A: Our American Standard toilets with Sloan Flushmate units were installed in 1995. One cartridge had to be replaced in 2019. The other one is just now failing (Feb.2023). We have only two people living in the house since new, so your mileage may vary.
A: No, I had to order online and pick up at store Watched a you tube video for installation instructions and bam was installed in less than 20 minutes
A: It will remain mostly dry. Residual water may collect but you're talking about a very small, immeasurable amount. The seal on the cartridge is allowing the water to seep out of it. Eventually it will fail to pressurize the vessel enough that it won't flush any longer. Replacement is a snap.
A: Some water can be expected. The cartridge accumulates some on top. That’s probably what you’re seeing.
A: Nope, the interior of the "tank" doesn't have to be dry, as a little water leaks out of an anti-siphon fitting at the top of the pressure tank where the water line attaches to the pressure vessel. This is normal and it falls into the toilet on every flush. Replace this part only if the toilet doesn't flush properly. Otherwise save your money.
A: The answer is NO you don't need to repair the pressure vessel tank. The water you see is in the ceramic tank is from the over pressurizing of the pressure vessel, it's there so the pressure vessel doesn't explode from being OVER PRESURIZED....so no repair is required!! That being said if the water s at the top of the ceramic tank then the pressure vessel is leaking and should be replaced. So a little water in ceramic tank is ok but a lot of water is a pressure vessel leak that needs repairing.
A: Yes, the tank should never have water in it. The cartridge is normally the culprit, and since you have water around the top I guarantee it's the problem. They are easy to change just be sure to lubricate the o-rings. Good instructions come with it, be sure to read them. The cartridge doesn't normally need to be screwed all the way down.
