Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MadDog Flapper Flopper
This part, while well made of a material whose flexibility portends the ability to seal well, is not the "universal" fit it is advertised as. When installed (which is accomplished readily) two key failings were noted: Failure to seal against the seat into which it is fitted, resulting in a constant flow of water; and, the flexibility of the flapper material makes it difficult to keep it secure on the pivot shafts. For info, this was being installed on a 50+ year old Eljer (although the existing flapper valve/seat was an after market replacement from many years ago), and fit and function on newer water closets may be better. To be sure, measure the spacing of the pivot shafts before purchasing. The means to adjust the amount of flush water is provided via two rotating parts of the valve which admits more or less water into the "bowl" making the valve seat faster, to reduce the flush volume used. The flush time with both openings closed (no water admitted) seemed to work, however, as noted above, the flapper itself failed to seal against the seat. The instructions recommend installing the chain with minimum slack. When so installed, a single depressing of the flush handle results in an acceptable flush....however, if you happen to depress the flush handle when the tank has already partially emptied, with minimum slack in the chain the flapper, due to its flexibility, has a tendency to go over center ("belly up") has to be positioned manually.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redhead Good quality!
The Korky Universal Toilet Flapper is a made of very good quality rubber from a long-lasting material called Cholarazone*. I think this causes it to seal better than other flappers I have used. The entire flapper is rubber. No plastic. This flapper even has an adjustable dial to maximize performance and save water. I have never seen this feature before! It is very simple to turn the dial to adjust. It cause the flapper to fall slower or faster, as you prefer, to minimize the use of water. There is chart on the back package with the recommended setting, 1-6, according to the brand of toilet. 1.28 gpf-5 gpf. It is made in the USA. 5 yr warranty. If it fails within five years of purchase return to Lavelle for a replacement at no charge. There is a stainless steel chain included to connect to flush bar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPN80 Easy to install, No leaks, Still kept strong flush even though water level is lower
Before the flapper was installed, I marked the original water line with the toilet filled (the "WL" line) and when emptied with the water off (the "M" line). After removing the old flapper, the korky flapper was easy to install. Since the water line didn't reach within the 1/2" threshold of line "M", I had to adjust the white band and repeat the process in steps 4 and 5; the water level fell within the 1/2" threshold of the "M" line and the installation was done. I also noticed the new "WL" line was also lower than the original "WL" line and flushing capacity hadn't changed either.

I had clean my tank with Hurriclean tank cleaner and noticed my tank flapper was beginning rubber decay. The Korky water flapper perfectly replaced my older flap without any need of cutting or adjusting. My original flapper was on a plastic carriage that seems a little more robust but the Korky presented to problem with the rubber structure.
It was easy enough to replace without even reading the instructions. Just remember to turn off the water to the tank before changing the flapper.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CAD1943 Good value for the quality
Most impress by the sale professional (Antonio) in your SW 8th Street store. Very knowledgeable, it helped me decide to purchase the product. He went out of his way to make sure we had the information and materials we needed. Great service from him. Decided on outside installer as Home Depot's installation charge was unreasonable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spencer Possibly the last time I'll need to worry about what may be the least glamorous hardware item
With water scarce and expensive in Southern California, the leak I heard in my toilet from a leaky toilet tank flap was something I wanted to fix quickly. I've had leaks before, replaced the flapper with one of these from Korky, and haven't had a leak since, so I went with what I knew. It's inexpensive, and something you really don't want to have to think or worry about. Installation was a snap, removing the old flap took longer and was more difficult than installing the new one. And no more leak.
