So far, this product did not solve my toilet bowl leak. It was recommended by Home Depot as a replacement for my Pegasus 834-219 toilet. It does not leak when water line is below flapper. So, I replaced the flapper with same model, and it still leaks. So, I tried a Korky universal Ultra, and it still leaks. I have contacted tech support. Frustrated.

Thank you for posting this review. Ghost flushing or water leaking into the bowl after a new installation of a flush valve may not be the flapper. We suggest checking your refill tube position, if you have the refill tube shoved down or placed inside the overflow pipe pull it out and reattach to the overflow pipe using our refill clip. This will stop a siphon from occurring and stop the leak. Another area to check is the flush valve lock nut. You may need to tighten ½ turn beyond hand tight to stop the leak.

Yes, you have to remove the tank from the toilet. If you've recently replaced the FILL VALVE, great. Otherwise (and while you're up to your elbows in labor) replace that piece too. The bolts on this kit are great (very beefy). The nuts and washers are stainless steel. The included sealing washers are thick and dense. All in all, you get a new toilet when done.

This repair kit is complete with all parts necessary for flush valve replacement. Installation was easy. The only issue I had was with the large gasket/seal between the tank and the toilet, which does not allow the tank to sit completely flush on the toilet (I have 23 year-old Briggs 1.6gpf toilets). I was afraid to tighten the bolts too much to bring the tank flush with the toilet for fear of breaking the ceramic flanges on the toilet. So now there's a small gap between the tank and the toilet, and if I push on the tank it will wobble ever so slightly, but the seal does not leak. I don't know if the seal will compress over time, but the old original seal may have been smaller to fit this brand of toilet. In any event, the new kit solved my slow trickle problem, and the toilet does not "run" anymore.
