    Default newbie here

    greetings to all, my name is terp. The flush handle rubs against the porcelain, should there be some kind of washer made of tough plastic between the handle and porcelain? the flush handle does not operate very smoothly since it is rubbing the porcelain. I been thinking of putting some kind of strong plastic to use as a washer (like the thickness of a credit card), what do you think? thanks terp

    did this handle come with the toilet or was it replaced with a new one.
    if it is a replacement then the wrong handle was installed for that brand. the cheap handles say universal but that's because they work on most toilets and mostly older ones.
    I'm just starting to work with an old friend of mine to bring solar electric and hot water systems, wind turbines, Flex Fuel Boilers, batteries, hydroponic gardening, books, pellet grills and more. Also the parts for DIY installation.

    no this is a new toilet with new handle, the handle seems a little bowed, it is a powerflush. sometimes it keeps running after flush, read instructions on tweaking the the actuator w/screw. took handle off and it looked like it was bowed. do you think handle will break if I try to bend it? thanks terp
