In response to Re: Periodic Toilet Tank Leak

: I have a 15 year old mid flow American Standard Toilet that has a slow tank leak. I have replaced the flapper with a Fluidmaster type with a wax ring. I believe the seal is good and that the flapper is working properly. But the water continues to drain very slowly from the tank. Every hour or two the water has dropped enough to cause the fill valve to refill.

Bill,
you can not use the fluidmaster flusher fixer kit on the American Standard. The "flapper" was usually an actuator and must be replaced with exactly the same one. I willpost a picture of the most common one for the 2 pc. American standard toilet.
