I noticed that this is level and my current flapper mount is at an angle - will it still work?

Asked by: mjrhoneybee
Should be self adjusting. The bottom seal mates with the fill pipe flush hole.

2 in. Universal Flush Valve Repair Kit is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 35.

I had been trying to repair a 1926 American Standard toilet for two years with the original parts and a new drop-ball valve. None of the repairs worked for long, and none really sealed well. I went online to see if there were a drop ball made out of some sort of gelatinous material, thinking that might work, when I came across this valve replacement. Given the price, I went and bought one. It was surprisingly easy to install, and it immediately solved the long-term problem. While this is a kluge, it works, and I couldn't be happier with this solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to install Looked at this online and found a youtube video of someone doing it. Literally took off the old flapper and chain, drained the water, cleaned around the seal in the tank, stuck the new flapper with putty onto it pushed down nice and hard, filled up the water in the tank and BAM no more annoying leaking sound.

I thought I messed up install the first time, so I purchased a 2nd, it hasn't even been 24 hours and it just came off. I would have been better off with a cheap, low-tech flapper. $20 down the drain - literally!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product after I ditched the instructions. Three different plumbers told me nothing could be done regarding my 50+ year old toilet's inability to seal properly and my only option was to replace the whole toilet. The problem was that the old style flapper was just a round ball on a long rod that slid up an down and it rarely slid down into the hole properly to where it would seal. The reason the plumbers gave as to why the whole toilet needed replaced was that there was no means of mounting a new style flapper as the proper attachments weren't in place and there was no way to add them based on the antiquated tank design. Then I found this product and it seemed like the perfect solution to the problem. And it was... until it wouldn't stick. I had cleaned and prepped the porcelain surface as the instructions indicated and the putty molded to the surface nicely but even the slightest pressure caused it to lift off. The putty just would not stick to the smooth porcelain surface. After a good night's sleep, the solution came to me. I carefully rolled the putty away from the outer edge of the ring and kneaded it toward the inside edge, forming somewhat of a triangular cross section. I removed the flapper part to where I could get full access to the top of the ring and then pushing down using the bottom of an aerosol can I was able to push both firmly and uniformly, seating the ring the to where the putty was actually gripping the inside rim of the opening rather than just trying to stick to the slick top surface. Worked like a charm. After reattaching the flapper, I gave a few stiff tugs on the chain and the unit gave no indication of wanting to come free. For someone who does plumbing for a living this should be a no-brainer. In that three different plumbers wanted me replace the entire toilet and spend money unnecessarily all I can say is that I now have a list of three plumbers I won't be calling again. P.s. for anyone having a problem just with the general lack of stickiness, knead the putty a bit. Once I started rolling the edges it got a lot stickier. The wax paper cover these come with was not a good idea as it appears more wax was stuck on the putty than stayed with the paper.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from depends I had to install this on an old tank that I could not find proper ball assembly for. I had to fit this on the tank hole on the bottom that the ball would drop on . That scenario was included as one of the options in the instructions. I followed the instructions to the T. The seal on the bottom of the kit would seal water but did not have enough sticking power to hold the flapper assembly down when pulled up by the handle. Lasted a day. I pulled that seal off and used plumbers epoxy and that did the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works If You follow instructions on preparation of where the ring is glued down. Bought this at Home Depot in Roseville, Michigan. At first I was a bit sceptical due to the low price. I had no other choice unless I dismantled the toilet to replace the ring that the flapper sits on. What I did was drain the tank, wipe it out good after sanding and roughing up the old ring. I let it dry for about 3 hours. I then applied the silicone and let it dry overnight. That is the key for success with this kit, preparation and letting the adhesive dry for 24 hours. It has been a tear now and it is still working fine.

I repaired a cracked flush valve seat with it. I don't know why everyone is having problems with it sticking because I didn't even dry or clean the surface of the valve seat and it stuck with no problems. I tried lifting it off with a little pressure and it wouldn't budge. MAKE SURE THE CHAIN HAS ENOUGH SLACK!!! If the chain doesn't have enough slack, as you flush and the lever pulls the chain upwards, it could pull up on this assembly when the lever reaches it's highest point, and it could gradually pull it off of the sealant ring! I think the problem is installation error, not that the putty isn't sticking.
