Answer: 
I thought mine was leaking around the seal. It turns out that the water fill line was too far pushed into the tank making it below the water level causing a siphon effect. Check the water fill line. Make sure it is above the water level of the tank.

Answer: 
I am wondering if you notice the leak just after installation or months after. If it is months or more, the minerals in your water could be destroying the brass screws that are included in the kit. I replace those new brass screws during installation with matching stainless steel. I also use plastic beads for the flapper pull, as the minerals will eat though that in no time.

Answer: 
Have you tightened the brackets sufficiently which hold the flush valve in place? Is the ceramic that the valve sits on damaged in some way? Be sure to clean that area before installing the new valve. Any little specks of dirt, etc. will not allow a perfect seal of the gasket.

Answer: 
There may be a warp in the seal or if the flapper has any blisters this could cause the flapper to leak. Run your fingers along the flapper and you will be able to feel the warps or blisters. If you have further questions about your flush valve and flapper please visit American Standard website and submit your inquiry on the "Contact Us" link.

Answer: 
Please check the flapper for any warps or blisters, if the flapper has any warps or blisters that is what is causing the leaks. If your flapper is warped or has blisters please visit the "contact us" on the American Standard Website.

Answer: 
I suggest that you skip replacing the flapper but just replace the entire unit. It isn't that much more expensive. My experience with replacing only the flapper (three times) was met with failure. Be sure the this new flush valve unit from Home Depot will fit your toilet!

I have an old toilet with an old-style flush valve that attaches to the bottom of the tank with 3 screws. If I install this kit, those holes with not be used. Some other kits include 3 rubber plugs to close those holes (but those kits are more expensive). Does this kit also include those plugs? Thanks!

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Genuine Part Finally Solved the Running Toilet I messed with this problem for too long because I didn't want to have to order the part on line. That was a mistake. The red, non-American Standard replacement flappers available in the store just didn't seal completely. Once this part arrived, I had it swapped out in about 2 minutes (I am generally horrible at DIY projects). On the test flush, I could feel the suction from a good seal between the flapper and the seat. No more running toilet. Note: this part worked well for my American Standard Elisse (model 2008) one piece, low profile toilet. Home Depot had a better online price for this part than other sites I checked. June 13, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Replacement for original part I needed to replace my flush valve assembly on my 1957 Standard one-piece toilet. After a slight panic in having one of the three original screw-heads strip, the install was a breeze. The whole thing took less than 30 minutes and now I have a toilet that flushes every time and doesn't leak water continuously into the bowl. The quality is not as high as the original, but the fact that there are no metal parts in the assembly to rush in the water more than offsets this. If you need to replace your original don't hesitate to buy this replacement. Money well spent! June 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Installed easily and works well — in time The instructions are clear and the installation was fairly easy. I was disappointed at first because it seemed to leak every so often as the rubber was not seating well. But then after about a week it quit altogether. Before the installation the leak was a constant irritant with the water coming on every hour or two to refill. After the installation the problem was not with the water coming on, but just that the tank would be empty when flush was attempted. The valve is designed to stop the cycling of the leak -refill routine. However, as I noted the leak stopped after about a week. November 21, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works good I just installed these and they work. For 20 years, I've had trouble with the water level leaking down on our one piece AS toilets. I replaced the flush valves with new ones from Lowes and they leaked down even worse, and the amount of time the valve would stay open was too short. I had to modify the water drain holes in them. . I then bought some on line from a plumbing supply house thinking that quality would be better. The price of those flush valves were about twice the Lowes price. They still leaked down and the valve open time was too short. . I finally got these, which are an American Standard package. Amazing. Although they look the same basically as all my previous, these work. No leaking. The valve open time is perfect. And....the price is right. I recommend them. April 28, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Still leaks into bowl! I bought this to replace a leaky valve. I have installed it and uninstalled it several times. It still does not seal properly. I cleaned the area where the gasket meets with CLR and scrubbed the heck out of the area. I watched several Youtube videos and it still leaks! I am not happy with this product. I could not find a customer service phone number to call for help. What a big waste of my time. I have had less expensive toilets that were easier to repair. Probably will not buy any American Standard products again. September 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Only One That Works This valve is a little pricy but don't even bother looking for something else. This is the only one that works with this American Standard Toilet. Believe me I've wasted plenty of time and money and this one does work. The others will allow water to slowly bypass the stopper and you constantly waste water and hear the tank valve come on. It took less than three min to install. July 8, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Product would be better if it included a fastener for the lift rod The part seems well-built enough, but there's no clip or fastener included to secure the chain to the flush handle lift rod. Because of that, I had to just tie it in a little knot and re-tie if periodically until I can locate an appropriate fastener. While it's a kind of small gripe, it's annoying to not have that component. Shipping was fast from Home Depot, but the item itself was the thing. Still, if you have a toilet like mine that won't accept "universal" kits, this is what we have to work with. November 20, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perfect fit, easy installation I own three American Standard toilets that are twenty or so years old. For the past several years, I have been trying to find replacement flush valves for them as slow leaks had developed over time. All generic units I tried were poor fits. When I found the genuine AS part on line, I was delighted. The part was a snap to install (took less than five minutes for everything) and stopped the slow leaks entirely. Very glad to have found the part at a reasonable price May 15, 2010
