Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EJ Fix running toilet - Though only needed disk at top
All we needed was the disk from the top of the device to replace the one that had broken/degraded in our toilet. It was a simple process to unscrew the broken one, unscrew the new one from this kit, and then install the new part. The tendency for the toilet's valve to get stuck open was fully resolved.
It would be nice if the disk was sold separately. However, the unit is not that expensive and is now put aside in case we need to replace any of the other parts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jedd Works fine
Used the flush valve and gasket as a replacement on the existing stem (since it was not leaking), this made the installation super easy and everything works just fine. Lets face it mansfield toilets are cheap and these are cheap replacement parts that work just fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JLantz The simplest and easy to install
Normal flapper valves seem to end up leaking and allowing the toilet to run, wasting tons of water. This is a very smart simple design that seals tight and normally lasts for several years before requiring replacement. When it does, it is simple to replace. Other sets cost twice the cost and take a lot more skill to install, while lasting half the time before the toilet starts running. I bought extra because I won't buy anything else for my three bathrooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worldtravel Wow!Just installed it....
I have been dealing with my flush valve coming on and off for about a year.Water was also leaking from the tank to the toilet.I changed the fill valve first and it did not solve the problem.I changed the seal at the bottom of the mansfield valve and water was still escaping into the bowl from the tank,also my flush valve was still coming on and off.I knew at that point the leak was coming from either the the mansfield tower or the rubber gasket that connects the tank to the bowl.Since the replacement of the rubber gasket would involve removing the tank from the bowl,I decided to replace the whole mansfield flush valve.To my amazement,it worked.By the way,this is my first time working on a Mansfield Valve and I learned so much.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by thewordofb Poor quality, impossible maintenance
I have two of these in my house and they're a nightmare. The gasket seal is near impossible to replace without buying a whole new unit, unlike the simple flappers which are easy to replace. The "Mansfield tower" has many moving parts, tubes and catches that often don't work correctly usually resulting in a never-ending tank fill. To top it off, its made from about the poorest quality plastic imaginable resulting in cracked clips holding the tower together. This is an abundantly over-engineered solution to a simple problem. Avoid!

Although these plastic parts seem flimsy, they usually hold up quite well. If your toilet is running, and not leaking from the tank/bowl gasket, it's quite possible that all you need is the flush valve gasket, and not the whole valve. The gasket is the red rubber part you can see just looking into the tank. Just remove the top cap, slide the float (top part of the "tower") off of the center post, reach in and pull the red gasket up. The new one simply pushes on into the top groove. Put the float back, screw on the top cap, put the filler tube back in and you're done. The gasket is sold here for less than two bucks, and takes about a minute to replace, instructions are on the package. It is possible for the valve to fail or crack, but that shouldn't happen for many years. I've found that the stop cap (top cap) on these units is the part that fails most often, so I buy them 2 or 3 at a time. Minor inconveniences for one of the best and easiest to service "toilets" I've ever had. (The word "toilet" actually means "bathroom" or "to groom". The proper name for what we call a toilet is a "commode".)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mjs4002000 Not 100% leak proof
My old flushing system was quite old and water was constantly flowing. I purchased this replacement valve to help save some water. Installation was very easy following the directions but it doesn't seem to seal 100% because about every half hour I can hear the filler adding more water to the tank. I took it all apart and re installed but with the same results, water is still leaking out from the tank, although much slower than the original.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oldtimer Everything you need for a Mansfield flush valve overhaul
All I thought I needed was the ring gasket that is under the float valve to seal it. However, our toilets had a very short flush, and often plugged up requiring plunging. We used to hold the flush lever down manually to obtain a longer flush, which eliminated the plugging. This replacement unit had a slightly different design to the float portion, and I installed it also to see if it would provide a longer flush. It does! Voila, We no longer have to hold the lever down, and no more plugged toilets.
