Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BB101 Solid option for toilet leaks
If you are here - your toilet developed a leak and you need to fix it. More often then not the flapper becomes a source of a leak for one reason or another. This korky provides a rather universal flapper option with different options to slow/increase the time it takes for the flapper to close. The back of the box even calls out a few configuration for common toilets.
Its the only one I have seen capable of this functionality, which does indeed make it more universal because not all 2 inch holes empty at the same speed. So you can dial in how fast it drops and seals up.
I've tried other flappers only to have them give up after a few months. Other don't work at all causing you to curse at a toilet bowl... such a good use of time... This one is replacing a retro-fit watersaving toilet flapping system that developed a leak.

The water saver is easy to install and if your toilet isn't listed in the package you can go on the web site and watch a short video on how to adjust and install the flap real simple and seems to work just fine.The only thing I had to do is change the hook for the handle because their's wouldn't fit but that also was no big deal either. If you want to save some water this is an easy fix.

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 pilotman63 You get what you pay for
I wanted to just replace the flapper in my toilet tank, but was afraid I would need the entire kit. None of the rest of the components looked bad, so I thought I'd just try a new flapper...and Home Depot has an easy half dozen choices...nothing's easy. There were 3-4 cheaper than this one, and this one isn't expensive. But I bought this one because it is adjustable. It works perfectly. Buy it and spend a minute and 32 seconds installing it! That includes turning off the water! :)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OISMAN Not my preference
This could be some user error and some personal preference speaking, but I could not get one of the parts to adjust (the one that spins around the flapper) and the "low flow" design that requires you to hold the lever down for a long time to get the toilet to flush thoroughly is not my preference.
Again, the adjustment problem could be user error and the "low flow" frustration could just be personal preference, but I did not prefer this style of flapper.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Johnboy Wrong part. Had to return. Good price though and easy to install.
I purchased two different kinds and this one was the wrong kind so I had to return it. The employee recommend I get two different types in case one didn't fit. If I got the wrong one then I had to come right back and that would take time. If I got both then I could return the wrong one at my leisure. I did as he suggested. It was a smart decision. The one I wanted didn't fit. When I did take it back it was a totally hassle free experience.

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.
