Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Only Fluidmaster has toilet flappers with built-in Microban protection. The Microban protection keeps the flapper cleaner by fighting flapper breakdown due to bacteria on the flapper itself. Toilet flappers made with Microban technology are more resistant to premature deterioration than other flappers. The Microban additive operates on the cellular level to prevent uncontrolled growth of microorganisms that can damage the flapper. The 502 Universal PerforMAX High Performance Toilet Flapper for 2 in. flush valves works best in toilets with 1.28 - 3.5 Gal. per flush or higher. The 502 is adjustable for optimum performance and water savings, is chlorine resistant, and has a solid frame for ultimate reliability. Flappers with a solid frame do not twist and provide the best seal. Replace or fix your toilet flapper with a Fluidmaster toilet flapper.

  • Built-in Microban fights flapper breakdown due to bacteria on the flapper itself
  • Best for 1.28 - 3.5 GPF+ toilets
  • Adjustable for maximum performance and water savings

Answer: 
Set to "9", the flapper will stay up for a long time. Smaller numbers will make it drop faster, limiting the amount of water that makes it out of the tank before the flapper stops it.

Answer: 
Low to High(1 - 9). Setting 1,2,3,4,5 = MORE Water flushed(Flap stays up longer ALL BY it's self). 6,7,8,9, = LESS Water flushed. I chose "5". For your "sit downs", and the Toilet Paper extreme users. The higher #'s will conserve water, BUT,(no pun intended) don't forget those "2 flush people". Give and take situation. I think they call it "a Courtesy Flush".

Answer: 
It turns like a dial, but in my experience no matter where I turned it, I got the same inadequate flush. On a plumber's recommendation I bought the Korky brand flapper with the yellow adjustable float and that's worked perfectly.

Answer: 
The dial adjusts how quickly the flapper will drop down to stop the flush. This in turn, it is translated into the volume of water used for flushing the toilet. Therefore, you don't need to adjust the float to change the amount of water stored in the tank to regulate the water used per flush. It is easier to just rotate the flapper's dial.

Answer: 
The 502 Adjust A Flush Flapper works by moving a small air hole to control the descent of the flapper. By turning the flapper to a higher number you are forcing the flapper to stay open longer. The flapper is designed for 1.6 Gallon Per Flush Toilets and is best used for toilets manufactured after 1992.

Answer: 
Hi seacaptain1, The easiest way to treat a ghost flush is to understand what is happening. When the toilet ghost flushes what it really is doing is refilling lost water from the tank. A tank that is losing water will force the fill valve to turn on to replace the lost water. The most common area for a leak to occur is from the flapper.

Answer: 
The flapper doesn't have a good seal around the hole, or you have a chip in the edge or foreign object not letting it seal correctly. Check for those first. If that all looks fine then you might need a Flush Valve repair kit. Home Depot has them and made by Fluidmaster for about $7.22. Simple to install too. the other option is to replace the Flush valve for about $12.24.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 136 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't last Installed this about 6 months ago to replace the original, leaking flapper. Was fine until a few days ago, when I heard leaking again. The outer lip of the valve is now curved and warped. Photo attached. August 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far, the Fluidmaster 502 Flapper fixed the toilet leak...and even seems to have fixed one more issue Some info here might help not only for a toilet drain leak, but for a noisy toilet too. I did a Fill Valve replacement first (old Fluidmaster for a new Fluidmaster). Didn't fix the toilet leak, and even worse, made the toilet very very noisy after about every other flush. But at least the Fill Valve didn't leak, so I went on to the Flapper. Replaced the old Fluidmaster Flapper with a new Fluidmaster 502 (left it on max)...and after about 3 hours no toilet tank level change, so likely this nailed the leak issue...but time will tell. However, now the bonus fix. The new 502 Flapper appears to have fixed the toilet noise. I've done a few flushes, no noise. So, just an idea. If you have a leaky & noise toilet, start with the Flapper. You might get a 2 for 1 fix. July 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Toilet flapper My previous flapper was less than a year old and it became non-functional. The only reason I bought the same thing was because I knew it fit. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worked great The Fluidmaster worked great. Initially tried a Korky but it didn't seal everytime so I brought it back and got the Fluidmaster and it did the trick. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple installation Simple installation, appears to be of good quality. August 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not a universal fix Most toilets might be able to be repaired with this flapper. However some toilets need a certain type. No matter how you try to adjust it, it always flushes twice on it's own. August 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fit like a glove! Instruction were well written and installation was easy. Works as it should. August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet and efficient I'm a non-professional who does my own home repairs whenever possible. The toilet flapper went in with ease and required no adjustments. It worked on the first flush and has continued to provide excellent function. I will instal them in my other two bathrooms when the existing old type flappers fail. July 28, 2016
