Product Overview

The HydroStop replaces flimsy rubber flappers with a sturdy tower, it is engineered to eliminate the most common toilet problems. Unlike the angled, floating close of a flapper, the HydroStop drops vertically and solidly onto the flush valve opening to create a better seal and eliminate the possibility of leaks. The EPA estimates that 20% of all toilets leak up to 200 Gal. of water a day, mostly because of faulty flappers. While ordinary flappers are connected to the handle with a thin chain that is subject to improper tension tangles and breakage, the HydroStop features a durable stainless steel cable that is stronger, lasts longer and is less likely to break. The HydroStop also features patented S.T.O.P. Technology (Safe Toilet Overflow Protection) that helps prevent bowl overflows. In the event of a clog, lifting up on the handle immediately drops the HydroStop tower and closes the flush valve so that water does not continue to drain from the tank into the bowl.

  • Handle activates spring loaded S.T.O.P. technology to immediately prevent overflows
  • Eliminates the guesswork about buying the right type and size of flapper
  • Permafit silicone seal is chemical resistant and will not warp
  • Drop-in installation with no tools or tank removal needed
  • Light touch handle allows for an easier flush
  • Fits standard 2″ to 2-1/2″ flush valves

Broken Knob of flapperless toilet

The knob is broken, Can I get replacement knob?
Asked by: sant
Same here. Specifically, the plastic rod that connects the handle to the flush actuator. Seems to be a design or manufacturing flaw. Stronger part (better able to withstand repetitive torque of operation over months of use) would be desirable. Called DANCO support number as described in other post. They are sending me a replacement handle. Otherwise, the system works well.

Asked by: Vinnyfrombrooklyn
Yes since the lever is connected with flexible rubber instead of metal rod

Asked by: karen
Check and confirm the seal on the tank is clean and not damaged. If it is damaged it will have to be replaced prior to installation. Pour some water confirm the seal is tight. If it leaks reset before proceeding.

I was frustrated trying to get the right adjustment on the traditional flapper and chain assembly. Decided to replace it with this system. It was easy to install and worked perfectly the first time. Installation time 10 minutes with no leaks.

The unit only works 1/3 of the time, no matter what position the flush switch is in. The other 2/3rds of the time, the handle just sits where it is, in the down position, which means the flapper never actually closed when you pushed the toilet handle down to flush so the toilet just continues to run. So, I have to wait around and make sure the flapper is down and the bowl is actually filling up. The unit was inexpensive and worked flawlessly for a few months, but is obviously not made of sterner stuff and the seals or whatever degraded. So, I'll go back to the regular flapper and chain. At least I know that works 100% of the time.

PRODUCT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DESIGNED FOR MORE APPLICATIONS. SAVE YOUR SELF THE HEADACHE AND BUY CORRECT REPLACEMENT COMPONENTS OR EVEN BETTER OEM REPLACEMENT COMPONENTS IF YOU CAN. DO IT THE HARD WAY BY REMOVING THE TANK TO FIX A LEAKY FLUSH VALVE... DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT USE CLEANING TABLETS IN YOUR TOILET TANKS OR YOU WILL BE DOING THE REPAIR AGAIN.

Bummer... just like the old flapper I replaced it with. I contacted customer service online and they rushed me a fresh one. This one works like a charm. Certainly worth the money... I would recommend and plan to replace the other 2 toilets in my house. Thanks Danco

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new product This was the first time I have used this type of toilet valve. I was surprised at how easily the swap out was. In just a few minutes the install was complete and with a couple of quick adjustments I was finished. The new valve is very quiet and seems to use only a small amount of water compared to the old valve. I would recommend this product.

The problem is the connection between the handle and the unit. This is the 5th or 6th one I have bought in the last two years and the nylon(or something) connector rod on the handle twists in half. The first 3-4 had a ten year guarantee but are lucky to last 3 months. It really sucks.

It was a complete flush system replacement. It has had problems the whole time, intermittently not shutting off/ sealing, or whatever and causing the water to run continuously. I finally decided to replace it back with the tried and true flapper system. This thing is a piece of junk

The drill is easy to install and works very well, for a time, I have six of them installed, however, overtime, all the chlorine put in today's water supply causes the rubber fittings to deteriorate and you can't buy the proper replacement rings. Make that an option and you have a great product
