In response to Re: Gerber Toilets: Special Gasket?
: : Does anyone know if Gerber toilets require a "special" tank-to-bowl gasket? I recently replace the flush valve and, therefore, the gasket. The HW store had 2 kinds and I got both. Both leak like a seive. I put the old one back and it worked, but had a small leak (probably induced when I removed it or because of age). I can't tell by looking if the old one is significantly different from the new ones I bought.

: : Thanks in advance!

: Dave, Gerber close couple gaskets are "Special" I handle 4 different gaskets for the gerber depending on the model. If you can find what model toilet you have I'll give you the proper gerber number and you may be able to find it a gerber dealer near you.

Scott,
Thanks for the reply. The only marking I could see on the tank was a big "K" and a date (sometime in 1987). Does this help? If not, I could still go to a local dealer -- if you could help me find one -- and get all 4 and try them one at a time. Not fun, but at least I know it would work.

Thanks again!
