones offered by American Standard are the same inferior Chinese imports- designed to last 3 years before leaking.
Can't speak for the ones for sale at HD or Lowes.

Answer: 
Thanks to the AS rep for his (disappointing) response. My flush valve seal only lasted 4 months before starting to leak. I do use a chlorine tablet in the tank and consider it to be indispensable, so I won't try to extend the life of the seal by discontinuing the tablets.

Thanks to the AS rep for his (disappointing) response. My flush valve seal only lasted 4 months before starting to leak. I do use a chlorine tablet in the tank and consider it to be indispensable, so I won't try to extend the life of the seal by discontinuing the tablets. (They've been around for years now, and most toilet parts manufacturers have updated their products to accommodate them.) My two options for this toilet: 1) continue using the existing seal-- having punctured the blisters-- in the hopes that it has already absorbed its water capacity and will function normally from now on (it's been fine for the past 3 days), or 2) use the replacement gasket as a template to make a new gasket from standard rubber gasket material available at Home Depot. With luck, it will do a better job than the AS gasket.
Hopefully, American Standard will get its act together and upgrade both its OEM and replacement seals to be able to last indefinitely in chlorinated water (the way most others already have).

It is the same seal. The life of a seal is dependent on water conditions such as hard water, chlorine, etc.

Answer: 
you need a tank to bowl gasket. If water is coming in the bowl, Its hard to see if the water is coming in. Put a sheet of toilet paper in the bowl at the back of the bowl you can see if water is coming in.

Yes this is the correct flush seal for American Standard tank 4266.
At least mine is a 4266, I can't absolutely verify all 4266's.
My symptoms were toilet would refill every every hour.

Answer: 
It was for me. No external leak; running started sporadically, then became nearly constant. The second option would be the valve assembly-to-tank gasket, which is more involved to change. The third possibility is a cracked valve assembly, which I would bet is quite rare.

Answer: 
If the water is constantly running, the setting for the shut off valve may be too high. Take the top off the tank and see if the water in the tank is flowing into the overflow tube. If so, you need to adjust the shut off valve height so that the valve shuts off before it reaches the top of the overflow tube.
If the water flow stops and starts again shortly thereafter, then it's probably the seal not Read More

Is this the gasket between the tank and bowl? Or is it the seal between the tube and tank? And if I need both of these seals, what would I order? Also, what is the little red seal for in the picture?

Answer: 
This is the flush seal for an American Standard tank 4266. This seal is on the bottom side of the plastic 3-4" flush plunger that rises straight up when flush lever is pushed. The red thing is an "O" ring that is the shaft seal for the plastic plunger.
The package contains install instructions, 3"-4" blue flush seal, and a red "O" ring shaft seal.

Answer: 
It is the correct seal for American Standard tank 4266 (Champion 4). Number is stamped on inside of tank, usually on back wall of tank. The small seal (o-ring) is a replacement for the one found on the cap you unscrew to access the blue seal (gasket). Recommend replacing o-ring when you replace the blue gasket.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 89 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thankful for this flush valve Flush valve was having issues, running constantly, then found out a bubble had surfaced in the current flush valve seal. Normally we would have torn the guts out of the toilet and replaced the whole thing, but we saved considerable money by simply purchasing a new flush valve seal kit. Installed the new one (directions with valve seal were easy to follow) and problem resolved. We purchased extra ones since we have 3 bathrooms in our home with the same toilets ... best to have extras on hand. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Expected this product to be good Very easy to replace and resolved the 'phantom' flush issue. However, I think the original seal was defective and there could be quality issues at the manufacturer's factory. August 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Champion Four Repair Item Seems to be the right parts to fix the Champion 4 without having to take off the water tank. We'll see if this solves the slow leakage problem overtime. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by buy the real parts! I wasted time on the generic replacement kit in the store that is incomplete and doesn't work! It was not only NOT the original quality - it was only half there. The O-ring was not included! It costed twice as much too! (I did get a refund.) You want the original parts for these American Standard Champion 4 toilets and this is it. The installation instructions are accurate and all goes well when you have the real thing! August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice OEM replacement part Had purchased the toilet approx 3 years ago and recently had the water turn on & off indicating an internal leak. Looking at other reviews on this part, I found the exact problem with my toilet. The valve seal developed water bubbles which didn't allow it to seal properly. Great replacement part, just wish it was available in my local store instead of having to purchase on-line. August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Champion Flush Valve Seal As advertised, worked great, came with instructions, easy. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy repair Small wing nut was hard to click to unscrew , but after that all went very smooth. July 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It Works This item works as advertised but should not be necessary after such a short time. The "Champion 4" can probably flush 16 golf balls but it also allows seepage after a few short months. Replacing a $5 part is not a big deal but seems a little premature. Also, a large complaint is that Home Depot sells the commode but you have to order necessary repair part and wait a week or so. You can loose a lot of water and and a lot of sleep if you don't particularly like the sound of running water off and on during the night. I guess I would recommend the repair part but not necessarily the commode. May 17, 2016
