Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cornbinder Was a good kit until they removed some parts.
It was a perfect kit to rebuild Mansfield toilet tanks until they removed a screw set. Mansfield has 3 screws and now I have to buy an additional screw set to get enough parts. Also most people have replaced their fill valve in those toilets and Home Depot stopped carrying the flush valve assembly by itself so I have to buy the whole kit and have trouble separating out the cost when I only use the flush valve assembly in the kit. I like HD but they keep changing what they got right.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jason Worked fine for me..but a critical step was not in the instructions.
I purchased this kit to rework the insides of an old Mansfield toilet. All of the parts were included and instructions were fairly detailed. One step that should be included in the instructions, but was not. The overflow tube (the one that the fill hose attaches to) that is part of the flush valve is fairly long, and may need to be trimmed down on some tanks. If it is not trimmed to the proper height (just above the waterline), you could have a flood if they fill valve were to leak or stick open. The reason for this is due to the water reaching the hole in the side of the tank for the handle before it reaches the height of the overflow tube. Trimming it to a height between that of the handle hole and the full water line allows any excess water to safely drain through the toilet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill product stopped the leak.
I've rewriten this review. I first gave it 1 star because it leaked from the tank to the bowl after installation. When putting the tank top back on after photographing it, I discovered that the chain was catching under the rubber attachment loop on the flapper. I had checked that it couldn't reach under the flapper itself and hold it open, but it was long enough to catch under the loop. This is shown in the attached photo. After remedying that, it works fine.

The Fluidmaster Kit has all the aprts to completely make everything inside the tank back to "NEW" condition. The illustrated instructions are quite easy to follow. By purchasing the complete kit, the fill valve and flush valve are compatible and make an excellent rebuild of the tank.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GypsyGirl Not universal for m
I read about the repair kit online before visiting the store. It sounded like what I needed --- universal, right? -- for my two late 1960s-era toilets. Without seeing the bathrooms, the plumber who was going to update suggested I buy the materials myself beforehand to save some money. But it turns out my toilets have SIDE handles, not the front handles in the kit. So I had to go to a plumbing supply house to buy the right handles. The plumber was going to cannibalize the kits, but it was cheaper and easier to replace only handles and flaps. Home Depot kindly took back the non-universal kits. So I don't recommend for side-handle toilets, but materials looked good for a front-handle.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KMac Worst purchase
This kit was easy enough to install, considering I figured I would get years of use out it. But the reason we bought this was that our flappers and handle arms were getting very sticky and hard for our kids to flush. Once these were installed in both toilets, one started leaking around the flapper in the first week. 3 months later and we are turning off the water in between flushes so that the water doesn't run all day. You can HEAR the water leaking around the flapper, and short of taking of the lid, reaching your hand down and pushing hard to create a seal while the tank fills after a flush, it is a USELESS product. I intend to contact the manufacturer and get my money back.

I am a plumber of 15 years and I use this product all the time.Just watch when buying off the shelf always check to make sure all parts are there.Nothing like getting home and having to go back out and get the right stuff because somebody took some parts out of the box.
