Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by asdflkj1234 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mouser 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SometimeHandy 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roger01 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Macabee18 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pro45 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Keith 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaryTG 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
