    "hard flush" causes leak?

    Friend of mine said he had to fix an old Kohler toilet that leaked at the base, so he was going to change the wax seal. I said that I did not think you could get a leak at the flange unless water...

    See how over-large the tank looks? That toilet does not have an 8-gallon tank and the tub is not giant nor is the vanity extra high. That bowl is at least 5" lower than standard and smaller in...

    Well, I can report success costing less than 1 cent.

    As the flush lever rotated toward the front of the tank, dragging the flapper off line, I could see that the flapper's attachment ears had lots...

    Now I see what you mean. The factory config is actually very close to directly over the flapper. In testing, I would pull the chain straight up by hand and the flapper stayed centered and didn't...

    How can I bend the rod to make it pull directly upward? The rod rotates 90 so that the "L" bend at the end moves the chain upward, but also toward the front of the tank.

    If I bend the rod at...

    Thanks for the follow up. I lowered the water level to just touching the flapper and it did not drop below the rim of the flush valve orifice in 4 hours, so it would appear that flush valve rim or...

    Two-week old Toto Promenade 1.28
